Take The Fake Smile Test

Ok, so they get me every time.

“Ohhh… Geoff! Don’t believe anything they tell you in there…she’s just a smiling assassin….”

Y’know what? I never know who is faking what and have long since gave up trying to tell.

Instead, I prefer to take everyone at face value until I have a reason not to.

This is a bit of fun…take this fake smile test– 20 smiles – genuine or fake?

How good are you?

I got 12/20!

Go here for tests on detecting fake voice, face and micro expressions
