Spot the Fake Smile

Today, I propose that we play a game. Let’s see how good you are at knowing a fake smile from a real one.

Go to this link and take the test.

Then post your results in the comments, along with anything you want to share about how you decided which smiles were real and which were fake.

I got 13 out of 20.

The only hint I'll share is that this is NOT a trick test, where at the end you're told that all the smiles are fake. Good luck,says I,smiling.

What an interesting quiz! What a kick! I scored 12 out of 20. I can't wait until my daughter wakes up and can give it a shot. Thanks!

Hmm...? All of a sudden, I'm craving cheese!

Will you please stop teaching people these tricks?

I'm not going to be able to get away with anything anymore.

Dave King said...

Well, not as good as I thought I'd be!

Michelle said...

Wow, I suck. I guess I think everyone's fake.

I hope I am not called for jury duty. I'd let the wrong man go free.

As a career sales rep, I found body language and facial expressions a huge key to how things were going.. I know stuff I wouldn't even use, because of my ethics...

Boo! The video on the link wouldn't play for me, but it made me think hard about how confident I was..

Well, I got 17 out of 20. Not bad! My father was a salesman and told me to watch the eyes...

I'm never very good at this thing. I got a 13. Oh well.

I'm genuinely confused by the distinction between 'genuine' and 'fake' smiles. Does 'genuine' mean naturally occurring? Because if someone asked me to 'fake' a smile I'd make damn sure I was thinking of something that made me actually smile. Interesting.

I got 10.

17 of 20. The mouth can fake you out but the eyes don't lie. I can also discern an author's mood by reading their blogs. Jeanne is in a great mood today.

See I am gullible, but most of them look like they should be holding an inmate number, or looked like they just rolled out of bed, so who would know...13 out of 20...this was great Jeanne!

I got 14 out of 20. The most interesting part was the analysis about how to spot real smiles.
Fascinating.

I got 16 out of 20 right! That was really cool!
