A new study has uncovered that people who instantly respond to a problem have more confidence in answering and are more inclined to believe in them because the brain means that he/she must be telling the precise answer. And people disbelieve someone who responds slowly to questions. The credibility of a person depends on how an answer is being questioned promptly and what are the aspects of that answer. Whenever someone answers a question their audience unintentionally considers the way they reply in addition to the response itself. In an instant, the mind prepares a judgment if he is right or wrong and how much percentage is true in the answer. They make a very quick often unconscious assessment about their decision and the sincerity about the answer. People always come in a dilemma when they hear the answer from someone else if it is accurate or not. Researchers from the Grenoble Ecole de Management in Grenoble found the thought process while answering the question and how the speed diversifies when someone answers and it may provide an unintentional clue as to the person’s credibility.

An experiment was conducted to prove that and the data was recorded to find out that how many people respond to the questions and in what way. Dr. Ziano and co-author Dr. Deming Wang, who are the top researchers at the James Cook University, successfully conducted 14 experiments that demanded a great knowledge of human behavior and advance tools to maintain the records of a person that how people respond to questions. In these experiments over 7,565 participants were involved from the U.S., U.K., and France since different countries' men were part of this and hence a better report was achieved.

In each of these experiments, researchers observed some different kinds of things, and individuals were observed responding to a certain question in a very different way. Some responded quite fast and some answered late and all of these data were recorded in a video; their responses were heard in a form of an audio representation and recording or read about a question and answer exchange. Their response time was recorded and noted down and after a 10 seconds pause response time ran from instantaneous replies to answers. Participants were consistently being judged by the people along with a special team of experts so that if they took longer time to answer then they were being less sincere and have the least interest in answering.
