Learn Something New: How to Spot a Liar

We recently started a new weekly series called Learn Something New! Up this Sunday? A lesson in lying and how to spot those using deceptive techniques.

Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deception, gave a powerful Ted Talk where she confronted the liars in the room. Surprise, it was everyone! That’s right – we’re all liars. And though the reasons we lie may vary, we’re all guilty of telling fibs every now and then. In her chat, Meyer explains the reasons we lie, who tends to lie the most, and how we can be more alert to when the truth is being shielded from us.
