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.

I scored 15 out of the twenty. Couple were hard to tell and should of went with first thoughts. That was fun and interesting.
