|Spot the Fake Smile.

Society teaches people to not show true emotion.
From found_online, a link brought me to a BBC Science & Nature quiz to guage how well one spots a fake smile.
Find Out How Well You Spot Fake Smiles.
I scored 9 out of 20 correct.
We are way too busy admiring skulls.
I am a very poor judge of character! I learned that the day I realized my marriage was a loveless sham. Sorry I really need to stop bitching about that..eeek
Character is more than a smile.
I purposely hold on to genuine smiles of my own because I feel that too short of a smile, however genuine, tends to look forced.
Plus, most people can't tell when people are faking, including a large majority of men who think that 2 minutes of full-on humping without any pretense translates into a fun time.
Smiles, words, it's all stuff I suck at judging.
Ignorance is not bliss, but neither is being paranoid about who really cares or not. I will go with the intense gut instincts from now on (even though those are small and few!)
I never open my mouth when I smile. I always have itty bitty smirks.
2 minute wonders LOL Guys like that suck. I guess 2 minutes of bad humpy isn't as bad as 2 hours of it *shrug*

Re: Meh, No Biggie.
I think to break of the paranoia, know in your heart that people who don't like you or feel like you've hurt them . . . like I mentioned before, if they don't come out and say whatever, then it never happened, but also, if they're trying to hurt you and they don't own up to it, they're shitheads. Neither situation should be that much of a concern because those folks end up receiving just as much deceit and injustice in their own lives. I mean, how can you do anything about a possible wrong if someone doesn't let you know about it?
i got 17 out of 20. i'm really surprized i did so well. the three i missed i am actually surprized i got wrong, because it is more obvious that they are real / fake the second time viewing.
I didn't go back to it.
Do you remember which ones were the ones you missed?
one was a middle aged woman with blonde hair, one was the 40 year old guy with scruffy face and crew cut...i shouldve got that one. the third was a younger looking girl. i shouldve got that one because her face got all serious looking for a sec after she smiled.
i didnt go back either, at the end, it gives you the option to see the ones you missed again.
Just hit the back button on your browser, and it'll return you to the video to play again, at least, that's what it did for me as I backed up to the friends page.
