I think it would be more fun and personally rewarding (albeit probably immoral) to get away with any lie you told. Identifying any lie you hear will most likely only teach you things you wish you didn't know.

Knowing every lie, like Norval said, would lead to more hurt than not. Plus, just because you're aware of the lie, doesn't mean you get told the truthβ€”that'd be infuriating. I'd take the get-away-with-it ability and rarely use it (besides if I'm planning a surprise or something).

I honestly agree with you. If I tell a lie, it would lead to more hurt for me than good. And it would also be frustrating to be aware that when I tell a lie it doesn't mean I told the truth it means I'm hurting myself when I lie to people.Β

Brilliant question ... I agree with the commentary that you'd expose yourself to some hurt by being able to detect lies, but I think you'd figure out how to not let little white lies bother you in context. Since everyone probably lies a little bit even if it's to simplify a story, I think you could tone those out and then be able to use the 'power' for when it mattered most. I think this would allow you to create more good by asking probing questions to get the bottom of answers when it mattered most. With great power, comes great responsibility.

I agree with that too. You do expose yourself to hurt when you lie. But I would rather be able to get away with lying. Because not only am I hurting myself, I am hurting other people for detecting their lies. I would rather be able to get away with lying.

Well if I had the capabilty to detect lies, I'd know that Trump & Co. are 100% full of excrement.

Now, on the other hand, what do we gain by lying? Oh sure our parent's told 'littlle white lies' to us, yet in reallity, they were full of $#*& !

Β Agreed. If I had the ability to detect lies, I would be able to detect that Joe Biden is always telling people $#*&! I would be able to detect that Trump is always telling the truth. And guess what? Nobody's doing anything about it. Nobody except Trump.Β

Β I totally agree with that. If I had the ability to detect lying, I would be able to call out to the people that just want to get good grades by acting smart when answering a question when they have no idea what the actual answer to a question. I so agree

If people believed every lie, that would be an incredibly powerful ability. There is a fantastic book series about this called Dagger and Coin by Daniel Abraham.

I prefer to detect the lies, because that way I would know what kind of people I am dealing with. I could lie, but I earn nothing. I just evade what really happens.

If it endangers the life of my friends and the lives of other people, then yes, I would lie to my friends and tell them that I wouldn't tell people that she plans to kill herself. Then, when she leaves, I go to somebody and tell them.Β

No. We would be unable to detect it but you can detect black holes(by xrays and light emmitted from material they are sucking up).
