Can you spot the fakers?

My younger sister who is all smart and in college and stuff sent me this awesome link to a psych study they were learning about.


You essentially watch 20 smilers and see who is faking and who isn't. Then they give you the science on how you can tell. Totally cool.

I am apparently very bad at it.

9 out of 20 correct.

I blame my optimistic personality, the pretending part of me that keeps me from yelling, "HOW FREAKING OLD ARE YOU?! FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD'S SHOULD NOT BE CRAWLING ON THEIR HANDS AND KNEES HIDING BEHIND MY DESK IN THE MIDDLE OF A LESSON! GAH WHY DID I CHOOSE JUNIOR HIGH YOU IMMATURE LITTLE SNOTFACE!"

You should try the game out and comment how you did. Or just fake it to find out how to spot the fakers.

i got 18/20. i covered up their actual smiles and just looked at the eyes. apparently it works!

on a somewhat related note, are average people in the UK really that unattractive? like that especially weird looking woman who looked like the sides of her head were shaven?

11/20. And I have a degree in psychology. That's embarrassing.

Autumn, I thought that was a man. Isn't it so cool? Real smiles come from the part of your brain that regulates your hear rate and breathing! I got 17 out of 20. I like to look at their mouth after they are done smiling, if it is still tight then it's probably a real smile.

I got 14 out of 20. It was lots of fun.

18/20! I guessed based on how much their upper cheek obstructed their eyes.
