Quiz on women's body language

Downside is men did poorly because they focused on clothes and attractiveness. Upside is when shown how far they were off they improved

I tried taking the quiz and got 3 out of 6. I was always on the right side of the spectrum, but was often strongly in disagreement with the level of "sexual interest". Partly, I think, this is because when I see a woman smiling, I interpret it as friendliness and not sexual interest. And I am really, really creeped out by the fact that the researchers and women don't find the woman who is basically hugging herself protectively and pivoting down and away is viewed as only half as rejecting as the woman with the popped hip but grossed out expression. Boo.

Yeah, I found those two that you point out really off, too, and also found it weird and uncomfortable that they were interpreting what looked to me like a pretty basic range of "amenable to social interaction" as 'sexual interest.' IMO, there was nothing specifically speaking to sexual interest in any of those poses - unless you assume that women exist in a binary state of "uninterested in any interaction" and "sexually interested" and there is no such thing as polite interest, platonic interest, openness to a generally social situation without any particular person in mind....

I was terrible at the quiz because I marked everyone on the rejecting end of the spectrum Smile

Yeah, I'm really bothered that there's no "neutral" option.

2 out of 6 because judging the severity is asinine. How I interpret these expressions, in order:
-spoiling for a fight. I'd stay in the perimeter for the dramabomb to go off.
-very inwards-focused. Hugging herself, so perhaps on the spectrum.
-terrible case of RBF, on par with me.
-uncomfortable but too polite to say it. Will probably try to sell me something.
-a goof. Not actually interested, but will have exactly my type of humour.
-frozen in fear, possibly constipated. Also suffers from bad skin caused by lack of pixels.
In short, this test looks dumb, I liked the one where you need to judge the sincerity of a smile better.

Either this quiz/study sucks, or I'm absolutely TERRIBLY at reading women's body language. innocent I got zero right. A lot of these that read as "interested" I thought looked more like they were open to talking/friendly at least. Just by the neutral look on their face and how they're standing tells me they either don't give a shit or DO NOT want to talk. Though the woman hugging herself looked rather odd... obviously she seemed rejecting, but she seemed to be not interested in anyone.

3/6 for me. I tried in my head to replace "interested" with "open to casual conversation," and I still read the three supposedly interested women as being a level or so less interested than the researchers said they were. If I'd chose to read it as, "flirty," only the fifth woman seems like she meets that description.

I got a 3/6.  My incorrect answers were wrong because of severity. Apparently, I'm being rejected slightly more strongly than I thought. Laughing

If I'd chose to read it as, "flirty," only the fifth woman seems like she meets that description.

I thought the same. Even though number 4 seemed pleased to see me, it might not have been sexual.
