SMILING and LAUGHING - Types of Smiles and Laughter


Your Smile, Your Laugh, Your Personality Signature
By 
VIKRAM KARVE

While I was clearing up some old papers in my bookcase, I came across some jottings in an old diary I had made more than thirty five years ago probably while sitting in my university library. 
I had scribbled something about types of smiles and laughter.

Your smile (and your laugh) is like your signature – your very own personal imprint, like password or signal. 

Now I want you to to do this:

Keep a mirror in front of you and practice each of the types of SMILES described below

and then

HAVE A LAUGH and observe how you laugh.

Don’t you want to know which type of smile and laugh means what, and which suits you best...?
Come on, get ready, and check it out, and tell us which type of “smiler”and “laugher” you are.



TYPES OF SMILES

Lip smile – Smile only with their lips.


Cheesy smile – Smile with their teeth


Twinkle smile – Smile and Laugh with their dancing eyes 


Sweet smile – Exercise their chubby cheeks



Wry smile – Know something you don’t



Tee-Hee smile – Smile with their necks



Body smile – Smile wholeheartedly with their whole body



And of course you’ve seen the fake, contrived smiles of forced geniality.


And would someone please tell me what is the meaning of: “to smile like a Cheshire Cat” for I have never seen a cat smile but I can tell you that Dogs do smile very often...


TYPES OF LAUGHTER


Hearty Laughter – All heart



Belly Laughter – Body, belly and heart



Seal Laughter – Barking, high pitch, like a seal



Guffaw – Clearing one’s lungs and windpipe



Giggle – silly, embarrassed laugh



Titter, Snigger, Snicker – mocking laughter



Chuckle – A quiet laugh to yourself



Chortle – Gurgling laughter



We also have a burst of laughterrolling with laughterhorse laughlaughing up one’s sleeve (a secret somewhere), and laughing one’s head off.


I am sure there are many more types of smiles and laughter.

Dear Smilers and Laughers, do look around and see whether you observe the above types of smiles and laughs and don't forget to tell us about some more types of smiles and laughs you have observed and experienced.

I wonder if one’s personality and character is related to the way a person smiles or laughs...?

Now do enjoy yourself, look around and observe how people smile and laugh.

Most importantly, smile and laugh to yourself in the mirror, and draw your own conclusions.

HAVE A HEARTY LAUGH...!!!

HA...HA...HA...
