Are you an eye expressions master?

A little bit of a fun post today!

I’m going to post some pictures of people’s eyes (I hope I don’t get murdered for copyright or something…?) and you need to guess (from the list) what expression they’re showing?

Sound simple? Think again. We like to think we’re amazing at interpreting faces, but we’re not as good as we first expect.
See how well you do – and don’t cheat!

1a) playful   b) comforting  c) irritated  d) bored

2a) joking   b) flustered   c) desire   d) convinced

3a) joking   b) insisting   c) amused   d) relaxed

4a) apologetic   b) friendly   c) uneasy   d) dispirited

5a) caution   b) insisting   c) bored   d) aghast

6a) terrified   b) amused   c) regretful   d) flirtatious

7a) disappointed   b) irritated   c) depressed   d) accusing

8a) decisive   b) amused   c) aghast   d) bored

9a) alarmed   b) shy   c) hostile   d) anxious

10a) serious   b) ashamed   c) bewildered   d) alarmed

11a) aghast   b) fantasizing   c) impatient   d) alarmed

12a) scared   b) anticipating   c) threatening   d) shy

13a) dominant    b) sceptical   c) friendly    d) scared

14a) embarrassed   b) serious   c) guilty   d) concern

15a) puzzled   b) nervous   c) insisting   d) contemplative

Ready for the answers?
Make sure you’ve given an answer for every one – if you haven’t, just pick what feels “right”.

1 – playful; 2 – desire; 3 – insisting; 4 – uneasy; 5 – caution; 6 – regretful; 7 – accusing; 8 – decisive; 9 – hostile; 10 – serious; 11 – fantasizing; 12 – anticipating; 13 – friendly; 14 – concern; 15 – nervous.

How well did you do?

The average is around 12-15, so if you did worse than this, your mastery of the eyes is yet to be realised!
