I got only 7 out of 10 right.

That's probably better than the "experts." For those too lazy to read the linked article, funding for TSA body language training has been cut because research shows that it's bs. Law enforcement personnel THINK they can tell whether or not someone is lying, but objective testing proves they cannot.

Not a huge surprise. Old time police detectives have problem with this all the time. confirmation bias can be a dangerous thing, they remember the "hits" and not the "misses" and over the years they starts to trust their own "instinct" more and more.

eta: 7/10

6/10

I answered that 8/10 were lying, instead of only 4.

Proved one thing I already knew:  I am a very suspicious person.

7/10

10/10 woo-hoo!

8 out of 10 right.

Who cares, he folded, take the pot.

7/10
The three I got wrong were telling the truth, so I did catch all the liars.
On the other hand, since there were only 4 liars, I falsely accused 1/2 of the truth-tellers.

Curious to see mosa's score on this since she doesn't have the visual cues.
