Just a little quiz thing, I got 14/20, kind of interesting.
But I'm more so posting this because I'm convinced they used mutants as test subjects, because people can't be that ugly.

I've done it a few weeks ago. I think I got around 14/20.

I'm gonna try it again for fun.

I'm sure #3 has the biggest head in the world.
#13 is scary.

I got 13/20. Still the same results.

I'm amazing... It's all in the eyes, though. You look to see if their brow goes down and if their eyes squint up and stuff. I'm pretty good at telling when people are lying/lying myself, so I can usually spot stuff like this.

17/20.

but i'm a cynical cunt so that probably weighs in.

edit: of note, the three i got wrong were genuine but i thought they were fake.

Agreed. That is possibly the most disturbed head-shape ever. EVER.

They are SO ugly. Eyes hurt :(

Anyway, 16/20. I'm not too bad.

16/20.. The ears played a big part for me, since my ears more often than not raise when I'm really smiling, but not when I'm fake smiling.

13/20. Not THAT bad... Right? :(

You guys are really good. They all seemed fake to me, in fact. And in real life, every smile seems like real. I don't know a lot about humans. =/

Wow. That was bad. I thought I was able to see if a smile is fake or not because it works with my students. I always know when something is not fine with them. So I think it's much more of knowing the person well. The quiz did surprise me. It's really hard to notice when it comes to people you don't know well.

12/20......I expected more, fuck, that's because I'm sooo tired, every muscles on my body hurts, fucking soccer. However I ruled and scored many beautiful goals.

I got 14/20. I was expecting maybe a little better than that. A few of them seemed fake to me that weren't, I think because they just suddenly got all serious faced right before the video ended.

I got 15/20. Weird, half of those people look like Meth users.

Camilamazed
10-29-2006, 03:28 PM
Plus, it's hard to tell because those people probably knew they were part of a experience and how can a person smile genuinely without being natural?

mrconeman
10-29-2006, 03:33 PM
Be shown a funny clip, a meaningful picture, be told a joke, theres many ways to make someone smile.

Though I do agree the test is pretty flawed as any test is, it lacks validity.

I didn't figure out the play button right away and kept asking myself why the clips were so short.

10-29-2006, 05:37 PM
I got 17/20

I knew alot had to do with the eye's when looking at a smile, so i focused mainly on that, rather than some of their hideous teeth or features.

10-29-2006, 05:44 PM
I only got 11/20, but one fairly obvious thing you can use (this only is applicable to a few of those video samples), is that if their cheek muscles drop in a single swift motion into a straight face after the smile, it's obviously fake.

12/20, I suck. I thought almost all of them were fake.

I win I win I win.

18/20.

The thing is, the two I got wrong were the first two, before I had figured out how to work the play button. The first didn't even let me watch it for some reason. But when I got to watch them again, I would have for sure picked the right answer. ALL I did was look to see if they had sparkley eyes, and am totally impressed that it worked.

So does this correlate to my having an optimistic outlook on life?

The explenation was really interesting.
I got the first two wrong cause it irritated me how fast and weird their smile ended, but then I figured it out and got, like, the next eight right. Or maybe that was just luck. Either way I would have expected more.

15/20.

I got two mistakes in the first fifteen & then, during the last five, I kinda lost my concentration, because I didn't feel like observing strange smiling people anymore. *shrug* still, I think it's a pretty alright score.

I thought #4 and #10 were real, but no. I was sure #8 and #10 were fake, wrong.

He said GIRLS.
I mentioned girls,to present a boy's smile from a female,not a male perspective. Girls like a cute smile from a boy, which is why I posted one,and Hayden as examples of a cute,AND a real smile (not fake ones) from a boy AND girl. It ain't the age I was lookin' at,it's the smiles! What a better example to use a male and female together,that's MY point.

Who Hayden? http://smiley.onegreatguy.net/dunno.gif SO? She was born August 21,1989 to be exact,not sure about her brother. Besides,with the 16 to 18 legal age range,she's borderline. She's also datin' a 21 year old at present,so that tells you the chances she takes.

I tried it. I actually got a 20/20. I'm pretty good at distinguishing what people feel. I'm empathetic and intuitive, and plus you can really tell from their eyes. The eyes kind of twinkle when it's genuine. And fake smiles just seem so emotionless and boring.
