Lying

-|Life Hacks|-

An important skill for life is knowing when one is being lied to, but for every person it is different in detection. Today's blog will go over some common telltale signs of lying.

Body Language is a big one here. It'll be easier if you know the habits of the person. 
  • Excessive hand motion or touching of the face.
  • The speed of speech is changed (ie. talking faster or slower than normal).
  • Lag of expressions, no matter how minute. (smiling or frowning after a statement instead of while saying it)
  • The eyes. Excessive blinking. Looking away. 
A big problem with these methods is that lot of the body language happens very briefly and/or very fast. In my own experience, I've noticed that focusing on the face is the most useful. Sudden flashes of the person's true emotions will appear before they try to change it. Although like before, it will be very quick.  Being over confident in your skill to detect lying will also work against you. Keep an analytical and unbiased state of mind.
