    Those images looks like someone has photocopied a newspaper article then photocopied the photocopy etc for about 50 times then given it you to look at.

    30/36. One of the pictures you could only see a tiny bit of the eye, the rest was dark!

    27. Not bad. I was expecting hight to be honest. I thought I was quite good at reading people.

    But I certainly wouldn't turn my back on any of the sets of eyes in the photos, or lend them money.

    30 think I had the opposite problem to @AMLightfoot, easier to read women's than men's.

    At the risk of sounding controversial, perhaps it's a gender thing?

    I don't know much about it but as a heterosexual female perhaps I'm naturally 'geared' towards picking up visual clues from Male faces?

    It would be interesting to poll it to see whether there is a gender and sexual orientation link to how accurately we read visual clues from both genders?

    Perhaps sexual orientation has nothing to do with it and there are familial or social connotations? Perhaps a man growing up with sisters might be better at reading female faces? I grew up with a sister and am better at males so maybe it's the opposite? Perhaps social group has a lot to do with it - I don't make friends with women easily. My social group is predominantly men so maybe that exposure makes it easier for me?

    I don't know but I think it would be interesting to examine patterns across the people taking the test.
