How to Spot a Liar?

Learn How to Spot a Liar!

When trying how to see whether a person is lying or not, it is easy to look for the wrong signs. It is often thought that whenever a person does not maintain eye contact with you and moves uncomfortably while speaking, he is lying. Well, it is only true to a certain extent.

In fact, liars do look into your eyes when speaking to you and they actually remain calm so as to appear as if they are honest. Instead of trying to look out for clues in the liar's body language, try listening to the way he/she speaks. Try asking questions to the person, and if there is a long pause before the person replies, he might be lying because the liar is actually trying to think up an answer instead of trying to recall.

If the person is really trying to recall when you ask a question, he/she will tend to look up when trying to remember. So if a person looks downwards instead, watch out!

When a person is lying, he/she will tend to touch their face more than normal.

So, watch out for liars around you!
