How To Detect a Lie

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
How to detect a lie? Are you getting the whole truth and nothing but? The answer may be lying right in front of you. You will need: A good ear Good eyes And a healthy skepticism. Step 1: Watch the suspected liar's hands Body language studies show that people tend to touch their face and scratch their nose when they lie. Step 2: Follow their eyes Liars tend to blink a lot and don't maintain eye contact. Step 3: Note their words A liar will often skip contractions saying "I did not" instead of "I didn't" and avoid pronouns, using someone's full name instead of "he" or "she." Step 4: Check their smile People who are telling the truth use many facial muscles, but liars smile with just their mouth. Step 5: Notice their posture Liars tend to keep their body posture closed by folding their arms, for example. They may also unconsciously put an object between you, like a cup of coffee. Step 6: Pause momentarily before responding If the silence makes them uncomfortable, they may be lying. Step 7: Pay attention to details If they provide more information than necessary, that's a bad sign. People tend to be overly specific when they're making something up. Step 8: Change the subject If they seem relieved, that's probably a red flag that they've been lying straight to your face! Step 9: What you do from here is up to you It may be smart to file your knowledge away for future use. However, if you're noticing a trend, it might just be time to teach your liar a lesson. Did you know? In a recent poll, 91% of American reported lying on a regular basis.
