今日小常識

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.

你是否能透過他人的眼神看出他在說謊話?很多心理學家認為當一個人眼睛向右上方看時更可能說謊話,而當眼神在快速的向左上方看時是誠實的。但是來自英國愛丁堡大學和赫特福德大學的研究人員說此觀點沒有任何科學依據。
