How to Detect Lies
Become a Lie Detector

Introduction to Detecting Lies:

The following techniques to telling if someone is lying are often used by police, and security

experts. This knowledge is also useful for managers, employers, and for
anyone to use in everyday situations where telling the truth from a lie
can help prevent you from being a victim of fraud/scams and other
Warning: Sometimes
Ignorance is bliss; after gaining this knowledge, you may be hurt when
it is obvious that someone is lying to you.

Signs of Deception:

Body Language of Lies:

• Physical expression will be limited and stiff, with few arm and hand movements. Hand, arm and leg movement are toward their own body the liar takes up less space.
• A person who is lying to you will avoid making eye contact.
• Hands touching their face, throat & mouth. Touching or scratching the nose or behind their ear. Not likely to touch his chest/heart with an open hand.

Emotional Gestures & Contradiction

• Timing and duration
of emotional gestures and emotions are off a normal pace. The display
of emotion is delayed, stays longer it would naturally, then stops

• Timing is off between emotions gestures/expression s and words. Example: Someone says "I love it!" when receiving a gift, and then smile after making that statement, rather then at the same time the statement is made.
• Gestures/expression s don't match the verbal statement, such as frowning when saying "I love you."
• Expressions are
limited to mouth movements when someone is faking emotions (like happy,
surprised, sad, awe, )instead of the whole face. For example; when
someone smiles naturally their whole face is involved: jaw/cheek
movement, eyes and forehead push down, etc.

Interactions and Reactions

• A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.
• A liar is uncomfortable facing his questioner/accuser and may turn his head or body away.
• A liar might unconsciously place objects (book, coffee cup, etc.) between themselves and you.

Verbal Context and Content

• A liar will use your
words to make answer a question. When asked, "Did you eat the last
cookie?" The liar answers, "No, I did not eat the last cookie."

•A statement with a contraction is more likely to be truthful: " I didn't do it" instead of "I did not do it"

• Liars sometimes avoid "lying" by not making direct statements. They imply answers instead of denying something directly.
• The guilty person
may speak more than natural, adding unnecessary details to convince
you.... they are not comfortable with silence or pauses in the

• A liar may leave out pronouns and speak in a
monotonous tone. When a truthful statement is made the pronoun is
emphasized as much or more than the rest of the words in a statement.

• Words may be garbled and spoken softly, and syntax and grammar may be off. In other
words, his sentences will likely be muddled rather than emphasized

Other signs of a lie:

• If you believe
someone is lying, then change subject of a conversation quickly, a liar
follows along willingly and becomes more relaxed. The guilty wants the
subject changed; an innocent person may be confused by the sudden
change in topics and will want to back to the previous subject.

• Using humor or sarcasm to avoid a subject.

Final Notes:

Obviously, just
because someone exhibits one or more of these signs does not make them
a liar. The above behaviors should be compared to a persons base
(normal) behavior whenever possible.
