Take this test made by Harvard University and post your results. The following is mine.

Such tests can be found within EQ tests - I took one a few months back for a senior sales role (reading the person opposite being integral to a successful sales process blah etc). I thought I did well - nailed it. In the 'reading emotion' part though I scored precisely zero, and overall within the bottom 10%, i.e. complete emotional retard. Social Intelligence I guess is a rough term for effectively being street wise - reading situations etc.
Kind of a silly test. The rest of the face is important too, and the options they give have significant overlap. I mean, people can't even agree on whether there is more than four emotions, yet there are at least a dozen options on this test. I found the tests developed by Dr Paul Ekman to be more useful.
Also, this test did not show a main effect of gender. If we were to repeat the experiment using whole-body nonverbal communication I suspect that the results would differ.
