How good are you at spotting fake smiles?
BBC - Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind - Spot The Fake Smile
The link takes you to a quiz where you have to label smiles either as genuine or as fake.

That was fun, thank you! I got 15 right.
I was thinking about smiles yesterday and wrote a little blurb about them in my blog as part of a way we can give our best to others. My mom is a compulsive smiler. A mean ole distant relative asked her why she smiles so much, she said, "I smile to let people I know I see them and that seeing them makes me happy."

lol, thanks brutha, that was funny. I got only 10 right. I find it extremely difficult with nothing but visual input. When I talk to someone live, I can feel if they feel smiley. But just from this short image... wow

It's all in the eyes!
I got 19. The only one I got wrong was the picture of the older woman with medium length blonde hair. I thought it was fake (since her mouth shape didn't seem natural), but it was actually genuine.

I got 15, which surprised me because in real life I have extremely good "radar" when it comes to spotting that sort of fakery. Nearly all the ones I missed were ones I debated over, but all the ones I got right I knew immediately whether they were real or fake. It's all in the eyes--I didn't even look at the actual smiles. In real-life interactions, I would also have had body language and voice inflections, plus the smiles' contexts within a given conversation to go by, so maybe it's not so surprising I only got 15 on this test, after all.

After reading this thread, I did it. I looked at the eyes and guessed 15 out of 20. However, there were 3 that I didn't get to see because I clicked on play too soon and it told me "can't play more then once", so I just took a wild guess. I know at least one of those were wrong, I'm not rememberin which other two I guessed. Fun test!
