I was reading an ebook and the writer quoted that we all lived in the world of deception. I think it is very true. What do you think?

Do you ever encounter a deceiving situation? How do you tackle this situation. Do you instantly recognize the situation or you are being deceived until the end.

I find this ebook is very interesting. It actually shows you how you can recognize if a person is telling a lie.

Lived??? Past tense? Now it is not a world of deception anymore? That would be good news then, right?

I think part of it is true too.. Not all parts of the *world* is of deception , well at least there are still truth around ~~~

Deceiving situation? Can be found in almost everywhere, like fake sales person wan to con you, nice outside smelly inside, faking caring deeds, false news, false hopes, wolves in sheeps costumes, and the lists goes on ~~~

Have to be cautious and observant lo ~~~ Be *alert*

There are many universal ways to determine whether the person is lying or not, but some of them are so good at it that it become hard to detect

My apologies for the grammar error... you got me........ it should be 'live' not 'lived'

Well, besides being con by sales person.. hv u ever been deceived my your colleagues, friends, or even your boss? I think it is very interesting to learn to detect various deceiving techniques.

Anyone interested with this article? I can share with you at no cost... but provided you really keen with this otherwise it is just a waste. Another important remark is only for personal use.

If your mother asked if her new hair color makes her look 10 years younger and if you hate it, do you tell her you hate it? What if your lover asked if you think she's fat and if she is, do you tell her the truth? Imagine her asking you to succumb to a lie detector test to proof your sincerity etc, will you do it gladly? How about parents who use the tooth fairy and santa claus whilst most of us adults know that those figures do not exist. Or do they? ;)

You see, some lies or shall I say "white lies" are not all that bad. It could even be good if done with good intentions.

No soul likes to be lied to but getting all worked up trying to see through another is such an effort. Don't you think. Wanting so desperately to know the hard truths every single minute of your lives could kill you quicker.

Another food for thought. It would be interesting no doubt to detect someone lying to you but it wouldn't be so interesting the other way around would it.

Cheers.

You ain't that sincere.... where is your special gift?

I am actually more keen to know how you all will detect the lies... I am sure you as an employee...did lie to someone, maybe your boss. And you as the superior, sometimes do suspect the dishonesty from your colleagues, staff and subordinates. How do you play the game with them, do u expose the lie immediately or u play along with him.. .pls share your experience.

With practice, you can tell from body language, whether a person is lying or not. You know, the tone of voice, blinking of eyes, etc. I ain't an expert in reading body language, so most times I rely on my gut feelings. :)
