Tricks to spot liars
Liar liar, pants on fire
Have you ever suspected that you have been barefaced lied too? Short of strapping on a lie detector test to suspects, there are a few key sneaky tips to learn which will help you spot any liars in your midst.
The person talks differently than usual
Is the person talking slower of faster than usual? Liars often practice beforehand, and because they are trying to act normal it doesn't sound natural at all. Busted!
Weird body language
There are a few obvious signs to watch out for: touching the nose, crossing arms, hiding the mouth etc. If the person usually never does this, you better be on your guard. Be cautious when someone is constantly looking you straight in the eye during a conversation. Liars think it will make them seem sincere, although actually, it is very unusual behaviour in regular conversation.
Ask others opinions
If you walk away from a weird conversation and your friends bore witness, ask two of them if they think the suspect was telling the truth. People are more accurate at discerning truth from lies when they’re in a group of at least three people.
