Are you truly happy or are you just faking it?

Are you truly happy or are you just faking it? See if you can spot the real smiles amongst the Cheshire cats.

I did it and got 10/20 :(. I don't think that is that bad. Men are meant to be bad at this n e way aren't they? What are the evolutionary advantages of this??

I think it is like any other skill you learn by doing it. I work with people a lot who try to fake things even to themselves. It is extremely hard to judge from just one smile. I say it not a fair test at all and probably involves a bit of luck.

I do not need a test to admit I am faking it. Ask some of my former girlfriends.
