    How to know if someone is lying?

    How can you know that someone is lying to you? What are the signs that will tell you that the person speaking to you is lying? Can you share your experience?

    signs: couldn't keep eyes on you, looking elsewhere
    jitterbugging, shaking legs, stuttering, keep having pause conversation...

    People usually look to their left when lying.

    If you are not totally naive, you will not find a lying person convincing. It's not about analyzing him/her, it's about they do not sound convincing *to you*.

    I've known some very good liars in my time and about the only way to catch them in a lie is to find out the truth for yourself. I hate being lied to, but it is worse yet to have someone tell someone else that you said something you never said. Being the center of a lie is very disturbing.

      Interesting "Being the center of a lie is very disturbing." Thanks Diana for your answer.

    its true when they say the "eyes are the windows to the soul" ... this is thought to be a reason why many people cannot look directly in the eye when telling a lie. twitching of the hands and feet is also quite common.

    the liar also over compensates to cover for the lies... i.e. stating the obvious when it is not required.

    After reading the comments, I have to warn that "the signs" may not apply to a professional liar (like those trained as spies or someone so evil, that he or she is an expert at deception). In that instance, one must rely on developed sensitivity, an intuitive level; it's akin to "having one's hair ruffled." If you listen, the Soul will tell you. Such sensitivity is developed through meditation and spiritual discipline. ~~~

    Just as in bluffing while gambling everyone has their own distinct "tell sign"  physical reaction, kind of behavior, or habit that gives (or tells) others something isn't quite right.
    Unfortunately (you have to spend time and study a person) to learn what (theirs) are.  Some people give you a (rapid answer) and change the topic immediately. others (never answer the question directly) or give a long rambling answer, some folks blow up in anger first in hopes of intimidating you and then they drop an answer on you with the belief you won't dare ask a "follow up" question.
    There are those that avoid looking you in the eye, others make you repeat the question or ask for clarification to stall in order to come up with something which may also include answering a question with a question. Some people find it hard not to smile when they lie!
    The best liars always sprinkle in bits of the truth and have mastered lying by omission. The art of lying without lying.
    They simply allow you to assume. This allows them deniability.
    "I never (said) that!"
