Scott Shepherd Debunks Scientific Study

A recently published study by Ohio State scientists claims to debunk the common assumption that humans facial expressions were limited to six.

In 1994, James Russell was able to demonstrate that regardless of backgrounds or environments, everyone uses the same expressions to convey happiness, sadness, fear, disgust and other emotions.

Scientists who conducted the study said the previous assumption was the equivalent of only painting with ‘primary colors’. According to the Guardian, the head researcher claims “we have this basic assumption that the brain is a computer”, and the facial expressions are determined by algorithms.

I decided to put the Ohio State study to the test using Scott Shepherd as my subject. Based on his expressions, I’m inclined to think researchers aren’t finished discovering new ones yet.
