Humans also use the puppy face for various reasons. Many people use this expression as a way to get something they want or to get out of doing something undesirable. For humans, the face is expressed by pushing out the lower lip, tilting the head down at a 45 degree angle, and look almost straight up with only the eyes. This gesture causes the eyes to appear to become larger and also causes the user to subjectively decrease in height to the recipient. This means that the user appears younger or more childlike, which can cause the recipient to foster feelings of protectiveness and kindness for the user and hence achieves the desired goals.
