Science catches up to common wisdom. Nancy Blink-Blink Pelosi, you’ve been exposed:
Liars are exposed by blinking
The best way to spot a liar is to look them in the eyes, according to scientists who say the number of times a person blinks will show if they are speaking the truth.
Liars blink less frequently than normal during the lie, and then speed up to around eight times faster than usual afterwards.
The findings, reported in the Journal of Non-verbal Behaviour, means that blink rates could soon be used by professionals, such as the police and security forces, to tell when someone is being duplicitous.
Dr Sharon Leal, co-author of the study at Portsmouth University, said: “It is striking what different patterns in eye blinks emerged for liars and truth tellers.
Yeah, no kidding.
