How Well Can You Read Others’ Emotions? [The Eye Test]

I can be awkward in social situations, but I like to think that I’m sensitive to people’s moods and emotions. So when I happened upon this “mind behind the eyes” test by University of Cambridge professor Simon Baron-Cohen, I expected myself to score well…

And I did.  :-)  I got 33/36, which indicates that I am “quite good at understanding someone’s mental state based on facial cues.”

I’m sure the test isn’t without its faults — after all, the eyes aren’t the only indicators to one’s emotion — but it was fun and informative nonetheless. If you have a few minutes to spare, try it out, and let me know how you scored!
