So you know how sixpenceee does these really nifty posts about cool websites? I thought I’d give that a try. Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.
How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!
18 out of 36
the average is 26
29 out of 36.
I *am* observant!!! /victory screech!!/
I got 30 out of 36. I have a few problems with this test, though. All of the faces are white, and almost all of the feminine faces look exactly the same. There’s a wide variety of ages, expressions, and types of photographs for the masculine faces, but all the fem ones look like 90s glamor shots. The most they changed was what direction they were looking in. Their options were also shit like “desire,” “fantasizing,” and “flirtatious.”
There’s also the fact that the different options influences how you read the expression. Without the suggestions, you might read the expression as something completely different.
It’s an interesting test, but I don’t think it’s a particularly effective way to study how people recognize emotions from eyes.
Those people who constantly reblog your stuff but you never really talk:
BOND is a tiny touch module. It can be a pendant or a bracelet but it comes in pairs. You keep one and you give one to a friend. When you touch it, your friend feels it. No matter where they are on the planet. We don’t do tweets, we do tickles.
we need this
gonna put it on my dick
THAT IS NOT THE INTENDED USE SIR
This is actually so cool because some people wear bracelets and necklaces and things as comfort items. I used to wear a necklace from my grandma to remind me of her and I would touch the pendant on it when I was feeling down or stressed. So imagine (if she were still alive), every time I did that she would know I was thinking of her, drawing strength from her.
And then imagine poking it and the other person feels it and pokes back and you end up in a real life facebook poke war.
I would send messages in morse code
magine you and your best friend have one. When the friend dies, he/she is buried with the bracelet. A couple weeks later, you feel someone touch your wrist.
Well this escalated from cool tech to perverted hilarity to something heartfelt then finally something out a creepypasta
I want one

Learning to love and accept yourself for who you are is not an easy thing to do. But at the end of the day I must love myself before anyone else can love me. Learning how to do this was hard, but it has made all the difference.
