Our minds are more accurate than we might think. False information is the weak spot of our marvelous minds. It does not matter how precise a computer is, if we feed it false information (wrong data) the result of its computation will be incorrect. Similarly false information is the cause of most (if not all) human error. In this age, we have access to endless uncensored and unverified data, which contains significant quantities of false information. Unlike computers, our minds are highly trained to detect and filter out most of the false information but occasionally we accept some as true. The problem with false information is that once we accept it as true, we will think with it as true. Since we accepted it, we tend not to look at it again. The good news is that it is simple to find and handle false information once we know how. Every accepted false information, false assumption, illusion, and lie we handle gets us a step closer to our true potential. Every one of these is a hidden splinter in our mind therefore handling them is very rewarding. When accepted, even the smallest amount of false information is enough to cause us a great deal of trouble. This simple but in-depth exploration reveals why we accept some of the false information and how to give our “lie detector” a permanent turbo boost. The journey starts with Fakers who use lies, illusions, and deceit to get ahead in life instead of an honest exchange. They earned the spotlight because they intentionally spread large amounts of false information. The theories presented reveal the root cause of their actions as well as how to spot and deal with them. The casual writing style and everyday examples ensure easy understanding of these seemingly involved subjects. Prior education in the related fields is not required. It’s no fun to be exploited or betrayed. Life is much more fun when we can avoid such potential trouble. In addition, the introduced theories, methods, and practices can assist in solving persistent problems related to study, business, science, and more. Learning new skills can be time consuming and challenging even without the presence of false information. The increased ability to spot the fake and the false can positively affect our progress in life.

This manuscript is about the sense of justice that limits what individuals can do in pursuit of their ends and opens them to exploitation. It shows how flawed agents choosing under partial information advance those of their ends having nothing to do with justice by maintaining such a disposition.
