    16/20 - I went back and looked at the 4 I missed and would have still picked the same answer. The eyes were what I focused most on.

    13 out of 20 correct. Not a very good result

    I got 16 out of the 20 correct. That was really interesting.

    19 out of 20 and I missed the one that had me second-guess myself. It's all in the eyes, yes, but if their smile makes you want to smile automatically, it's real. Fake smiles don't bring out the auto-smile response, at least for me. :)

    Look at Martha Stewart when she smiles - her mouth "smiles" but her eyes never do. After years of seeing politicians "smile" with no sincerity behind it we should all have high scores. I feel sad for these people. What have they accomplished in the end ?
