Lying, in whatever capacity, is something that everyone can admit to doing at least every once in a while. In ETonline's exclusive clip of the National Geographic series Brain Games, we discover a way to detect a lie when we see, not hear, one.
The season finale of Brain Games examines, through a series of games and experiments, why we lie, how often we lie, and what happens in the brain that permits us to not tell the truth.
The game we see in the featured clip is comprised of deception specialist Apollo Robbins playing a card-picking game with a few strangers. As he attempts to guess the players' cards through "mindreading," Robbins reveals a technique that even a layman could try.
The premise of the card-guessing game is that Robbins has instructed the players to only respond "no" to his questions about their potential card, ultimately forcing them to fib about their card.
