On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and "hotspots" used by those trained to recognize deception -- and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

You know whoever watches that video, will be lie spotting, I will. :P

Duck will know as myself in the game of poker at live casino's you look for signs constantly to see who lies through body language which I must admit is difficult against strangers, but the more you play against your opponents the easier it gets to spot a lie.. It's a bit like everyday life in a way I feel, as the more you get to know someone the easier it get's to notice a lie..

Now for the next episode how to spot a :bullshit: ter online. :o

Can You Spot an Online Liar?

Finding the truth in a Web of deceit


You can’t believe everything you read on the Internet, but is there any reliable way to sort the fact from the fiction? Online dating profiles represent a difficult-to-crack mix of truth, exaggeration, and pure fabrication, and a new study reported in the Journal of Communication finds that we are terrible at figuring out which is which. But all hope is not lost: Ignore your gut and trust the science. You’ll be calling Tommy99’s bluff in no time.
Gut: What We Look For

“You should be tall; you should like dogs; you know who you are”—daters who use a high number of “you” pronouns are perceived as untrustworthy. Using “we” makes a reader more likely to identify with the profile’s author, notes Catalina Toma, the study’s lead author. Vagueness is suspect (are you glossing over the facts?), and “articles are a sign of concreteness in language,” says Toma. We’re more likely to believe a profile that uses plenty of a’s and the’s. When people go on and on about their parents, or their cooking ability, or pretty much anything at all, it makes us want to trust them. “The more we feel we know about a person, the more we like them,” says Toma.


Science: What We Should Look For

Liars are not eager to take ownership of their lies. To distance themselves, they use the pronoun “I” less often than honest people. Beware of smoke and mirrors. Someone who lies about their appearance will distract a reader from their embellishments by talking about their achievements instead. The act of lying is more cognitively difficult than telling the truth, so profiles riddled with deception tend to be shorter. “Liars produce fewer total words,” says Toma, “so they don’t contradict themselves.”
