DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, February 2014) Take the index finger on your dominant hand and draw a capital letter "Q" on your forehead. Where did the tail on your Q land? Theorists believe that if it ended up over your right eyebrow, you're presenting the letter as you would see it. You tend to lie less in life and you're less likely to deceive others. If the tail is over your left eyebrow, you may want to consider becoming a con artist, because you're probably a good liar. You're presenting the letter how someone else would see it, meaning you're also good at manipulating others' opinions. One study has found that six out of every 10 people may lie during a 10-minute conversation, and in that conversation they'll tell a lie every 30 seconds. Jake Porway (@jakeporway) shows us that life is all about the numbers in the new series The Numbers Game, premiering Monday, March 24, 2014, at 9:30 PM ET/PT on National Geographic Channel, as well as on Nat Geo Mundo and internationally on NGC in May. Host Jake, a data scientist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer, will reveal the surprising and fascinating statistical science at work behind everyday situations. The series explores the topics of toughness, superstition, skepticism, lying and desirability, among others, through mind-bending statistics, hilarious man-on-the-street experiments and interactive game play.
