    Default Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (recognizing others' emotions)

    Which (sub)types would score highest or higher than average (at recognizing others' emotions)? Wouldn't ILE-Ti and SLE-Ti score higher than average on the Reading the Mind in the Eyes test? Wouldn't LIE score lower than average?

    Are they reading thoughts, emotions, or events?

    You can check out this thread. If you bump it maybe some self typed SLE, LIE or ILE, who haven't taken it, will take it. Not sure if it will help. Reading people's emotions is a skill that you can get better at.

    I think emotions expressed during events are the easiest to read. At a funeral most people will recognize sadness if it is being expressed. If at a wedding most people will recognize joy if it is being expressed.

    That makes sense. You are primed to expect certain emotions in those events and notice whether they are being expressed, or even more sharply, if they are not being expressed.

    I can't speak for other LIE's, but I did horribly badly on this test. Much lower than average.

    @Disturbed I scored lower than average. Possibly far lower when I was younger. I just retook it and replied in the thread. I am also a woman, so there goes that theory of yours, lol. I could be an anomaly though, and some people have typed me LIE here mind you (but they are wrong).

    I noted in my post that it is likely in part cultural. When I look for others' emotions, I get information from many things, and I think I'm very good at this. Context, tone of voice, body language, content of expression, face flush, are they sweating or tremoring, etc. I don't usually focus on the eyes I think.

    I've taken similar tests and did really bad. What I think the emotion should be isn't even in the list of multiple choice answers.

    LOL. This is how I feel. I'm like ??? I can't even imagine the people having different emotions from what I chose or from what's not even on the test. Mb F type my ass.

    I had 32/35 or something like that. It is high average-ish. Heh that is when options were given and I had time to reflect. Otherwise I think finding words for it might be challenging.
