A British research team has conducted an intriguing psychological experiment based on the ability to deceive others and the capacity to detect lies. Aiming to find out if there is a connection between the two, the team recruited 51 participants, 27 of whom women, and asked them to speak their mind on a social issue in front of the group. The participants’ real opinion was previously recorded and they were shown whether to tell the truth or lie by the cards handed out to them at each round. Results showed that the ones who told the best lies were better at spotting when others didn’t tell the truth. However, the research wasn’t able to identify the psychological process lying under a person’s ability to lie skillfully or spot liars and it remains an important aim for deception survey.
