60 percent of Indians spy online
Bangalore: Indians are turning out to be more spying in the context of catching their partner's lie by using internet. Around 60 percent Indians have accepted to catch their partners lying using the lie detectors, says a survey conducted by Yasni.

Out of the 826 Indian responding, 59 percent admitted discovering a lie told by their partner, another 24 percent taken up internet measures to expose suspected lies, but got no evidence satisfy their suspicions.
16 percent Indians opted for not using the internet for exposing their partner's lies.

In comparison to Indians, only 30 percent of the Europeans have looked for such information online, suggesting their less-suspicious nature. "Fewer people from India than any other country claimed that they would not search for secrets about their partner on Yasni; showing that Indians are the most suspicious when it comes to trusting their partners," said Andy Barr, CCO, Yasni.

"Many people from all over the world come to us with information about their partner which they themselves have found online and has triggered concerns in their mind that they would like us to investigate further, in particular, comments made in their Facebook and other social networking sites. We have found that the most common lie exposed relates to a current partner saying that they had not had contact with an ex, and the second most common is in connection to their working life and having a worse job than they claimed when they first met," said Jorge Salgado Reyes, Allied Detectives.

"We always urge people to be cautious about the information they find and relating it correctly as it can have serious impacts on the relationships," added Reyes.

1: I think was he talking abt indian or indiana. In my whole life i never heard of YASNI. Forget about using it. And i think they wanted to market them in india. So what a better way to come to news in india. This just a stupid maketting propoganda by a stupid lying compnay. They should publish result of lie detector test on ceo then.

YASNI has a great strategic plan to market itself as a new player on web... and this is all part of game.

5: hay it's clearly mention the suvey is the fact after testing person on lie detector " Around 60 percent Indians have accepted to catch their partners lying using the lie detectors, says a survey conducted by Yasni". i never saw lie detector in my life and i cant expect 99 % of normal public have gone thrugh with it...
so if some of the exceptionally broad minded person attended that event so ehalf of this you cant judge whole india.

6: Not every Indian are comp saccy and neither they know how to run a system. Its is the Urbal part of India i.e the metro people who can think about going online search for suc suspecious thoughts. Rest of he Indians even though they have a thought of suspecious towards their partner or Spouce, still going online will not be their thought rather they would find an alternative to e shut if its a lady and if its a man then would make a hell at home. A comp savvy person will never go online survay caz they know the resulat wount be correct.

10: I guess you have choosen the indians who have just adopt the western life style and just showing to be mod but via soul they are pure indian so wen they are not true for oneself they just trying to search the lie in others.. and if you wuold have the survey of real inidans who are staying in small cities and non metero you will find they are much happier and dont have any suspicions to their partner... then only you should conclude....

11: Firstly, I dont blame Indians,bcos they are learning more and more to access to internet.That sound really gr8. similarly People in India can copy similar way of social network,like mingle box,zoosk,etc the list go on, why ,what for they are creating it? ASK yourself this question first.It is necessary.Are we able to do something gr8 for our Nation. Answer is always NO....The greatest thing in life is to have strong relationship,it might be any country.So let not discuss more on it.

12: Indians are more suspicious than Europeans and others.Does it imply that Indians value truthfulness more than other people? Trust is an important aspect of any type of human relationship and we cannot build trust without being truthful in our conduct.

The suspicious nature is in our blood, some handed over by the most suspicious British and of course so many taboos in the society causes people to break rules many times and not admit it.
