Lying? Your face will give you away: study

Reuters Life!:

Liars might think they are good at covering up their deceit but a new Canadian study shows there’s one thing they can’t control that will give them away — flashes of emotion in their faces.

Researchers at Dalhousie University’s Forensic Psychology Lab in Halifax conducted the first detailed study on the secrets revealed when people put on a false face or inhibit various emotions, and found their faces told the truth.

But instead of clues like shifty eyes or sweaty brows, their expression would crack briefly, allowing displays of true emotions such as happiness, sadness, disgust and fear to come through.

I just put on the stone-face at all times to conceal all types of emotion. Works great. This is an interesting article… I’m going to be REAL observant now Peter when we talk about your country singing career and how excited you said you were… Lies!



  1. Hahha you need to lay off the haterade. I gotta watch your face when you say you’re gonna actually make a post on here once a month. Haha! Ok sorry.

    Speaking of my country career, lemme know if you’re back early on Sunday, if you are you should come watch me play at that blues club in SJ.
