Scientifically & philosophically, is it fair to say that our faces do not represent our real selves?

Reading someone face and expression is far better than trusting their words and faster than parsing their actions

Sometimes it's not so easy. Try to read face and expression of blind person or some "mumbo-jumbo" 'spiritual leader'.

that's actually a good point for the born blind , not so sure for later

I had a personal experience with a deaf/dumb her face language was totally blank ,
that was very unsettling until I worked out that she never learned to "speak " face language
that's some kind of bodily emoticon
as for Gurus , no problem there they are very believable , their face is credible ,
that's a big part of the issue especially when people want to believe
