How did you do with the test?

not bad, but show I can be conned! although all my errors were thinking genuine smiles were fake. too suspiscious perhaps.

I found myself smiling back at the genuine smilers!

And feeling creeped out by the fakes

15 out of 20 - better than I thought I would, it was quite difficult - I got the east Asian face wrong, I genuinely had no idea - so her eyes were harder for a westerner to read? and I have lived in Japan and Korea so it is not as if I have never been around people from east Asia. hmmm. thanks

I'll be interested in the correlation between how well people thought they would do and their actual results. People have a tendency to overestimate their own abilities in all kinds of fields.

Mind you I'm a bit rusty but I do know what I'm looking for - it's all in the eyes.

That was interesting, I got 18 out of the 20 right, but I am not usually that good at watching people's faces or paying attention to detail so I was pretty surprised at the result.

People with anti-social personality disorder or NPD have severe difficulty with this apparently. Interesting.

14/20... Should I be worried ?
Yep, it's all in the eyes. Got most of the fakers though...
