Becoming a Human Lie Detector

Do you know how to detect when someone is lying to you?

Because our noses don’t grow and our pants don’t immediately burst into flames when we tell a lie,  it can be tough to tell whether or not someone is lying to you. During an investigation interview, it’s important to detect when someone is lying to you, because you need to get the facts in order to conduct a proper investigation.

In this TED Talk video, author Pamela Meyer talks about the various ways to detect a lie and why we should transition from being a lie spotter to a truth seeker. Meyer discusses the implications of lying and deceit, and how everything from using formal language to distancing themselves from the person involved can be signs of a lie.
