Find Out If You're a Good Liar or Not with This Five Second Test

Melanie Pinola , Gawker Media

Don't click play on this video yet or you'll ruin the surprise! First, try this quick test to find out if you're an expert at deception or not.

Quick, draw a capital Q on your forehead....Now you can read on or watch the video.

University of Hertfordshire psychology professor Richard Wiseman says in the video above that the direction you draw the Q can reveal if you're a good liar or not-and, interestingly enough, whether you're an extrovert or an introvert.

You can take the test with a big grain of salt, since undoubtedly many introverts are adept at lying. The way you chose to draw the Q, however, could say something about your perspective.
