Can you Spot a Fake?

Do you think you can tell when somebody is happy versus just faking it? Can you tell a genuine smile from a forced one? Take this test from the BBC to see how well you do. There are 20 videos of people smiling - some real, some fake - each viewable only once. The differences are subtle, and explained at the end.

How did you do?

1 out of 20? i barely understand how that's possible but it may explain a lot about my life!

If it were 10/20 then it would be that you are no more likely to spot a fake smile than chance, but here you are actually significantly crossing the wires thinking fake smiles are genuine and genuine smiles are fake! weird.
