Lies and Deceit

Updated on February 4, 2013

Ways of knowing if you are being deceived

I have always had a knack of seeking the truth. In fact, I live to know facts instead of lies. I am currently a college student studying Criminal Forensics and I find the course interesting.

It seems most of my life was filled with nothing more than lies. Even if they were white lies to try and protect me, no one ever really told me the truth about anything. I lived in a world full of deception. I came to reading people really well by their body language and words they said. To this day I still can.

I am ambiguous, I can interpret context into having many different meanings and therefore must ask what they mean by it.

Here is a list of some of the things to look for if you are wanting to know if someone is lying. A contraction within their statement is more than likely to be the truth. A deceiver may leave out pronouns and speak in a monotonous tone. They imply answers instead of denying something directly. A deceiver will twist your words to make an answer to your question. Using humor or sarcasm to avoid a subject. The word "never" doesn't mean "no" and if they use it then they are lying. There are many more ways to know. Most times just go with your gut feeling. It is usually correct.

We live in a world full of deceptive people. No one likes to be honest in this day in time. If you go looking for answers, they are more likely to just try and deceive you even more. Look for the cues, listen to their words and check their body language. Imagine if you were the one being questioned as to how you would act if you were lying.
