How to separate lies from truth guide!! :o

Good day AGuide2Everything Community!


Have you ever found yourself in the position of Sherlock Holmes, trying to determine whether a friend, co-woker, or an absolute stranger is telling the truth?

I have compiled a quick guide for you which touches upon things which are indications that a person is most likely lying. And I say ‘most likely’ as some people may develop these behaviours on the basis of another factor – aside from lying. Or… maybe they are just Professor Moriarty #2… ๐Ÿ˜‰ we’ll never know…

Let’s get to the facts. First, I will provide you with the most common ones which I found on Business Insider. In the end, however, I will add some of my own.

Things which giveaway that someone is lying:

1. Eyes darting back and forth

*peoples eyes usually dart back and forth when they feel uncomfortable (as if it’s a defence mechanism to find an escape out of the situation).

2. Rapid Blinking

*when people are stressed about lying, they will blink much more rapidly than usual 1blink/ 2 seconds rate.

3. Shutting eyes for more than 1 second at a time

*really have no clue how people came to this conclusion but apparently it’s a defence mechanism. “To close eyes to a situation may mean the person doesn’t want to deal with it”.

4. Glancing to the right if a person is right-handed

*Yes lefties, you’re at a huge advantage here ๐Ÿ˜‰

5. Fake smiling, Sweating, Touching Nose/Face

*pretty straightforward…

And here are some of my signs/tips

6. Look at the left side of the person’s face when asking important questions .

*It’s been proven, scientifically, that the left side of our face cannot vary emotions as our right can… it simply cannot lie (more about this in next posts).

7. Unnecessary laughter.

*Laughing quite a bit – moderately is absolutely fine. However if someone laughs constantly, it may mean they may be anxious and are releasing stress this way.

8. Follow you intuition

*in the end, learn to completely trust your intuition/ gut feeling. Even if all points above match the “evil suspect” to whom your talking to (a slight dramatization btw :D), and your intuition says otherwise, please do me a favor and go with your intuition.

It’s one of our evolved senses which science still cannot fully explain. We will definitely make a post about it.

Do you believe in intuition? Do you trust it? Comment down below and say a number between 1-50.

The commenter with the closest number to the one I thought of will choose a topic for our Friday’s post!

Have a great day everyone,

      2. Thank you for this bright comment, Ortensia ๐Ÿ˜€ The same case with my parents and close friends – excellent lie detectors. Detecting just from the tone of voice sounds incredible! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ You must probably know a person very well in order to do that!

  2. Looking for a liar? Statistically males are using more lies than females, the difference is around 30 %. Hopefully this is really true, who knows for sure!? Sherlock may be.
