    I guessed #3 and #16 incorrectly. I think #3 might have been British though and #16 looks like a criminal, so they don't count. I'm curious about what role pessimism vs. optimism plays in this. I tend to be more pessimistic.

    15 of 20. Better than I expected. I thought the shoulders were the most useful piece of anatomy to recognizing the genuine article. Real vs fake smiling is a strange dichotomy.

    It's the eyes. In a real smile, the muscles around the eyes contract, also called a Duchenne smile. Plus, the fake smiles looked damn creepy! They really chose the creepiest people for this. I loved the person with the unkempt mullet.

    I did some research on body language once, so I just looked for crinkling around the eyes.
