How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
Is there some physical sign that indicates if a person may be lying to you?

They say that if a person loves you, their pupils dialate (or something to that effect), but is there a physical sign of someone lying?

I'm just wondering. I have a gut feeling that someone isn't being honest with me and I'm curious to know if there are any tell tale signs.

Thanks for your input.

Go with your 'gut' feeling. Some people are consumate liars. They lie even when they don't need to. For these folks, there is a tell tale sign. You watch their lips. If their lips are moving...they're lying.

I can assure you I speak from experience. Your gut instinct is tipping you off. If you're questioning it, you already know the answer.

Someone said liars don't blink when they do their false jobs.
It's cause you have to concentrate much more when you lie.

Actually, if someone has a reason to lie, they will most likely take the oppertunity, and in natural you know you would lie in the situation that you fear in question. So if you think they are? They most likely are, because they are probably lying to you when you when you dont know it.

Yeah, if what they say turns out not to be true.

Some people are so sociopathic (like the freaking President of the United States) that while they're telling a lie, you're never going to know....you have to wait until after the fact.

One thing is that people who lie...keep lying. It's a way of life for them.....best to avoid if possible.

Always follow your gut instinct. Watch their eyes too, if they cannot look at you in a comfortable relaxed way, they are hiding something. Some look defiant, others cannot look you in the eye. Follow your gut instinct.

Re: How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
once their lips start moving they start lying...or vice-versa. Most of them do it unintentionaly, convinced that they are telling the truth which makes them much better deceivers than those who do it intentionaly.

if u look at them and thier eyes shift to their right.
I learned that from Tony Robbins.
 Quoting: The Architect


Its not to the right, its to the left people. If a person looks to the left they are using the left side of their brain which is the creative side to do creative thinking, otherwise making up a story and lying to you. If they shift eyes to the left, they are lying.. to the right, that are NOT

Ask them a lot of questions about what you think they are lying about and if they get angry at answering the questions then they are liars.

Re: How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
Draw a stick figure and put a label above the left side 'Construct' and the right side 'Recall'

Construct.......Recall
........visual........
........auditory......
........kinestetic....

Generally but not always:

Then if the eyes look 'up' they are visualizing. The direction will tell you if they are 'constructing' it or whether they are recalling it.

If the eyes go 'mid-level' they are hearing the answer within themselves and again which side will tell you if they are constructing it or recalling it.

If the eyes go 'down' then they are checking their feelings.

Liars always look to the right when they are telling a lie..

Also after they have told a lie,their lips move a bit after they have closed their mouth

iof they move thier eyes to the right while they're talking.
 Quoting: The Architect


You are half correct. Left brain vs right brain. Some look to the left while they lie, others look to the right, depending on which side of their brain is dominant. You have to ask the person a question that makes them think back to a past memory (something they are REALLY remembering). They will either look left or right. Whatever way they look is the way they look when they are remembering something or telling the truth. Those same people will look the opposite way when they are making something up (or telling a lie)

Re: How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
Facial expressions and changes don't always mean a person is lying, usually they're responses and biological alterations relating to how comfortable they feel around that specific individual their communicating with.

The first thing you should ask yourself is, what does a person do differently when they're telling the truth compared to deliberately acting and deviating from the truth...?

Learn body language, it is an effective tool though not a perfect one. The body make (micro) movements with every kind of feelings they have. Many managers are taught to read body language.

Re: How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
Here is an example of body language. If a woman thinks you are friendly, then, when she is seating, her legs will be open. If she is defensive, then her legs are closed. Body language has to do with the conscious mind, the subconsious mind and biological reactions.

If someone is lying, the face will often show micro movements and the person don't like to look in your eyes. But, as stated previously, reading body language is a good tool though not perfect.

Re: How do you tell if someone is lying to you?
There are NO 100% RELIABLE physical indications of lying.

Many honest people can be falsely accused of lying just because they display some of these so-called physical body language signs.

Conversely, many sociopaths/psychopaths are falsely believed to be telling the truth because they do not display such physical signs.

So...

TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS

and...

DO SOME INVESTIGATING
