The philosophy behind the law of attraction is simple. By focusing on positive or negative thoughts, individuals potentially have all of the power to invoke targeted experiences into his or her life from intuition.
Your smile plays a huge role in establishing the connection between how you are being perceived, both in approach and pursuit, as well as your relation to the universe. Many studies associate your smile with your level of confidence, while aesthetic experts attribute specific elements of one’s smile into the standard mold of what is to be considered signs of “classic beauty,” including large eyes, high cheek bones and supple lips.
Ultimately, a person’s smile speaks volumes without having to say any words. Politicians, movie stars and media people practice smiling in order to engage the public and create mass appeal. So do those in the hospitality business.
When it comes to the first rules of attraction, most often what comes into play is the person’s smile. Julia Roberts in particular stands out in this category for her toothy smile, which helped catapult her career into super stardom. Herlegendary, red carpet smile has been accredited for creating an instant connection between audiences and the camera with her mass appeal.
On a deeper level, your smile can also be a very important social cue for others to translate. Have you ever thought about all your various smiles throughout the day? The types of people you are attracting? How often do you do them, and in what circumstances?
In the easily forgettable, yet underrated rom-com “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!” Topher Grace and Kate Bosworth ignite their romance by acknowledging their personal non-verbal prompts by pointing out each other’s particular smiles.
In a quest to prove his love, Pete roasts Tad with his investigation,
Like do you know she has six smiles? One when something really makes her laugh. One when she’s making plans. One when she is laughing out of politeness. One when she is uncomfortable. One when she is making fun of herself. And one when… she’s talking about her friends.
Later on in shocking plot twist, Rosalee confirms her devotion by stating,
You have five smiles Pete. One when you think someones an idiot. One when you think someone’s really an idiot. One when you’re singing to Barry White. One when you’re getting all dressed up. And one when you’re looking at me.
As someone who has been described with the adjectives “overly smiley,” and who believes strongly in energies and the laws of attraction, I decided to investigate my very own distinct smiles. After quality research and analysis of my habits and behaviors, the results are riveting.
Here are six different smiles people commonly have and what they mean:
1. No-Teeth Squint
2. Awkward Smirk
3. Fake Grillin’
4. Genuine Gummy Grin
5. Semi-Posed Smile

So, next time you go to flash your teeth, make sure you understand what kind of message you are sending. Know your smiles, and know your audience. Ready, set, attract.
