We hear anywhere from 10 to 200 lies a day. And although we’ve spent much of our history coming up with ways to detect these lies by tracking physiological changes in their tellers, these methods have proved unreliable.

    Wow. I saw myself in the video. I just told a lie earlier in the week to avoid a social engagement. And it hit everyone of the indicators they list. EMBARRASSING. 😥
