Some people suffer from prosopagnosia - or face blindness - which affects about 2% of the population.
Prosopagnosiacs can't identify people from their faces. They will carefully scan faces for details like moles, skew teeth and monobrows. When they view a face from an odd angle, they might as well look at a new face. The rest of us process faces so quickly that we have stopped noticing them.
Stories can capture and direct attention.
Steven Spielberg said: "The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie brings a whole set of unique experiences. But through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time."
Fake emotions displayed mainly on the surface for the sake of the job profile are termed as surface acting.
It is the Mcdonalds checkout guy who gives a polite smile because he is told to or the CEO who has to hide his imposter syndrome or the bouncer at a concert who has to scowl and appear menacing even though he too is enjoying the show.
Surface acting is degrading to our well-being as it is a disconnect from our true nature and leads to exhaustion and self-estrangement.
