Fakin' It!

The other day, Carolyn pointed me in the direction of this really fascinating quiz . I am not usually too quick to participate in Internet Quizzes, but this one was different. In my life, I am a bit of a people watcher. I am extremely interested in human behavior, so this particular activity of observing people smile, and determining whether they are faking it or not appealed to me greatly. I successfully identified 19 out of 20. It validated my belief that I read people fairly well.

I urge you to go give it a try, and come back and let us know how you did and how it made you feel.

I have to admit....I am a bit confused still about one of them. I think I was distracted by trying to figure out if IT was male or female. eeeekkkk.....

*** oh and don't forget I'm on Top Momma! CLICK HERE!!!!! I know.....I know....you are sick of clicking it, but you love me right? At least a lilttle bit? Then....click it....once or twice, k?***


Now go on.....you know you want to. :)

I only got 14 of 20! Booo!

And I know exactly which one you were talking about - scary.

Now I'm off to click for you! :-)

Shudder. I'm gonna have nightmares after that one. You ARE good Corey - I got 15/20 and I consider myself quite the student of such things. :) I missed MORE after the scary person than I did before. Guess I got a little freaked!

Hugs and happy weekend.

I got 18/20. I thought I would probably get less than that just because there were some I wasn't quite sure about. But, I've also read a book about how to spot emotions in people's faces and knew to look for the lines around the eyes. So...I went into with "inside information" I suppose. I thought it would be a good book to read for reading my clients better.

I got 13 out of 20. I laughed through this entire quiz. I don't know what it is about watching people laugh in front of a camera that I find so amusing. Anyway thanks for the great laugh even though I didn't really do that well. Most of my wrong answers were with the fake ones that I thought were real.

I got 13/20. Some of those people were freaky!

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

20 out of 20! Woot! And that is why I am so good at my job. You can't fake me out.

Carolyn said...

Hilarious. I got the he/she one wrong too. Between that and all the bad teeth I ended up with (as you know) 16/20. Thanks for the linky-love Corey!

Isn't it just amazing how even the slightest smile of sincerity warms to the core ... while a 'radiant' and explosive smile without soul leaves us cold ... to the point of offended?

Jenty said...

I only got 14 out of 20! Shocking!

suzy2110 said...

I only got 12 out of 20 (worst so far!!)and I have a sodding DEGREE in psychology. Obviously money well spent for my folks, then....

Mama Zen said...

Suzy and I have the same score AND the same degree! In our defense, I think that we were stunned silly by the shocking array of unattractive people!

JC said...

Interesting... I got 18 correct. Wrong on one girl which was fake, one guy which was genuine. After watching those two smiles again, I should have caught the girl fake one... but still would be a toss up on the guy.

I think the he/she is a he.
And, after a couple of them, they all did start to look generally funny :-D

I got 18 of 20. I think it's that social worker training kicking in. Also, I'm in the he/she is a he camp. I'm pretty sure there was a little 5 o'clock shadow starting. Thanks for the link.

Huckdoll said...

You got 18 out of 20 correct

I don't know...the whole thing sort of freaked me out!

Lis Garrett said...

I got 17 out of 20 correct. All the ones that I second-guessed, I got wrong. Oh, and I think it's a man. I think . . .

holly said...

19 out of 20! i was surprised. i figured i got a fair few wrong. who knew i was brilliant? like you!

CMB said...

13 of 20 - not too good. I thought I would have been better. It was very interesting.

Michelle said...

That was fun! I got 17 correct, which surprised me as I didn't think I would do that well! :)
