I wonder if I should get this?
It seems that the suspect is going to clam anyway, even if I know about it.
So does this really help you know anything more or is it just a warning? Does it tell you how many more questions you can ask?

Just a small warning,to see how many questions you have left until the suspect clams up

I recommend you to get the interrogation and intimidation advanced skills first and then get the smart skills so you can solve harder cases. I would do it that way.

This skill never really helped me in anyway. I'll second Lawrence's advice on getting the advanced interrogation and intimidation skills first.

Simply do not take it as it is useless . I recommend you take it in the end when skill points will almost have no use at all for you. It is almost as useless as judgement of character !

I love having stress detection because it helps me plan what questions I can ask people. However I do believe you should get skills that would help you with case solving first such as charm or initmidation and smarts.

I agree with Ms. Helen, I absolutely love stress detection as well. The others are more important just as it has already been mentioned, but when I get that stress detection warning I am very careful on what questions to ask

I also use stress detection the same way Ms Helen and ctown do, but I do agree it's more important to get all your advanced interrogation and intimidation skills, first.

Just keep in mind that it is useful, if you use it correctly.

I choose to be an 'disillusioned police detective' and that skill was given to me automatically. Sad to say, i'd rather that they gave me something else, like more intimidation and interrogation skills. It does keep me plan my questions and even out my questions between suspects though; it's just one more thing to keep track of. If you do note them down, it does help you get the most out of all suspects in the end.

I quite like stress detection but I also would only get it after getting all your intimidation/interrogation skills.

I agree with the notion to get your advanced interrogation and intimidation skills first. BUT stress detection is by no means useless. And personally I've found use for it BEFORE you have all your tough-tree skills. Because in case you fail at threatening the suspect/townsperson you have at least known what question to ask FIRST. ;) And if one plays a "very tough" detective the point cost is almost free anyway.
