The scoring of an IQ test is not the same for everyone, because age is used in determining a score. Intelligence quotient is determined by the "intelligence age" (I A) in relation to the chronological age of the person being tested.

Over 140 - Genius or almost genius 120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence 110 - 119 - Superior intelligence 90 - 109 - Average or normal intelligence 80 - 89 - Dullness 70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency in intelligence Under 70 - Feeble-mindedness

Not every smile was created equal. And not every smile is genuine either. There are tight smiles, forced smiles, and awkward smiles, but they aren't the kinds of smiles we are really hoping to see. The most sincere kind of smile is known as the Duchenne smile, which involves contraction of both the major muscles that raise the mouth and the cheeks which forms crow's feet around the eyes.
