Ever wondered why you catch your man when he lies to you? Well, that’s because you have superior sensory equipment.

According to self-help authors and body language experts Allan and Barbara Pease, men and women think differently and have different behaviours.

The body language research of humans reveals, that in face-to-face communications, non-verbal signals account for around 60 per cent of the impact of the message, while vocal sounds make up around 30 per cent. The other ten per cent or so is words, said the authors.

While communicating, a woman's superior sensory equipment picks the information and analyses it, reports The Daily Telegraph.

Her brain's ability to transfer rapidly between hemispheres makes her more proficient at integrating and deciphering verbal, visual and other signals.

That is why, most men have difficulty successfully lying to a woman face-to-face.

But, lying to a man face-to-face is comparatively easy, as he does not have the necessary sensitivity to spot incongruities between her verbal and non-verbal signals.

Most men, if they were going to lie to a woman, would be far better off doing it over the phone, in a letter or with all the lights off, and a blanket over their heads.
