That's a very good point, but I was thinking of the story about yourself, not about someone else.
For me the whole world is nuanced. I'll err on the side that it's never so simple. I prefer to be wrong that way than the other way.
... minimal assumptions over maximal, so to speak. Assumptions make the world simpler. I try not to make them. I'm okay with keeping the world complex.
A good attitude to have.I'm regretting using the word honest and not innocent, in the question though. :(
Then you just need to find something to trip them up, I suppose.
indeed... this is where lies rarely get past the police, because they are expert in laying traps and in general life it also helps to learn to recognize the signs. such as eye movements or the way a statement is worded, like which of these two appologies is more genuineim sorry if i upset youim sorry that i upset youone word difference can say a lot about how genuine someone is. the first one being a get out clause whilst the second indicates a genuine understanding that they did something wrong
@update works either way ;)
It's a very popular framing, the nonpology. It puts the blame on the victim.
you see it loads in the house of commons. jacob rees mogg employed it just last week after his hateful grenfell comments
He always struck me as a slimy type.
thanks for mho
That's very true, but someone changing stories is a good tell that they're lying. Fortunately, not many people are that good at lying.
But then again, we don't really know how many good liars there are, because they're hard to spot.
We need one of these:"The Truth Machine (1996) is a science fiction novel by James L. Halperin about a genius who invents an infallible lie detector. Soon, every citizen must pass a thorough test under a Truth Machine to get a job or receive any sort of license. Eventually, people begin wearing them all the time, thus eliminating dishonesty in all parts of human interaction, and eliminating crime, terrorism and a great deal of general social problems."I remember it as being a good book. You can download it for free here (MS doc): https://coins.ha.com/c/content.zx?content=ttm
Interesting. Have you seen the movie "The Invention Of Lying"? It's a rather silly comedy movie, but the idea is quite interesting too, it's a parallel world where humans never develeoped the ability to lie.
Yes, it's with whatsisname, the annoying comedian with the vampire teeth. I like the thing he invented! :)
Ricky Gervais! Haha
Thanks! I kept wanting to say Vic Reeves, although I knew it wasn't him.
