Psychologists have discovered that the average person is told between 10 to 200 lies a day, including you!
It makes you wonder just how skilled you are at detecting deception and liars, right?
Imagine the personal gains one could accomplish if they were able to recognize lies and people who lie to them.
Luckily for us, Carol Kinsey Goman, an authority on the link between effective leadership and nonverbal communication is helping us to recognize liars by participating in our honesty awareness campaign.
But before you read her article, answer quick 3 self dicovery questions on how good you are at spotting liars (it only takes 15 seconds and it’s anonymous). Carol’s article link will be provided at the end of the questions. Do it and then read her article, it can make a difference in your life.
It will be fascinating to see the answers statistics. I will share them once we have enough data.
And please share the questions link and this article as much as possible in your network so we can collect more data (so far results are quite surprising). Also I would love to hear your comments and experience about spotting liars.
Thank you for reading my post. As the On the Road to Honesty awareness campaign is getting started, I will regularly write about lies, truth, (kind) honesty, deception and will host other experts & writers articles. Feel free to connect via Twitter, and Linkedin.
Also, thank you David Fletcher for the unique cartoon on how to spot a liar created for our campaign and for this article.
