Body language can give away what you’re feeling (like a “tell” in poker). This, in turn, can make you feel a certain way. The ability to read another person’s body language for hidden clues or secret intentions is one of those dark arts we’d all like to master, but rarely get to actually put into practice outside of the negotiation room or card table.
Recently, a new study from the University of Chicago filmed subjects who were told to either lie or tell the truth when answering questions. Luckily for us, The New York Times took the clips and turned it into an interactive quiz where you can test your own body language reading skills and perceptiveness.
