Smiles

anyeone pointed me to the following test on BBC's website. It's a test to see if you can tell between fake and genuine smiles. I did worse than I expected (only 13 out of 20) although interestingly I spotted more of the fake smiles than the genuine ones. Suspicous mind or what?

I also think I know one of the guys they use?

Anyway, go and check to see how you fair at Spot The Fake Smile

Mee too!
I only got 13 out of 20 right - I erred on the side of genuine though, naive perhaps?

Re: Mee too!
I got 13 out of 20 too! But I definitely erred on the side of fake!

And yes, one of the guys I have definitely seen out and about on the London goth scene...

I think he may be one of Sinbad's friends but am not entirely sure.

Spot The Fake Smile
Results
You got 19 out of 20 correct


And the only one I didn't get correct is the one smile I didn't see so had to guess about :)

My friend who sent me the link has a theory that women and minorities do better than white men because we are more used to seeing people smile at us that way because of racism and sexism.

I have no idea whether this is true or not, but it would be curious to compile the data and see.

19 out of 20 - not bad! It's all in the eyes...

14 out of 20, but I have a headache and my eyes feel funny. I still managed to err on the side of genuine though. I can't even be miserable properly. I hate colds.
