Trusting your instincts when dating

Those night-before-the-wedding jitters might have been more logical than you thought.

That's where I got the idea to do a podcast; interview people about their worst relationships.

That's when I knew I wasn't the only one with a broken picker. It didn't seem to matter if you were a man or woman, what your sexual orientation or race was; the answer was the same: our pickers were broken. There's a month/a year/ half my life I'll never get back" story.

Some of the suspects in the videos had 'stolen' a $100 bill from a bookshelf, whereas others had not.

When the 72 participants were asked to say which suspects they thought were lying and which were telling the truth, they were only able to detect liars 43 per cent of the time and those telling the truth only 48 per cent of the time.

Researchers found that when it comes to detecting deceit (illustrated), automatic associations - or using your 'gut instinct' - may be more accurate than conscious thought in helping humans sort truths and lies.

The study suggests that conscious awareness may actually hinder our ability to detect whether someone is lying In the experiment, researchers made 72 people watch videos of ‘suspects’ in a mock-crime interview.

Dr Brinke said: ‘These results provide a new lens through which to examine social perception and suggest that - at least in terms of detection of lies - unconscious measures may provide additional insight into interpersonal accuracy.’Sony SRS-XB40 has a built-in multi-coloured line light, speaker lights and a flashing strobe.

It features 24 hours of battery life and claims to be a 'mini-disco on the move'.

So while relying on gut feelings doesn't always lead to good decisions, it's not nearly as flighty a tactic as it may sound.

A study published this week (THURS) in the journal Science found that the gut instincts reactions people had about each other shortly after their marriage helped predict whether they'd still be together four years later.

When we look for outside advice on how to express our natural feelings, disingenuous results occur.
