I want you to lie to me

I need your help. I’m doing research for our lie detection database. I’m doing a deep dive on the science of deception and I need some sample videos of people lying. I know this is a big ask, so if you are willing I would be extremely grateful.

Here’s what’s up:

1. I send you an assignment–like answer the following question and then give me two honest answers and one lying answer.

2. You film yourself answering the question and tell me which one is the lie in a secret email so I can’t see it.

3. I will then dissect it for red flags which I’m using for my research.

Of course, I will then send you back what your lying tells are–don’t you want to know what you do when you lie?!

This would also be extremely helpful in my research because I need some videos to work with.

If you are interested please email me: I would be very grateful!

    I will help any way you want. 2 truthful and 1 lie. As many as you need. I will even get my martial arts students into it if you like. I teach them to move deceptively so things look accidental. They could be a challenge for you… Sound like fun to you?
    I really love this stuff!!!
