This is probably the corniest thread I've ever made but why do you think smiling is important? If you're wondering why I'm asking, it's because my maths teacher asked us to write half a page on it and I need some ideas.

I think smiling is really important to stay positive (not that i smile a lot)
I think smiling also may give you more confidence ^^

I smile all the time. There is barely a moment where you wont catch me LMAOing in the corner of the class. Thats where I sit, and everyone just kind of migrates over there with me XD

Frowning takes at least 80 muscles while smiling only one. Laughing before your test is actually good for you! It reduces tension and therefore making you less nervous and more confident. Also proved was smiling is a great medicine. Too bad adults laugh up to 15 times a day, compare with children who laugh 100 times a day.

Dunno..I think it keeps you happy actually ^^;;

Makes us happy and shows our emotions and it's nice for pictures - if you have nice teeth.

...what does smiling have to do with math class? That's what I'd like to know. XD;

Anyway, keeping a happy disposition (ie: smiling) tends to be the key to just being more cheerful in general. I've always been an optimist and smiling and keeping myself happy by not dwelling on the bad stuff is what keeps me going everyday. So smiling is very important, I suppose. As Chikara kind of said, people are usually more attracted to others who seem really happy, so you can make more friends that way too. :B

Smiling is evil, cold and stupid. ^_^

Yeah, I have no right to answer the question.......

Yes, I think smiling is very important. It shows you are happy or cheerful and you can pass that happiness to other people. Even if you don't know then, smiling at someone can make that person happy too. Especially if they are having a bad day.

And as others said, smiling is a lot more appealing to make at than an ugly frown :3

I think smiling is important to stay positive and happy.
I have actually never thought about it.
I don't smile much so I think I should smile more xD But some people don't like to smile, and they look sad.
So when you are smiling you also look happy :3

Smiling is very important I feel, to get anyone through the day; you won't be able to keep yourself feeling positive without being able to take humor in everyday situations.

I think it probably makes you seem a lot more approachable to strangers too, they wouldn't exactly want to come and ask things/talk to someone whos frowning and looks slightly suicidal lol.
But I don't think it's really needed or anything.. I don't really sit when I'm alone and just smile for the sake of it lol.

Smiling is good, it makes people think you're up to something.

Actually there are only 20 facial muscles...

Smiling not only gives one confidence, it also boosts one's self-esteem and allows an expression of joy. Sometimes, smiling can lead to even more joy, and that, is called laughter.

But mostly, it's just an expression of happiness and joy~

Hmm...smiling...I think smiling can be good or bad. Good as in it can be done to give a sign of gratitude; bad as in people can smile, but is the person really 'smiling inside'? What I mean it is an insincere smile is not so good. :\

May 10th, 2007, 12:58 AM
Haha...that's funny. It's a tough question to answer, even if you do it all the time. ^^ But yeah, I guess because it's contagious. It's true, I always see people slowly begin to throw a smile on when they see others who they are interacting with happy.

Like other people smile to stay postive and for people to think that you are postive as well. I really dont like smiling, for reasons uknown and alot of people want to know why but only a few of my friends no the reason why I dont smile

It has been tested by psychologists that simply changing facial expressions affect other people's mood. Thus, smiling will make others feel happier to some degree, even to people who are angry.

I smile a lot. It does wonders. <3

I think I have lost the ability to smile, lol :)

because then you won't have people asking you "aaaaaw what's wrong???"
I don't smile often, but it's not because I'm sad. I just often get deep in thought (or completely zone out :P ) and people take it the wrong way and think I'm depressed or something

Late reply, but what? That doesn't make sense. If you have "unknown" reasons as to why you smile, how do your friends know why you don't? O_o

Anyway, to answer your question, as late as it may be, smiling's important because if people didn't smile, they'd be nothing to live for, really. Everyone would be depressed and always looking on the bad side of things. At least with people laughing and smiling if makes others around you feel happier in general.

Yeah, as I said, our brains are wired that way, so smiling can make anyone happier.

Um... strange math teacher ya got there. o.o

Anyways. Though I may not smile a lot (I only do in school photos so that I won't have to hear "SAY PEACHES! =DD" from the photographer and people say my smiles look fake anyway), I think smiling is important. :3
