    How To Know if Someone Is Lying ?!!

    Body language never lies.

    Are they making eye contact?
    Are they fidgeting?
    Are they stuttering and/or mumbling?

    There are plenty of ways to tell if somebody is lying just by looking at how they are acting.

      I'll have to agree with the friend above and "upped" her answer. The body is pretty much the base through which you can know if someone is lying.

      However, it just occurred to me that some people are so good at lying, that they even pass polygraph.

      That is quite a talent to be able to fool a polygraph. I believe the only people who can do that are trained to do that. I could be wrong though.

    Hello Tarek,

    Look into their eyes. Noone can fool me when I see the look in their eyes.

    For somebody you've never met before, do the usual about the eyes, If someone close - easier to spot, but don't let them on that you know their 'tell'. Good for poker. - wrote a hub on microexpressions & NLP eye movement.

    Yes, I do agreed on the tell tale signs you can get from body language, avoiding eye contact or making uneasy gesture or cold sweat. Many of times people tend to clear their throat constantly or speaking in an unusual tone that is not normally spoken.

    There are a lot of "hints"/indicators that suggest someone is lying, but I'm not sure anyone can ever be certain that someone else is not lying.  People who are "good liars" often know about all those indicators, and can be pretty skilled at using them.  Some of those "hints" come from the fact that the person feels bad about lying.  Sociopaths don't feel bad about lying; so that, alone, gives them an an edge.  I think in some cases it might help to ask a few more questions, because sometimes a person can be skilled at actually telling the lie but may mess up when required to provide additional information (and still control those indicators).

    Sometimes we know that one person or another would absolutely never lie about one thing or another.  Other times, I think, maybe, we have to accept that we can't be certain if someone is lying or not - at least not at the time someone has said something.
