walstib: Everyone in King's Landing is a liar, and they are all better at it than you.


This is almost certainly true. :(

GungFu: I'm the best liar on Fark. I've won the best Total Fark Lying Contest for the last 3 years. And I have the photos to prove it.

doofusss:  Sicilians are great liars. The best in the world. I'm Sicilian. My father was the world heavy-weight champion of Sicilian liars. From growing up with him I learned the pantomime. There are seventeen different things a guy can do when he lies to give himself away. A guys got seventeen pantomimes. A woman's got twenty, but a guy's got seventeen... but, if you know them, like you know your own face, they beat lie detectors all to hell. Now, what we got here is a little game of show and tell. You don't wanna show me nothin', but you're tellin me everything. I know you know where they are, so tell me before I do some damage you won't walk away from.

Probably one of the greatest scenes in movie history right there...Clarence Worley's daddy and Blue Lou Boyle's associate, act their asses off.

Honestly.

Son of Thunder: I'm a social psychologist, and this kind of stuff is what got me interested in the field in the first place. Sadly, though, there is no such thing as a bag of psychological tricks that will allow the user to do a Sherlock Scan, or become a "human lie detector".

These kinds of research findings are true when you can do precise measurements in controlled circumstances (e.g., Group A blinked 5% slower than Group B), but when we test peoples accuracy IRL, they are typically no better than chance. If we run our participants through a training program, they still end up no better than chance at detecting liars (in one study, having people watch Lie to Me actually made them WORSE due to increase in false positives).

What works best IRL is still the classic: check their statements against reality.


So much this. Even with the small amount of knowledge I have with a student, with a security specialisation, the facts are the biggest indicator of lies. Though if the lies are well practiced, and a persona is put on, the lies can be almost impossible to find unless you are always on your guard for it. Security auditors are master liars, but it takes them preparation and well constructed lies built upon scraps of truth.

Bah, this all comes down to 'Are they thinking before they speak? They're probably lying!'  I always think before I speak because more thinking and less speaking would work better for almost everyone.

Fletcher Reede:Hi. New in the building?
Woman in the Elevator:Oh yeah, I just moved in Monday.
Fletcher Reede:Oh! You like it so far?
Woman in the Elevator:Mmmhmm. Everybody's been real nice.
Fletcher Reede:Well, It's cause you have big jugs. I mean your boobs are huge! I mean, I wanna squeeze em'! OH! Mama! [smoochie noises]

Definately one of my favorites, was surprised that no one else ref: it. Walken also had a fantastic scene in The Deer Hunter.

Increasing the load probably only works for fresh lies. Older ones are sometimes easier to remember than the truth.

LadySusan: Silentbob768768: Silentbob768768: starsrift: I believe everyone in this thread.
I'm pretty gullible. In fact, if you turn to 'gullible' in the dictionary, it'll say "see starsrift(n.)".

I did not! You liar!

It* even

Sure, like you even own a dictionary. I keep meticulous records of  everyone I've sold to and you are not on my list.


Hey! I spent nine long years hand copying the dictionary one page at a time from the library! My parents couldn't afford one because of people like you! Sure its missing a few words here and there but i assure you it is perfectly cromulent!

I haven't seen the Deer Hunter in decades, Do you mean the Russian roulette scene?

Mugato: The problem with this article is that it seems to say that everything that people look for in a liar are actually things people do when they aren't lying. So if you try to do the the things that non-liars do, people will think you're lying.


If you're not lying you don't need to pay any attention to what liars and non-liars do. Just be yourself.
