Organizations often communicate through messengers. A recent study has found that powerful people do not send back smiles to important people. However, they do tend to pass a smile to the one below them.
One of the researchers, Evan Carr, said, “Our interpretation of this is that when you are feeling powerful and see a low-status person, you are almost throwing them a bone, thinking Oh, I should smile at this person because I’m better than them”.
For the study, about 55 male and females were recruited. The participants were asked as to when they felt powerful. They were attached with devices to check their facial expressions. It was found that when they interacted with people they smiled to those who had below levels to them. Besides, the participants also said that they didn’t feel like smiling to those who are influential or important people.
The study was conducted by the researchers of California University. The study is first of its kind. The findings of the study will help researchers in understanding the behavior of humans while interacting in the society.
