Working energetically and devotedly; hard-working; diligent: an industrious person
Of all the faces out there I think I notice the industrious face the most, there is something about the intense look of concentration on a task that speaks to me. There is energy in work, a feeling of accomplishment or sometimes a feeling of total loss when things don’t go well. So the energy can be negative or positive and the outcome hangs so tenuously on a razors edge, but somehow it’s not always shown in the face. Right up until that last second before success or failure our brain power is engaged in the action, with fear and joy waiting for their queue to jump in and take over.
