Art of Lying in just 20 minutes

Now you don’t have to rehearse for hours before lying to someone. You can be a master in the art of lying in just 20 minutes. Yes, we are not lying!

According to a new study, liars can be as good as truth-tellers after only 20 minutes of practice and it will be almost impossible to detect them.

The research based at the Northwestern University has found that a short training session can help the liars to maintain their fake stand, making it impossible to differentiate them with truth-tellers.

The researchers also claimed that people become more natural as they speak, tripping up on their truths just as much as their lies.

According to research co-author, Xioaqing Hu, the difference between truth and lying has been eliminated after the training.
