Unconscious Mind Can Detect a Liar When Conscious Mind Fails

Written by Featured Organization on Tuesday, 01 April 2014 13:52.

TRAVIS HOLT editor Unconscious Mind Can Detect a Liar When it comes to detecting deceit, your unconscious instincts may be more accurate than conscious thought when making judgments about others, according to research by Leanne ten Brinke, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. In the paper, “Some Evidence for Unconscious Lie Detection,” published in Psychological Science (online March 21, 2014), the authors find that conscious awareness may hinder our ability to detect whether someone is lying, perhaps because we tend to seek out behaviors that are supposedly stereotypical of liars, like averted eyes or fidgeting. But those behaviors are not indicative of an untruthful person.

John Travis holt brother keeper It was all-to-easy for many to overlook the tragedy occurred Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 6:20 pm in Brooklyn, NY -- Kahton Anderson shot and killed Angel Rojas. Spirit And Blood. On that tragic day, Angel Rojas was doing what he had done every day since arriving from the Dominic Republic – riding the bus to work to support the needs of his family. Unfortunately for Angel and his family, a 14 year old African-American gang member shot and fatally wounded him bringing undesired sentimentality to his surname. Mr. Rojas – or “red” as in the color of his blood – was killed as his body fluid was senselessly spilled on the B15 bus in Brooklyn.
