Now, researchers have studied the study to identify a person lies, through somebody email message.
Reported by the Telegraph, Tuesday, August 6, 2013, a study of Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, Scientific American reported finding the secret that hides the truth or has a different pattern of email communications.
Carnegie Mellon researchers that says people who lie there are many languages that show more deceptive, more negative emotions and less use of words like “I” or “me”.
The study also mentions the length and number of emails could also be a clue, as well as writing a longer email written after someone received an email earlier.

Investigators also said they netted email communications for one year of email respondents. That time, including some time before researchers know the secrets of the respondents.

Researchers at the University of Texas, James Pennebaker, and colleagues have studied the emails from women, who tend to want to hide the depressive episodes of their friends.
Pennebaker and colleagues found more women to send email and use more words in the email, when feeling depressed than when they are in remission. And, the condition was more than a woman who under normal circumstances.
Women also recorded using fewer negative emotional expressions, and use more positive emotion words and the words “I” and “me”.
“Depressed people spend a lot of time to impersonate. They use communication strategies to appear more excited,” said Pennebaker.

For example, communication patterns President George W. Bush, much less use a singular pronoun such as “I”, “me” or “my” for months before the invasion of Iraq.
33rd U.S. President, Harry S. Truman, Pennebaker says, are also doing the same thing before his superpowers dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan during the second world war.
