Smiles are like safety nets. We use them to convey that everything is okay. We build them into all of our communication. They are a lifesaver in case of emergency. We depend on them to give us courage. We trust them. But the trouble with a smile is that we never truly know whether it is a trusted handshake, a polite nod, or a cover-up.
