What if we could tell when people were lying?


Honesty is the best policy, right? Well, maybe not…

Can you imagine what it would be like if we had to tell the absolute truth all the time? And if we had to HEAR the absolute truth? It sounds pretty brutal to me!

This lesson is based on an article by the BBC: What if we knew when people were lying?

I hope you find this lesson interesting. Please feel free to lie to me if you don’t!

Happy studying,
