You Cannot Tell Spot a Lie 0

At Psychology Today Blogs, Christian Hart examines why this is so. Here’s a bit:

If the research suggests that people tend to behave differently when they are lying, why are the rates of accurate detection so pitiful? One possibility is that people are simply looking for the wrong cues when trying to detect liars.

The Lies of the Land 0

At Psychology Today Blogs, Christian Hart investigates the personality traits of those who lie. Here’s a bit:

Who are these prolific liars? Personality is one variable that accounts for who lies the most. In one study I conducted with Haylie Jones, we found that people who are high in Machiavellianism (people who are manipulative, unemotional, and indifferent to morality) tend to tell significantly more lies that a typical person. In another study, I found that the prolific liars tend to be people who have low self-esteem (Hart, Lemon, Curtis, & Griffith, in press). Additionally, they tend to be low in conscientiousness and openness to new experiences.
