Living with Lies

Want to learn how to spot liars?

I am now hooked to this new Fox show called Lie to Me, starring Tim Roth. The show is based on studies made by Dr Paul Ekman on taxonomizing human  facial expressions. Known as the  Facial Action Coding System or FACS,  it is a standard  used to systematically categorize  the physical expression of emotions.

Law enforcement people, psychologists and business institutions utilize  the system, to expose criminals, help patients struggles with their emotional or psychological conditions and help sales people deal better with customers or clients.

It's funny but I think I have an innate ability to detect a lie from a truth.
