Cool! I got 18 out of 20. It's true what they say, "The eyes are the window to the soul." :)

19/20

It's all about the eyes.

I only got the first one wrong because I didn't know how to work the thing :P

Correct. 19 of 20 for me. No snake-oil salesmen need apply, thanks.

Thanks Roxanne! Really makes you think about the people around you on a day to day basis. What are they really thinking? 14 out of 20 right.

Oh yeah, you Rox! :)

14/20, but 3 I waffled on and made note of, to check after. So can I count half-points for those? :)

I didn't watch the smiles, but the eyes, brows, and foreheads.

Yep, it's a nice pick-me-up regardless of score.

I did get 18/20, and one of the two I really wondered about, but picked wrong. The other one completely fooled me.

And yep, it's all in the eyes.

I got 17 out of 20. Would have been 18 but I clicked the wrong button on one. :-( Missed 9, 11 and 17. 17 was the typo.

Very neat.

18 out of 20...

I think I read in either The Tipping Point or Freakonomics that the easiest way to tell if someone is faking a smile is to look at there eyes and the muscles that move them. So they are "Laugh Lines" around your eyes which I guess are called.... Crows Feet?

14 out of 20. I thought this was a good score until I saw what everyone else here got! :)
01/20/2008 09:44:44 PM · #18
12/20 - Clearly i'm not as good at reading people as I thought, better go back to internet poker!
01/20/2008 09:26:27 PM · #19
16/20
missed 4,5,19,20
01/20/2008 09:17:50 PM · #20
Not bad, 15 out of 20.
01/20/2008 09:17:06 PM · #21
I got 18 out 20 ...

Yep it is the eyes ~

That is why I never say NOW SMILE in a portrait session !

16

I was looking for the clues in the eyes, but a few of the women fooled me :D

Great test.
01/20/2008 09:15:49 PM · #23
19/20 :-)
01/20/2008 09:14:13 PM · #24
That was fun, but I was very bad - 10 out of 20. Maybe I'm too gullible.

Interesting that fake smiles are motored by different muscles than real smiles.

18 out of 20. I got 4th and the 8th wrong.
