TED Talk: How to spot a liar

Almost forgot about my How to tell when your boss is lying post.

This attracted me to this TED Talk: “Koko once blamed her pet kitten for ripping a sink of the wall.”

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.

Some interesting things:

    • We lie more to strangers than coworkers.
    • Extroverts lie more than introverts.
    • Men lie 8x more about themselves than other people.
    • Women lie more to protect other people.
