Someone is telling a lie if they speak while moving the eye ball repeatedly up and to the right. Considered to be honest when talking with a movement of the eyeball upwards and then to the left, this is as quoted by Fox News.
Are these understandings accurate?
A recent study published in the ‘Public Library of Science ONE journal’ reveals that the understanding is not at all scientifically proven. Eye movement is not at all related to honesty or deceit.
In the study, a number of British researchers examined the link between eye movements and the level of honesty with a variety of methods. One that they did was tracking eye movements when the respondent speaks a lie, and when talking about the truth.
Dr Caroline Watt, author of the study from the University of Edinburgh, said, “Most people believe that certain eye movements are a sign of lying, even taught in the organization of training courses, but our study does not support the idea. It’s time to abandon this approach to detect lies.”Tagged with: detect lies, eye movement lie, know lies, tell lies,
