Develop intercultural competence

How can we evaluate others’ facial expressions to better understand their emotions? Does this work when the communicator is attempting to hide or mask his or her emotions? Can we use facial expressions to overcome cultural differences or barriers or develop intercultural competence? How might someone from another culture use facial expressions similarly or differently? Do you believe that it is possible to detect a lie by evaluating someone’s facial expressions? Why or why not? If possible, provide an example of a lie you detected or one someone detected you telling. What gave it away?
