Two truths and a lie, I remember playing this cringe-worthy ice breaker game many a time before a class, a meeting or a gathering. Today I discovered something that blew my mind…
First of all, how to Play Two Truths and a Lie?
Usually, each person in the group will introduce themselves by stating two truths and one lie. The topics usually range from hobbies, to family and past experiences. Depends on which group you are with, the statements can go from safe to outrageous. Of course, the rest of the participants have to guess which statement is a lie.
After playing this game with my new team last week, I have come to a not so much life-changing but definitely noteworthy observation:
Whenever a statement has to do with numbers, specifically counts, for example, I have been to three JT concerts, or I have 25 cousins, or I speak four languages, nine out of ten times, this statement is a lie!
So here you go. Next time when you find yourself in this ice-breaker situation, embrace the cringe knowing that you can confidently call out the lies using this rule of thumb!
