    I was reading a book called A whole new mind by Daniel H. Pink and I've got to say it is definitely a great a book to read.

    In one of his chapters he talks about empathy and being able to spot fake smiles. Here is a little quiz that you can do to see how good you are at spotting fake smiles.

    I was able to get 14/20 on the first try.

    I scored 15. I imagined if I was talking to this person in real life, would they come across as genuine or not.

    That was pretty interesting. The vast majority of those giving fake smiles actually told us they were giving fake smiles.
