How To Tell If Someone Is Lying
|Career : Body Language|
There are many giveaway clues to someone lying. You may know the classic one about someone scratching their nose.
Here are two more: first of all covering their mouth with their hand when speaking - this sometimes shows that the person is lying or that they are very uncomfortable about what they are saying.
The more tell tale sign and one that people do without realising it when lying is that their pupils get smaller, so if you look out for this you can see if they are telling a lie.
Finally remember that when telling a lie they may look away for a split second or not be able to maintain eye contact with you at all - if they tend to make eye contact all the time but look away when making a specific statement it is likely that is when they are lying.
