    Default Lies

    Are you good at telling if people are lying? (Though if you aren't, how would you know?)

    it depends on if I can defend the lie by temporarily entertaining a wild hypothesis....

    Sometimes I'll answer questions as if I'm a turing machine that knows nothing..... like that one old dude from the Hitchiker's Guide!

    Yes.
    body gesture, tone, etc. i dont analyze each movement and then conclude that if this person is lying or not. I talk to them for a bit and i make my intuitive guess. Usually its right.

    It's not that i'm good at detecting lies, its just that most people are very bad at it.

    That is until you enter the world of business.

    I love calling people on their lies, and seeing how much the story changes in the process.

    Yup.

    I think most people who are bad at detecting lies are that way because they don't want to think people lie. They don't even consider the possibility.

    No, but I can tell when people are uncomfortable or faking.

    I am not good at spotting it. I know this because i spot em well after the fact. However, I do know what is 95 to 100% accurate.

    I've studied body language quite a bit. I pick up on lying fairly well. However, I notice falsifications more often than not, because the 'facts' don't line up.

    Unless it affects me I'm not usually fussed so donít tend to pay attention to it, when people start contradicting what they've said previously I will notice though along with if they seem nervous when they otherwise shouldn't be.
