今日小常识

Can you tell when someone is lying by looking at their eyes? Many psychologists think when a person looks up to their right they are likely to be telling a lie and when they look quickly up to their left they are being honest. But researchers from Edinburgh University and Hertfordshire University say there is no scientific evidence for this.

你是否能透过他人的眼神看出他在说谎话?很多心理学家认为当一个人眼睛向右上方看时更可能说谎话,而当眼神在快速的向左上方看时是诚实的。但是来自英国爱丁堡大学和赫特福德大学的研究人员说此观点没有任何科学依据。
