Can you spot a fake smile? The BBC has a test you can take to see if you can spot a fake smile. There’s 20 different people and you have to guess if their smile is fake or not. Go take the test and tell me how you did.
I think it’s almost unfortunate that I got 18 out of 20 correct…perhaps that’s why I peg people so well and why I’m fairly picky about the friends I choose. Apparently, most people have a hard time with this test and the BBC made an interesting observation: “One possible explanation for this is that it may be easier for people to get along if they don’t always know what others are really feeling.”
Sooo…I’m sure you’ve taken the test by now. How did you do?
