I want you to lie to me

a favorI need your help. I’m doing some new research for our Citizen Science arm of Science of People. I’m doing a deep dive on human lie detection 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.

<—The picture of the dog is supposed to be symbolic of me begging you for a favor. I’m also hoping a cute dog will soften you up = )

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!!!
