[Resources] Wizards Project

The Wizards Project is a research project that studies lie detection. According to the study, a "wizard" is one who can detect a lie 80% of the time, as opposed to the average person. The study tested 20,000 people and found 50 (roughly 0.25%) that could be considered wizards. One of the researchers, Paul Ekman, is the basis for the TV show Lie to Me.

Imagine throwing in this research into a game? The Wizards Project would work great in a modern or near-future Psionics based game, as either a psi protection group or a group with shady (possibly government or corporate) dealings.
