The late Dr. Maureen O’Sullivan from the University of San Francisco, along with renowned expert in deception Dr. Paul Ekman, completed a scientific study called The Wizards Project, which identified 50 people with an exceptional ability to spot lies after testing more than 15,000 people over a 20 year span. They call these people “Truth Wizards” (wizard meaning ‘sage’, a person of amazing skill or accomplishment). These experts are not mystic or psychic.  They rely on concrete clues to deception that when pointed out, most people can clearly see. The question is, why do most people miss the clues initially and only a select few see them?  Science has yet to answer this question.

Renee, also known as “Eyes for Lies”, is one of the 50 people identified in the study.  There is no centralized place to read about the research outside of a large collection of article citations, which can be provided upon request.  Below are links to many articles on the internet that discuss the study.
