Smile spotting – can you tell the difference?

smile surveyI was taking a smile spotting survey that I found from Kathy Sierra's blog (good reading) and I know a little bit about how to tell a fake smile from a real one (in theory) and I thought it would be fun to see how good I was at it.  At the beginning, I didn't do so hot because I was thinking about what little I knew about eyes and the like, but once I gave in and let myself intuit I got the rest right (although I wasn't very sure on some of them).  At the end of the survey, there are tips on how you can reliably recognize fake and real smiles.

  1. Uh-oh! I only found 6 on the 20. Don’t know what it really means, but I guess I still have a thing or two to learn…

    I got 16 out of 20 right! But then, I am very expressive myself so I usually can gauge the other person’s body language rather well 🙂 This was really interesting!

    Thanks for sharing,
