There is an actual reason why.

Surprisingly, it is very hard for people to lie. If you ask someone who stole a cookie, "Did you steal a cookie?", they will most likely say "I would never" or "Didn't do it", but never come our and say "I didn't steal a cookie". So, that question sees if they give a solid "Yes", or says something else (anything else is considered suspect).

(If you're interested in learning more, google statement analysis)

Just a quick criminology lesson! :)

Yes, but if it's written on paper how are you supposed to tell if someone is telling the truth or not?

They STILL won't say "Yes"! For whatever reason, it is extremely stressful for a human to lie, your mind hates it. It seems weird, I know, but it's true!

I used to do HR and asking an applicant if they ever smoked pot tested their honesty .
