Did you know we're lied to over 200 times per day?

Did You Know Were Lied To Over 200 Times Per Day V2

Today, we're going to discuss some exploratory steps into lie detection and set you on the path to becoming a human lie detector.

This is a really in-depth topic and we certainly can't go as deep as I'd like to, but I'd love to give you enough steps, strategies and insights so that you can start to detect when people are lying to you.

If you want to go deeper in to this topic I have a self-assessment tool which will allow you to discover just how good YOU are at lie detection. I have also written some articles in which we go all the way down and DO actually turn you into a human lie detector. If you'd to access either or both of those resources, just click here to send me an email and I'll shoot them right back .

In this post we're just going to touch on the high points but below you'll also find a link to a radio interview that will provide you with much more information.

So, let's get started.

Why are we lied to?

We are lied to as many as 200 times a day for all sorts of different reasons.

  • People lie so as to not to hurt us
  • People lie to make us feel better
  • People lie to make themselves look better
  • People lie for a mixture of the above reasons

There are many reasons why people lie and many of them are what we call ‘white lies’. However, irrespective of the reason - a lie is a lie - and we can experience them up to TWO HUNDRED times a day.

How can we tell if we're being lied to?

To detect those lies and to be able to become a human lie detector, we need to look at three things that give them away:

1. First of all, facial expressions,

2. Then the ‘nonverbal’ —in other words— body language and what our body does.

3. The third thing we look at is statement analysis, what the person is actually saying and how they're saying it, as well as the way they say it.
