    Can you spot a fake smile

    This web-test shows 20 different people smiling (videos). Can you spot the fakers? Very interesting.

    All fake.

    Nobody smiles with a video camera in their face!

    Wow, I am awful, I only got 9. I wonder if this means I am a poor judge of character or if I was just too distracted by the dog.

    I didn't try, but the key is the eyes.

    That's what I thought too, but I don't think it's enough...take it if you have time, they say some interesting things at the end about eyebrows and the muscles in the cheeks.

    I think you may be right...but I went strictly with the mouth and got 75% right.

    I only got 12.

    I think it's because I adjusted my criteria mid-stride. I began focusing on the eyes about midway through and started doing a lot better.

    Looks like I'm the leader in the clubhouse with an 8.

    You know- this may have been answered, but how did the test makers know if a smile was fake or not?

    I'm guessing they did something to get them to smile...offer a compliment, tell a joke, etc. For the fakers, they probably just asked them to smile. Make sense?

    It does, but just because these were the reactions they wanted, doesn't mean that's what they were.
