Send wink

Postby Akinozshura В» 06.09.2019


By Autumn Sprabary. In fact, the meaning of a wink can be completely different depending on culture and context. We wink to show affection, to spark a laugh, to share an inside secret and for so many other reasons. We wink in person, in emails and in text messages. The Winking Face emoticon was approved as part of Unicode 6.

The act of winking involves contracting the orbicularis oculi muscle, which receives signals from the facial motor nucleus. Pop star and overall queen Rihanna shocked the world when it was discovered that she could not wink. Being able to wink with one eye but not the other is referred to as ocular dominance. How does ocular dominance differ from writing with a dominant hand or walking with a dominant foot?

The two are governed by different parts of the brain. Your ocular dominance is governed by the part of the brain that controls your field of vision.

Find an eye doctor and book an exam. A wink is just a wink, they say, but in reality that rarely is the case. A wink can be fun, teasing, flirty and — depending on the one doing or receiving the winking — unsettling. The meaning of a wink depends on the context, the surroundings and most of all, the two people involved.

A wink can be appreciated or inappropriate, depending on the circumstances, timing and the relationship between the person doing the winking and the one who is winked at. In some cases, a wink may not be a wink at all, but rather a facial tic or an eye twitch caused by stress, alcohol or any number of things. Research shows that when humans find something exciting or arousing, their pupils dilate and their blinking will increase.

Winking at someone as a means of flirtation plays off of excessive blinking, because winking intentionally communicates that the sight of someone is exciting to you. Cultures around the world have developed their own interpretations for the wink and, as expected, they're all over the map. Western culture — Western society has embraced the gesture and used it to communicate everything but the kitchen wink. Western culture winks require more context than in other cultures, because they can mean anything from flirtation or encouragement to mockery or malice.

For instance, after the Civil War, cadets at West Point Military Academy used winking to help each other cheat on tests. These days, winking is used in American sports to communicate specific instructions to teammates. Latin America — Keeping things simple and steamy , winking is used exclusively to communicate romantic or sexual interest. West Africa — In Nigeria, it is a sign of disrespect for a child to be in the same room as a guest, so parents will wink at the child to dismiss them from the room when visitors are present.

Australia — Taking a sharp turn in meaning, winking in Australian culture is considered rude and too suggestive, especially when done by a man to a woman. There are natural remedies that can eliminate those symptoms. The coolest part is that they interpret a wink or blink the same way, so feel free to give your cat a slow wink to send them some love.

So a wink from your dog may not necessarily be a sign of admiration, but of respect, which is still heartwarming. Winking in the right time, the right place and the right circumstances can be a wonderful thing. It could be the spark that kindles a romance. A shared wink among friends is confirmation of an inside joke or common bond. But beware of sending the wrong message with your wink.

A wink at work may not be appreciated, while a wink from your pet is always encouraging. A wink from someone on the train or bus can be creepy. And a wink in the wrong country to the wrong person can change the mood in the blink — or wink — of an eye. Shop now for sunnies at an optical store near you or online.

Schedule an exam. Find an eye doctor near you.
