There's A Machine That Can Tell Whether You Have Resting Bitchface Or Not

Who can tell if these people have RBF: you or the machine?

by ,

We had a group of men and women get their faces scanned to see if they have resting bitchface, or RBF for short. THIS IS REAL SCIENCE, YOU GUYS, THIS ISN'T HOT GOSS!

If you don't know what resting bitchface is, here's a prime example:

K. Stew has a pretty bad case of RBF. It doesn't mean that she's a bitch, though! It just means when in a resting state, her face is full of contempt.

Turns out, Abbe Macbeth from Noldus Information Technology has face reader software that "automatically analyzes facial emotion." Basically, it can pick up on RBF in both men and women. YES, MEN HAVE RBF TOO!

So, naturally we brought some people in to see if they have the notorious bitchface or not.

Let's see if we can read RBF better than the machine:

  1. Do you think this person has RBF?
