Signs of Deception Body Language of Lies Emotional Gestures & Contradiction Interactions and Reactions Verbal Context and Content Other signs of a lie Final Notes
Body Language of Lies Physical expression will be limited and stiff, with few arm and hand movements. Hand, arm and leg movement are toward their own body the liar takes up less space.
A person who is lying to you will avoid making eye contact. Hands touching their face, throat & mouth. Touching or scratching the nose or behind their ear. Not likely to touch his or her chest/heart with an open hand.
Emotional Gestures & Contradiction Gestures/expressions don’t match the verbal statement, such as frowning when saying “I love you.”
Interactions and Reactions A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.
A liar is uncomfortable facing his questioner/accuser and may turn his head or body away. A liar might unconsciously place objects (book, coffee cup, etc.) between themselves and you.
Verbal Context and Content A liar will use your words to make answer a question. When asked, “Did you eat the last cookie?” The liar answers, “No, I did not eat the last cookie.” A statement with a contraction is more likely to be truthful: “I didnt do it” instead of “I did not do it”
Other signs of a lie If you believe someone is lying, then change subject of a conversation quickly. The guilty wants the subject changed; an innocent person may be confused by the sudden change in topics and will want to back to the previous subject.
Final Notes Obviously, just because someone exhibits one or more of these signs does not make them a liar. The above behaviors should be compared to a person’s base (normal) behavior whenever possible.
