Test Your Detective Skills





Can you spot a fake smile? Most people can't. There's a great test on the BBC website that will let you see if you've got what it takes. For the record, I scored 17 out of 20. Yeah, I'm bragging. See if you can beat me. Click here.

18/20.
I'm not sure this test can pinpoint any "detective skills". It's more about general empathy, IMHO.

Anonymous: Yes, the test measures empathy. But a good detective can recognize people's emotions and understand their motivations. I would imagine being able to spot a fake smile might come in handy when interviewing suspects or witnesses.

16 out of 17 ;w; It's funny since I knew that one can tell from the eyes...

Btw, isn't that a that a trick they tell models so their smiles can look more natural? XD

17 out of 20. Hehe. The giveaway is totally in the eyes. Also, whether or not someone continues smiling after they smile, or whether they just go to a poker face. I missed smiles 1, 4, and 9. :P
Fun test! Thanks for the link!

Spot The Fake Smile

Results

You got 15 out of 20 correct

Look at the labels below each image to see which smiles are genuine and which are fake.

Ticks and crosses show which smiles you got right and wrong.

Click on the image if you want to see the smile again.


15/20--- not so good

I'm back!!!
I've missed you all so much!
I had to leave for a while, and then was afraid that I would have missed some huge experience and I would seem like I was imposing on your little party. But I got over that, so here I am.

By the way, I got seven wrong. I think I was to suspicious that they were being filmed, until I realized they could have just listened to a joke.

19 out of 20
eyes are pretty reliable- if they didnt really squint up, the smile is probably fake...
but werent those faces really weird?
did they take some random person and ask them to smile?
