Can You Read People’s Emotions Through Their Eyes?

In category Communication Theory, In The News

Well, another 2+2=57 test for empathy and mind-reading.

Have a look and see if you can match the emotion to the photos at http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/10/03/well-quiz-the-mind-behind-the-eyes/

At 31 out of 36, I got above average. However, while I was doing it I could see what the expected answer was, I didn’t believe that the emotion. So what does that mean?

Spoiler alert: I did get the two women fantasizing wrong.  I guess I don’t have sufficient experience of watching women fantasizing or pretending to be fantasizing.
