This is a wonderful idea. We know that forcing a smile will actually adjust one's mood to the better. Setting up an automatic door to insist on just that is going to be terribly useful. We may end up having everyone walking around with smiles on their faces.
This actually induces like behavior which is to everyone's health and well being.
We barely understand just how reactive our moods are to cues from other persons. We do not want to think this is true but it is.
The most powerful effect that i have discovered is that when a man has become very angry with a woman, that anger will literally switch off the moment he forces his eyes down the that woman's breasts. It is really uncanny and i do suggest men to try this. Better yet women, if you are in a anger spell with your better half, ask them to lower their eyes to your breasts. then calm down before either of you say anything else.
It is a shock to discover how easily that anger is physically manipulated in a way that has zero to do with your 'conversation'
It’s a paradigm that Hong takes to an extreme with his prototype, a vision of the future where we’re being read and analyzed by the machines that surround us at every moment. Still, could there be an upside to having to fake a smile to get through the Smiling Door? Studies have shown that even a forced smile can reduce stress and even make you happier. If you had to smile on your way to the office each morning, maybe a long commute wouldn’t feel quite so horrendous.But it would mean allowing our emotions to be manipulated by unthinking algorithms that were likely developed to make someone else money. Either way, smiling for the camera would take on an entirely new meaning.
