5 Ways Of Telling If Someone Is Lying

5 Ways Of Telling If Someone Is Lying. In today’s competitive world it is very hard to understand who is truthful and who isn’t. An Average person hears between 10 and 200 lies per day. In any aspect of our lives, understanding people’s true intention is really important, especially in the business world. for example: in real estate business many middle-person lies related to house price, about its locality etc but it is you who should know where to invest and with whom you should sign a deal. Even in a Relationship, you should know with whom you should grow and to whom you should avoid.

People Lie for many reasons, sometimes that reason can be a positive example: people lie because they don’t want to hurt you, or you are too important to them and they don’t want to lose you. Sometimes people lie because of their hidden motives, hidden benefits for example real estate business; mostly you won’t find any middle man in this business who will tell you the right cost of the house. How so ever it is “YOU” Who should know to identify whether the person is lying or not.

Here I am not saying that positive lying is good, but never judge someone without knowing their True intentions. Because things can’t always be true or false, right or wrong. Sometimes there are more shades into it. Hence know the true intention and to know the true intentions first you need to understand whether the person is lying or not. It’s hard to identify a liar but if you notice their gestures, postures, verbal signs. You may be able to understand whether the person is lying or not. Because a liar will never say he is a liar. It should be “You” Who should know whom to trust.

Here are the 5 ways to tell if someone is lying:

1) Change stories every time

The worst enemy of a liar is someone with a sharp memory. Liars usually don’t remember what they have said first and when asked another time same thing they might not remember what they have said earlier, they will have an additional story and for that addition, they will have a proper explanation too.

2) Gesture

When someone lies and you look at them suspiciously, you will see some difference in their body language compared to their normal gestures, for example, they will blush, blinking more frequently, they will have a fake smile won’t smile as they always do. Notice them but don’t be too harsh. Because even for an expert interrogator it’s hard to find out whether the person is lying or not on the basis of facial expressions.

3) Verbal Signs

Liars can use fillers such as uh, er, like, and um during moments of hesitation often slip out when someone lies. These fillers can also be referred to as fumbles. Usually, Liar’s fumbles when they lie about something.

Liars usually cut out contraction, in a normal speech contractions are used to shorten the sentence but however, a liar cut out contractions, they purposely use big sentences or words and usually say it slowly. Usually, they do it because they want more time to create lie in their mind.

They repeat your question, instead of giving a straight answer to your question, you might hear your question repeated back to you or you will notice a slight pause in an answer. If not these then the person might ask you to repeat the question, so that they can frame the answer in their mind

Their voice, pitch rise and falls, hence pay extra attention to their rise and fall of pitch. It is very common that liars voice pitch changes either because of anxiety and nervousness, or either to add emphasis to certain word or statement so that it can look real or voice pitch changes as a distracting method.

They will start convincing and make you feel as if you are doing something really bad to an innocent person like them, to some extent they can become angry too.

5) Change the subject and pause

Liars omit the part from the story. they don’t say exact story they will share only the part which they want to share and rest will be omitted and when you ask question-related to that omitted part they will change the subject they will talk about something else, for example, they will share every detail about their picnic like how excited they were, how well dressed all were, how sitting arrangements were made what all things happened when they reached but suddenly they stop there and start talking about something else. And when you ask more about that story either they cut it or change the story or will share by taking many pauses in a sentence.
