Are you good at spotting a lie?

How good are you a spotting a liar? Most people think they are above average, but the research clearly shows that we are no better than 50–50 — a flip of the coin, pure chance — at detecting lies. We may be better at spotting the lies of someone we know well, at least we’d like to be, but again there’s no evidence to support this, just a pious wish.
