✳ Spot The Liar
On any given day we're lied to from 10 to 200 times and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows how to recognize deception. Men lie 8 times more about themselves than other people; women lie to protect other people. In college, moms are lied to by their kids 1 out of every 5 interactions. "Lying is an attempt to bridge that gap -- to connect our wishes and our fantasies about who we wish we were, who we could be, with what we're really like." Watch Pamela here.
