Is your smile sending the wrong message?

Filed under: Daily News,Health Care | Tags:, ,

Be careful how you smile around the office – it says a lot about your professionalism.

Raise your eyebrows with a smile and your flirting. Curl up the edges of your mouth while your brow is furled and could be perceived as condescending.

That’s what Patti Wood, self-proclaimed body language expert and author of Success Signals, says.

She says how you smile classifies you as one of four office personality types, an analyzer, a driver, an influencer or a supporter.

Take an online test at whatyoursmilesays.com to see what you’ve been saying to coworkers with your smile.

Wood teamed up with a company that makes natural oral care products to create the test.

  2. What does it say about your professionalism if use “your” when you should have used “you’re?” By the way, Anonymous, watch your spelling (grammar, not grammer).
