I look at their eyes and how quickly the smile fades. Also, if they stare straight into the camera or not.

I liked that this was a study.
Got 18/20. Didn`t think I could get that high though. I didn`t like the way a smile is labelled "fake". Maybe it should be "forced" instead, a smile is a smile, there are no fake smiles.

18/20 and being able to spot fake people isn`t always so great. Sometimes, I would just like to be ignorant to how creepy fake niceness can be. Another thing I have noticed, is the pitch of a person`s voice increases and becomes squeakier the more fake a person is being about how much they like you. I learned this on the few (thankfully) times I have to be around my mother in law and sister in law. Its like nails on a chalkboard to listen to their hyper nice conversation. It must be painful for them too, to have to stretch their personalities so thin.

That was so awesome. I just got one wrong! I always knew I was good at spotting real and fake smiles. How you tell is if there eyes kind of light up. If their eyes don`t light up, that`s how you know if someone gave you a fake smile. I knew that before I took the test. I guess I can continue to preach that. I didn`t eat my words after all.

20/20! I so rule! But anything over 10/20 is good, I guess. I think you should look around the eyes, and how quickly their smile stops. If they stop quickly, it`s 99% fake. If they take a while to stop smiling, and their eyes are crinkled and shining, my guess is it`s genuine.
