My coworkers have told me that I need to stop being so easy to read. Especially when I’m in a meeting or lecture and someone says something which I think is bullshit, or deliberately obscurantist, my face shows my thoughts.
Not co-incidentally, obscurantism and bullshitting are the things I feel most strongly about. Other emotions are far less of a problem. I have no problem keeping a straight and polite face when confronted with agression, weirdness, ignorance or anything else other people might have a problem with.
I would like to have a more neutral, polite face. Or at least, more control over my face. So I should just control my face, right? But just willing it so just doesn’t help.
Does anyone have tips? Books? Methods?
Most books seem to be about reading faces, not about controlling your own body language.
