How Good Are You at Detecting Deception?

Did you know that most people fare only slightly better than a coin toss at detecting deception? This includes professionals such as Psychologists, Judges, the Secret Service and even Police Officers. As a matter of fact, most people are much better at lying than they are at spotting lies. (Vrij, 2000).
