A new BBC Two series looks at what happiness is and whether it can be measured.

Are you truly happy or are you just faking it? See if you can spot the real smiles amongst the Cheshire cats.

It's quite fun! I got 14 out of 20. What about you?

Cheeeese!

Brilliant link!!! Apr 28, 2006

Thank you so much Mitsuko for contributing the link.
It was interesting to find out that I'm one of the bad spotters of fake smiles...I only scored 10 out of 20! To think that I've always taken pride in being good at detecting liars... ... ... Really depressing indeed...but now I've learned my lesson!!! ;o)

Cheers,
Giulia

...in my dreams, 12 in reality

So the question is, of how many smiles on people's pictures on the ProZ site are genuine? Mine is, but I wouldn't trust my judgement beyond that.

Thanks, Mitsuko! Apr 28, 2006

Thanks a lot Mitsuko for this nice little link. We all need something for the break.
I was surprised to have reached 17 out 20 - thought it would be much harder to determine genuine from fake.

...but my boyfriend got 13 out of 20. Could lead to some interesting discussions!! Is there a gender divide in the results here on ProZ?
