The present study was designed to identify the mental state of psychotics, neurotics, and normalcy through facial expressions. Independent variable was facial expression shown in photographs. Dependent variable was the number of correct judgments made under three different conditions. Subjects (N = 30) were shown 15 photographs of psychotics, neurotics. and normal individuals in random order. To see the difference between the groups, t-test was applied. The number of correct judgments made by the subjects about the facial expressions under three different conditions were not significantly different. Facial expressions of a person. irrespective of whether he/she is normal or abnormal, therefore, may be an indicator of his mental health.
