Just a little test I did to investigate the mechanics of slapping oneself...

Yes, I'm more than a little curious about how that subject matter came to be.  ;)

Looking good thus far!

Funny that slapping yourself and the face palm have different meanings. The face palm means someone else has done something stupid or embarrassing. The forehead slap means *you* did something stupid or forgetful. The former mimics having a headache as if the other person is causing your brain to hurt. The latter is like you are trying to inflict pain on yourself as punishment

That's the thing, I'm not sure which it is. Is it self-frustration or frustration at an external thing?

 

I do think a slapping your forehead requires hitting it enough to make a noise. I would think a face palm is more like lowering your head and placing your hand. I see online that a distinction is made between fingers being splayed for a face palm and being together for a slap.

This would be the facepalm:

This would be a forehead slap:

And I think this would be burying your face in your hand out of grief:
