Video: How to spot a lie

No, the answer is not to look and see if Barack Obama’s lips are moving, although that’s a sure-fire method, too. The technique described in the video that follows was devised by researchers at Cornell University, who determined that more people appear to lie when they are speaking to you live over the phone versus when they commit their thoughts to writing via email.

According to the group’s study, people are prone to twisting the truth 37% of the time when communicating by phone but only 14% of the time when emailing.

No wonder Lois Lerner and the Obama administration are working so hard to suppress her emails!
