Our postfact, postruth times call for a better understanding of lies and lying — until, that is, we wholeheartedly reject a culture that rewards deceit.
So, I’m adding this infographic to our resource center. “The Psychology of Lying” brings together a few handy bites of information: what happens in the brain when we lie; eye movements and other physiological markers when we lie; how often we lie (to our mothers). The science behind human deception is complex, nuanced and evolving, so I’d recommend using this infographic more for fun.
