Spot the fake smile - October 27th 2012, 09:52 PM

We done this in Psychology a few days ago. I found it quite interesting:

I only had 13/20 right. How did you do?

Heh. 11/20. I've been kinda depressed lately though, so I think I was seeing a lot more fake smiles than there actually were.

15/20 for me. =) It was about an even mix of mistaking genuine for fake and fake for genuine.

I got 17 out of 20, then again, I used to go to school with a fake smile everyday so I know how to cover it up. You can tell via the expression in the eyes and directly around the lips, especially at the sides. If it's natural and genuine, it will look exactly like that.

16/20 BOOM!

It may be cliche, but I was watching the eyes more than the smile


Women are women, regardless of sex,
and men are men, in the same respects.

You can be both, or a mix of the two,
or you can be neither, if that's what suits you.

But people are people, whatever their parts,
because what really matters, is inside of our hearts.

I got 16/20 since I usually go around school and home with a fake smile but generally look pretty grim, things change though, but still have to fake a few laughs and smiles when my friends jokes are too immature for me to present a true smile. Lol. BUt, eyes do generally give away the person's act.

11 from 20. =).

^ That's a real smile xD. And yeah, as a couple of people have said, I smiled as well. I guess smiling IS contagious, whether it's real or fake xD.

And laughing REALLY is =D.

20/20! I struggled with a few of them, such as #7 since there wasn't noticeable change in the eyes, however, initial posture and head/body movement were contradictory. Ultimately, I guessed on this one.
