Test how well you empathize with others

The Reading the Mind in the Eyes test was created by neuropsychologist Simon Baron-Cohen. Images of eyes are shown and you have to select the word the best describes what the person is thinking. The average score is 26 out of 36, so most people are pretty decent at understanding what others think. So test yourself and see how you do!
