Unconscious mind can detect a liar — even when the conscious mind fails — ScienceDaily

Posted on

Science Daily has republish an article from the Association for Psychological Science that states: Unconscious mind can detect a liar — even when the conscious mind fails ..

“When it comes to detecting deceit, your automatic associations may be more accurate than conscious thought in pegging truth-tellers and liars, according to research. The findings suggest 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 may not be all that indicative of an untrustworthy person.”

This Story/Research is not the only one on this topic, so I am including here brief descriptions with direct links to these other findings, as well as the direct link for this specific article.
