How Empathic Are You?

Can you identify the fake smiles?

Myself, I got 17 out of 20 correct. I misidentified two genuine smiles as fake, and one fake smile as genuine, which tells me I may be very slightly more cynical than I need to be, but not by much at all.

What an excellent link! I scored miserably badly (9 correct answers), partly because I am paranoid and suspicious and kept putting genuine smiles as fakes. I noticed that I was more willing to assume women's smiles were genuine (it would have been fascinating if the experiment could also have yielded results about the link between attitudes concerning gender and race and willingness to believe a smile is real).
