Here Is One Simple Technique To Help Anyone Detect A Liar With The Right Question

8Observe facial expressions

When people start lying, their facial expressions change. The signs you need to look out for are flared nostrils, lip biting, sweating, and rapid eye blinking. The facial changes are an indication of increased brain activity as soon as a person starts to lie. Some people may start getting facial flushes so look for blushing cheeks.

9Pay attention to tone and sentence structure

When a person lies, the tone of their speech may change. They may start speaking with a higher or lower tone. But never in their usual voice. The sentence structure might be more detailed than usual and they may start providing very specific information because the brain is in overdrive.

10They have all the answers

When a person is asked a question and they pause to think about what you asked them, it indicates you will get the truth but if a person suddenly starts rattling off more than usual, chances are that they have already rehearsed their answers and will blabber away without hesitation. This is a dead giveaway of false information.

11Look at mouth and eyes

When someone is lying, they may start to cover their mouth or eyes with their hands. Some may close them altogether. These are natural indications of the tendency to lie. You also need to listen to how people refer to themselves in the third person. They may say things like “this boy” as a means to distance themselves from the lie.
