Using data from a Cornell University study, the video notes that most people appear to lie when speaking over the phone versus when communicating through email.

According to the study, 14 percent of people will lie in email, 21 percent in text, 27 percent face-to-face and 37 percent on the phone.

Thus, the YouTube host concluded that these seven words might help detect a lie: “Could you just email me about that?”
