Dr. Paul Ekman, one of the world’s foremost experts on emotions and facial expressions, has spent over 40 years researching the universal expressions of seven key emotions: anger, disgust, fear, surprise, sadness, contempt and happiness. Based on this research, Dr. Ekman has personally developed the training tools available on this site to share his discoveries. These tools train users to spot rapid facial expressions called micro expressions, which occur when a person either deliberately or unconsciously conceals their emotions. Learn to identify these hidden signals to gain insight into the emotions of yourself and others. With unlimited access on any computer, you can set your own learning pace, test your accuracy and track your progress.

You can learn to read micro expressions:

Learn to detect concealed emotions
Dr. Ekman’s two core products are Micro Expressions Training Tool (METT) and Subtle Expressions Training Tool (SETT). These are supplemented by METT intensive (a more in-depth and varied addition to METT) and METT profile (which includes reading expressions from a side view). These tools consist of a series of “learn” “practice” and “test” modules in which the user learns to decipher the given micro expression shown in quick flashes of photos displaying the seven universal emotions. Users study these images under varying speeds, and, with practice lasting about an hour, their eyes become trained to detect hidden facial expressions which emerge in a fraction of a second. By spotting these flashes of expressions, users gain a unique skill: to detect emotions of others which may otherwise be hidden.

Apply your knowledge in everyday life
After learning to read micro expressions, the next step is to learn how best to apply this important knowledge. For this reason, Dr. Ekman created the series of Responding Effectively Training Tools (RETT). There are three tools in the series, focusing on the context of family, the workplace and law enforcement. These modules consist of various video scenes which the user watches and then chooses from different response options to interact with the content. In this way, the user learns about how to respond to emotional displays in real-life scenarios.
