What is the Truth About Lies?

We Are All Liars 1 of 10

Although we might not want to admit it, every single one of us is a liar, having started lying by the time we were three years old.

Estimates of how often we lie range from as little as once a day to as much as two to three lies every 10 minutes.

Despite our expertise in telling lies, we are not so good at separating fact from fiction. Even if we know which body language clues to watch for, we can typically only detect about 54% of lies.
