Following a hint from my old chum Alan Winstanley in the UK, I just bounced over to the Science and Nature section of the BBC television website to check out an experiment on one's ability to tell real smiles from fakes.
This is rather interesting. Once you've answered two questions as to (a) how optimistic / pessimistic you think you are and (b) how you rate your ability to tell real smiles from their fake counterparts, you're on your way.
Basically you are presented with a series of 20 short videos (each only a few seconds long). After each video you click a button for "Real" or "Fake" and move on. At the end they present you with thumbnails of all 20 videos and show which ones you got right / wrong. Alan says he got 16 right ... I only managed 14 ... how well do you think you would do?
