Emotions taking me over...

I know this discussion seems late since the appearance of the newly added emoticons/myLot codes as we know them but well, better late than never! First thing; do you think the emotions of some of the faces correspond to their description? Like for example, this violet face , which is "fear". Does it really look scared? To me it looks extremely melancholic, or just awfully, violetly sad. The jealous face just looks terribly baffled instead of jealous. Like an upgraded version of "confused" emoticon. The suspicious face looks really disappointed, upset, betrayed. Silly face is what I would describe a guy's face after seeing his crush! LOL And SPOOKED, though it is rather cute, almost looks hypnotized instead of spooked. And what's a dunce cap? Help me out please! Do you use these smileys according to their descriptions or do you use them because they simply represent what you feel regardless of the description assigned for them? Have a ha-ha-haPPY myLot life!

hi i have less idea about reading the faces...but from your writings i guess you are a good reader. i have my photo in the ID can you tell me what it really looks like silly, spooked, suspicious or something else. well i think the eyes can tell you more about the person. well of course the face tells it too. but i think women know better than men in this regard...

Oh I am very poor at reading facial expressions of real people. With the myLot codes though, it's much easier since it's cartoons. Well anyway, just to try it out, I think you are a very nice person. Friendly, charming, and a gentleman!

I agree that some of these new emoticons don't make a lot of sense - but the dunce cap - well, that is something I do understand. I don't know if it ever really happened, but since it is such an "icon" of a time in schools where if a child did something really stupid or really misbehaved, they were made to sit in a corner with a "dunce cap" on their heads meaning they were stupid. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/dunce

I also keep hearing or reading the expression, "You are so dense". Could "dense" be from the word "dunce" used in a slang way?

I don't know - could be... Let's see - dunce-dense-thick... its possible someone doesn't think "you're so dunce" makes sense so they think its "dense", then that goes to the thinking that a "dense" person would be "thick" as in "thick thinking" so... maybe

I see. So how do you use "dunce" in a statement?

Hi a dunce cap is an old fashioned cap once put on the very dumb students in old fashioned schools , they do not do that anymore., the cap signifies the person is not very smart, a real dunce with out much intelligence. now I use in in stupid situations to show how I feel about the dumb situation. I think most emoticons are expressive and to me they do give a sense of what they are named. I use themn often to show my feelings about something. not about the p eople but the situation.

I just can't help but notice that there are some smileys here that don't coincide with the emotion that they are supposed to convey. Oh well, me and my observations! Ah and yeah, about the dunce cap. I also learned of its meaning just recently.
