People Find It Easier To Tell The Truth Over Text

Texting Truth
UPI.com

A new study found that people are more likely to tell the truth over a text message than in a voice interview.

Does this mean that all you have to do when you need to know the truth is send a text?  Probably not, because liars will be liars, but it definitely shows that people are more likely to give up sensitive information over a text message.

Researchers ran a study to see what people did when sensitive questions were asked on text or through voice. They also analyzed reactions when a human or a computer asked the questions and how the presence of other people affected the answers.

RESULTS:

People were more likely to give sensitive information through text messages than in the voice interviews.

It seems that texting might lower a person’s tendency to hide the truth or to present themselves in the best possible light.

This was also the case when the participants knew that they were communicating with a human interviewer on the text.
