Would you rather be able to detect any lie you hear or get away with any lie you told?

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 truth—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).

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.

If you could detect any lie you hear, than you would be able to call out all of those people that just want to sound smart when aswering a question that they dont have the knowledge to answer.

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 $#*& !

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.

Detect a lie I hear. Because I do my best to be 100% honest with people anyway. No reason to lie.

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 WOULD LIKE TO GET AWAY WITH ANY LIE I TOLD LOL
