We lie every day but it turns out there's an easy tell. It takes much longer to lie when texting, according to a new study.
Researchers at Brigham Young University found that texts containing a lie took longer to compose compared to truthful texts. They found that through exact measurement and modeling they could predict if an SMS was a lie. "Unfortunately, humans are terrible at detecting deception. We’re creating methods to correct that," BYU researcher Tom Meservy said.
The study looked at 100 subjects who answered 30 questions in an IM/texting style conversation ona computer. The subjects took 10 percent longer writing their lies and took longer to revise them too.
