Would I Lie To You?

We’ve just got the results in from this weeks Would I Lie To You challenge and it looks like everyone else found it as difficult as I did, which is somewhat of a relief! It turns out that none of us know each other as well as we thought. Either that or there were some really well hidden lies in there. I’m going to go with the latter.

I’ll start by giving you a little bit of background. At the beginning of last week we asked everyone in our offices to submit two truths and a lie about themselves, and 26 people got back to us. We got everybody to guess which were the fibs, counted up the scores and revealed the answers – and winner – in our virtual staff meeting.

Let’s take a look at what a couple of us here at Loom came up with….

First up it’s Jordan:

    1. I am a very keen surfer who likes nothing better than jumping into the North Sea in the heart of winter! 
    2. I am 27 years old
    3. I am a keen Sheffield Wednesday supporter

You’re probably sat here thinking that A has to be the lie. After all, who would jump into the North Sea in winter? That’s ridiculous! Well, you’d be wrong. Jordan loves to surf, and he even took a dip on New Year’s Day once. Nothing like that fresh sea breeze to blow away some cobwebs, eh? I’m pretty sure that same year I got up at 4pm and spent most of what was left of the day feeling sorry for myself. A classic tale. Anyway, in case you’re wondering, the lie here was that Jordan is a Sheffield Wednesday supporter. He’s Barnsley through and through. I haven’t told him that 25% had C down as true yet though…

We’ll move on quickly from that. Let’s take a look what Caitlin said:

    1. I can speak multiple languages
    2. I am the youngest of three siblings
    3. I have lived abroad for a year

Now this one I figured out by process of elimination. Caitlin did a placement year at university and spent a year living in Germany. She loves to travel and always says she thoroughly enjoyed her time there and values the experience it gave her. She also talks about her family in the studio a lot and therefore A must be the lie. That’s +1 point to me! The majority of people didn’t guess this one correctly though. 44% did’t realise she was the youngest child, and 20% were unaware that she’d spent time abroad.

What, you still want to hear more of what we uncovered? Then here we go…

Sadly, it turns out that Rob can’t breakdance, but 25% of people thought that he could. There’s no excuse for not learning now, I’ve heard it’s good to take up a new hobby during lockdown. Why not schedule it in for 4pm on Monday, right after that Yoga class he mentioned in his WFH tips and tricks. 38% also fell for our other Rob’s lie that saw him collecting old coins, and 56% believed that olives are my favourite food. I’d like to go on record and say that olives are terrible and I don’t understand why anyone would eat them.

I think that’s enough. Let’s wrap this up and take a look at the final scores. On average people guessed 12 out of 26 answers correctly, and scores ranged from 8 all the way up to 18. Rob scored best out of us designers, coming joint second with our Managing Director Jude. They both scored 17 points. In first place though, with amazing knowledge of her colleagues was Vicki. She’s a Research Manager over at our parent company, TLF Research. Did you know that she once met Take That in an airport? Neither did we, until now!
