Lying Example

If a person responds to the question did you ever hit your wife? With an answer such as I love my wife, why would I do that? The suspect is technically telling a truth, but he is avoiding answering your original question, which usually means he is lying.

Illustrators and Manipulators

Illustrators are a sign of telling the truth, this is when you are using your hand gestures to talk. Moving your hands while you are talking is a sign of telling the truth. We also have manipulators. These, are the opposite of illustrators. An example of a manipulator can be playing with your wrist-watch, your jewelry, pulling on your ear lobe, etc.

Reptile Tissue

The last, commonly unknown sign of hiding something is reptile tissue, most people have a reptile tissue in their nose, and it itches when he/she tries to hide something. But, before you assume that the person is hiding something, please establish a base line.

Base Line

When you ask questions to a liar make sure you make a base line during that period. Base line means the difference between telling lies appearance and not telling lies or normal appearance. You need to recognize both scenarios otherwise you can't detect the liar

Read Micro expressions

Micro expressions are split second facial expressions that flash on a person's face for a less than a 25th of a second and reveal the person's true emotion underneath their facade. You need to read that expressions if you want to detect the lies

Focus Carefully

Focus to the upper and lower eyelids, the corner of the eyes, the mouth and the muscles surrounding the mouth, the eyebrows and forehead. These parts of the body always represent true expressions of a human being so you need to focus on those parts of the body to detect the lies effectively

Shaking Hands

When you meet the person who you think is deceiving you, shake their hand. Take note of the temperature. When you are sure they are lying to you, pretend to be leaving and quickly grab their hand for a Good-Bye Handshake. If the temperature is colder, they are fearful.

Exaggerated Details

See if they are telling you too much, like my mom is living in France, isn't it nice there? Don't you like the Eiffel tower? It's so clean there. Too many details may tip you off to their desperation to get you to believe them.

Response Speed

An honest answer comes quickly from memory. Lies require a quick mental review of what they have told others to avoid inconsistency and to make up new details as needed. However, when people look up to remember things, it does not necessarily mean that they are lying.

Quick Clues

Verbal expression can give many clues as to whether a person is lying, such as: Using/repeating your own exact words when answering a question Not using contractions Avoiding direct statements or answers (deflections) Speaking excessively in an effort to convince Speaking in a monotonous tone Speaking in muddled sentences Vocal pitch rising Using classic qualifiers such as I’m only going to say this once... Using humor and sarcasm to avoid the subject Using Deflections (beating around the bush, not answering the question.)

Allow Silence

Always allow silence to enter into the conversation then you can see If they're lying, they will become uncomfortable if you stare at them for a while with a look of disbelief. If they're telling the truth, they will usually become angry or just frustrated (lips pressed together, brows down, upper eyelid tensed and pulled down to glare).

Voice Clarity

A person's voice can also be a good lie indicator; they may suddenly start talking faster or slower than normal, or their tension may result in a higher-pitched speaking tone.

Know More

The more you get to know someone, the better you will become at recognizing their thinking style and the better you will become at knowing when they may be straying from the truth. In the ordinary course of events, you will see a consistent pattern of eye movements. If a person breaks their pattern, this may well suggest that they are deviating from the truth, though they may not be lying deliberately.

Detect Case-by-Case Basis

Forcing Smile

Forcing a smile is often just an attempt to be polite; don't take this personally. If someone fakes a smile for you, it can also mean that they want to make a good impression on you because they value you as a person and are showing respect.
