The Science of Lie

During this lesson, I’m going to say three things about myself. You have to choose the one that isn’t true. Ready? Okay. First, I have a machine at home that turns water that isn’t carbonated into water that is.

Two, I’m terrible at the card game. Set, or three, Michael Jackson is my aunt, and he is also my uncle.

Is it that simple? He says, “Yesssssss.” God, I’m terrible at games. music to start the show Lying!

We do it a lot, and we’re better at it than you think. Michael Jackson isn’t my aunt because I’m not stupid. I could have come up with a better lie than that, though. In fact, I was terrible at lying.

There is a sham. There are three lies we tell each other every 10 minutes. Researchers who study lying say that the people who take part in these studies don’t even know that they’re lying. So, why? What is the real reason for lying?

Well, to put human deception into perspective, it’s important to point out that humans aren’t the only people who lie.

Koko, the gorilla who learned sign language in the 1970s, once blamed her pet kitten for taking a sink out of the wall in her room. Bad…

The All Ball was bad. Humans lie all the time, but why do they do it so much? Here on SciShow, I’ve talked about this before: People are first and foremost social animals. We’ve got really big brains, and that’s mostly because we need them for all the talking we do all the time. For humans, having good social interactions is important for a lot of things in our lives.

A lot of complex social structures work well when people lie to keep them going and keep their own interests in mind at the same time.

Because if you keep your social group happy, you’ll get a lot of things like food, more and better sexual partners, and a better social standing. You also know that you don’t make friends and influence people by saying things like that “In fact, that loincloth does make your butt look bigger. I’ve been having sex with your brother while you are out hunting mastodon, so little Glurg over there has been getting a lot of attention.
Your cave nephew is most likely.

“So early humans had to be able to lie and be able to tell when someone was lying because lying isn’t very easy for a brain to do. This led to a kind of evolutionary arms race. People started to get better and better at lying, and better liars got better things, while hopefully keeping their communities in good shape at the same time. Even more, people who were better at telling the truth were less likely to be duped by their friends or get scammed in camel trades.

If you want to be a good liar and know how to tell when someone is lying, you’ve evolved. It was only when society became more advanced that people were like this “Okay, enough with the lies!

“When you live in a tight-knit community, there are a lot of benefits. But when you don’t know for sure that the kids you’re raising are yours, or if the camel you just bought has ever been in an accident, you can’t really enjoy them. This is what happens when there is no one to stop people from telling the truth in public.

There will be a lot of chaos. It was then that groups of people started swinging the hammer down. They started to make the point that God rewards and cares for the truthful and punishes people who tell lies.

if you were thrown into the water tied up with a bag of nails, God was on your side. You were telling the truth.

If not, then you were lying. Oh, medieval European law, how I love you. It doesn’t matter how modern we are, there are still laws that make it against us to lie and to speak freely. It could be for lying in court of law, or for lying about getting a Medal of Honor for service in the military.

Avoid that. Also, because you’re not evil.
For no reason at all. This person is a slut. It’s not good. People are good at it, and their brains want to do it. Some people say we start lying when we are six months old.

People have seen babies fake cry, right? You can tell that they’re crying [fake crying noises] and then they check to see if anyone is coming over to help them. Then they say, “Oh, I’m going to keep crying then!” A lot of scientists think that this is the time when babies start to learn how to be better liars.

Once a week, the kid lies to their mom. I think that’s a little low, but I can understand why. A five out of five for how I did at college

Children these days. There are kids all the time. By the time we’re adults, we’ve become so good at lying that we can even do it to ourselves very well. Trick: Holding two different things in your head at the same time and paying attention to one while not paying attention to the other is how you can tell lies to yourself

People who are good liars can hold a lot of different information in their heads at the same time and keep track of it all.

People who are pathological liars are people who lie, cheat, and manipulate other people all the time. One of the things about people who lie a lot is that they’re very good at lying about themselves. At the time they’re telling the lie, they believe it wholeheartedly, even though it’s not true. There is a real difference between the brains of people who are normal and people who are liars. The prefrontal cortex is the part of the brain at the front of the body that makes the difference.

Most neuroscientists study the gray matter of the brain, which is the part of the brain that actually processes information. It’s also important to note that nearly half our brains are made up of what’s called white matter, which is made up of connective tissues that carry electrical signals from one group of neurons to the next. This means that grey matter is where the brain does all the work, and white matter connects all of the parts together. They found that people who lie have more white matter in their prefrontal cortex than people who don’t lie. This means that pathological liars can make a lot of connections in their brain very quickly.

And that lets them keep all the information they need to keep the lie going, as well as read the person they’re lying to, keep their emotions in check, and most likely believe what they’re saying.

So, why haven’t pathological liars taken over the world? This is why. So, I think they’re going to be the next step in the evolution of humans? Pathological liars have a lot of white matter in their brains, but they also have less gray matter than other people. Gray matter is where critical thinking takes place. “I’m going to tell Jim I used to be a fighter pilot!” That’s what the white matter says. And the gray matter is all gone “Because I used to be a fighter pilot, I could tell Jim that.
“After a while, everyone knows that they’re lying, and they get dumped or fired.

Which isn’t good for the person. For everyone else, it’s good. Then how do we know when we’re being lied to? People who are lying may have changed their voices, or their heart rate went up, or they started to sweat, all things that we do when we’re telling the truth outright. Lie detectors might be able to pick these things up, too.

But a good liar might not show any of these signs. How good you are at lying doesn’t mean that your lies won’t come out through your body language and word choice.

Let’s look at a sentence. People should believe that “I was not the one who farted and had to get out of the theater!” So, do you believe me now?

This is probably not true. In this sentence, I did three things in a row to make you 100% sure that I was who made them leave the movie theater. Among other things, I said “believe me.” Liars will always say that, or “to be completely honest,” or Richard Nixon’s favorite “in all candour,” and they will always say that. The second thing I did was to stop using contractions. Liars often use more formal language when they say they didn’t do something that they did.

As a third thing, I said “that movie theater” instead of “the movie theater.” I was trying to get away from the whole thing. We think of liars as being fidgety, but when we lie, we tend to keep our upper bodies still. More, not less, of us look at each other now.

Not enough to make up for telling a lie. Also, liars do things like shake their heads when they say yes and smile when they’re done telling a bad story.

All of this, the reading of what we say and do, is the future of lie detection. Training law enforcement officers to read people so they can catch them in the act of lying is what this is all about. So, of course, they’re always coming up with new types of gadgets as well. The old lie detector tests will be replaced by eye trackers and MRI brain scans. It’s possible that I’ll tell two truths and one lie on a brain scanner and see how it works. There’s a pretty good chance that everyone already knows how that will turn out.

It’s true. I’m a very bad liar. Is that true? There was a maniacal laugh. Thank you for watching this. It’s not going to be full of lies, we promise.
