The Language of Lying [5:41]


We lie between 10 and 200 times a day, as well as spend a lot of energy trying to detect when others are lying.  This video focuses mainly on communication science and linguistic text analysis, i.e. what liars tend to do and say as they lie.  For instance, most liars tend to construct things in simple terms, but also have convoluted sentence structure.  Watching this video will provide practical lessons in how to detect lies during conversations.

  • Is it important to make this information publicly known?  Or will that just create better liars?
  • What would the world be like if we could easily tell when someone is lying?

Keywords: life skills, lying, character, virtue, decode, deception, psychology, subconscious
