How To Detect BS

I’m not really sure if ‘BS’ is considered bad language on the web, but I like to keep things a little clean over here. BS stands for bullshit, and it’s a good idea to work on detecting when you’re around it.

Everyone lies: it’s just a question of how, when and why. From the relationship saving “yes, you do look thin in those pants” to the improbable “your table will be ready in 5 minutes”, manipulating the truth is part of the human condition. Accept it now.

This article from Lifehack favorite, Scott Berkun, delves into the seedy, yet common, world of BS and looks at ways to see it coming and deal with it.

Of course, what may be an equally useful article is How To Bullshit. You can get pretty far if you have a way with words and disguising BS. However, until that article is written, enjoy this gem.
