Can You Catch Me In A Lie?

I enjoyed this post and wanted to share it with you. Let’s keep Diana’s fun game going so we can learn more about each other. Below are mine. What are yours?

2. I’m extremely introverted and have substantial social anxiety so in high school I joined a Marine Corps JROTC program and the Speech and Debate Club figuring they’d either help to cure me or kill me.

3. My father, son’s father-in-law, and wife’s brother were all bitten by rattlesnakes within a couple of years.

With Love,



I’ve always been very interested in personality tests. I think it’s because I love the idea of teams working together and if I understand what makes individuals tick, I can more easily figure out how to get a group of individuals to work together toward a common goal.

Just in case you’re curious, I’m an ENFP according to Myers Brigg, a Number 7 (generalist, visionary) according to Enneagram and Orange in the True Colors Personality test.

Anyway, you have no idea how excited I was when I had the opportunity several years ago to attend a Body Language workshop facilitated by an experienced police investigator!

In this workshop we learned, among other things, how to tell when someone is being deceitful. To practice what we had learned, we were divided into groups of 3 or 4 people and given time to come up with two truths and one lie about ourselves and then try to catch each other in the lie.

      You’re welcome, Diana. To give more people the opportunity to guess, I plan to wait a day or so before saying which of the three is my fib. ;-D!

  3. Yell yes I also like Diana and she has some bloody great posts this was one of them just so you know but hang on you do know which is why you reblogged it so I should just delete all that but hell that isn’t me so I am leaving it here.

    I’m guessing number 3 is the lie.

    Here are mine:
    1. I once ate chocolate covered ants.
    2. I once ate pickled jellyfish.
    3. I once ate a spider.

      I plan to tell people which of mine is false in a day or two so more people can play. In the meantime, I’ll guess #3 for you. My reasoning is that even if a spider somehow got into your mouth if you knew it was there you’d have immediately spit it out and if you didn’t know it was there you wouldn’t know you ate it.
