Who’s smiling

Pretty cool little site from the BBC on fake vs. real smiles.  There’s 20 short videos of people smiling and you need to say whether each smile was real or fake.  So, I know that a real smile is all about the eyes, so that’s where I focused my attention.  Nonetheless, I only got 12/20– basically chance.  It was actually much harder than I thought it would be.  Or, maybe I’m just not so good at reading people.  How’d you do?

    15/20 for me… but I was straight up guessing on a few of them, so I probably just got lucky ;)
