natural lie detector

I was watching an interesting documentary and this time it's about lying in human nature. We all ie, whether its white li to help spare others feelings, others lie to make themselves look good. Regardless of the reason, it seem to hae come a part of human nature and everyday life.

So what does this have to do with Stargardt's? Well I'm not sure iits true for others, but for myself, I realized because of my inability to see, I have developed a way of observation method based on body language, voice, and just an overal instinct. It's interesting because it also allows me to detect abnormality in people's behavior, and I guess in a way become nature's lie detector.

Perhaps part of the reason why we areable to detect lies better tahn sighted people is we tend to pay more attention because of th fact that we cannot see, and also, many people may be good at lying with their faces but fail to notice the settle tone and pitches in their voice. They saya key in being a good lie detector is the attention to details, maybe it not so much that eople can't tell if someone is lying, but more so they just on't care. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own lives they often could care less if someone else is lying or not.

Just tought this wasaniteretig topc. Whether its a good or bad thing that we can detect lies, that's a whole other discussion.
