Some of them seemed close calls, like "Upset" vs "Annoyed."

31, but on three of the ones I missed I was torn between the right answer and the one I picked. I think years of doing Sneak Thief helped. I've gotten to the point where I can almost do sneak thief without the hidden secret.

Accurately interpreting an emotions in a quiz like this is a LOT different from doing it live and in the context of a particular social situation. So I wouldn't take "tests" like these too seriously.

That said, I got them all correct. (Of course I cheated, but I'm very good at that. It's what I do.)

Oops 29 but as Seńor cassidy said, these sort of tests are not related at all to the ay we work in the eal world.
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

31, after a difficult day.

This test reminded me of an interesting idea/finding in psychology - that delusions might arise as a result of skills that are over-developed for tasks like this. It is possible that over sensitivity to other people's disingenuous communications might provoke paranoid history.

I concur with Greg and Bob, I got 31... Was between my answer and the correct one 3 times... I couldn't do this live as expressions are rarely still for one to observe.

While eyes may be "mirrors of the soul," lip movement in conjunction with eyes would allow most to get these all correct. Not sure of any practical value to this test.

I did this when I saw it over on Facebook last week,
I got 32, and was 50/50 on a couple I got wrong.

But I don't think in real life, when the chips are down, I would be confident enough to rely on it.

I probably got lucky on quite a few of them.
