How to catch a lie

السلام عليكم & Hi :) Make Your Own Gifts Here

One of the most important skills you can learn is how to recognize a lie when you hear one. Identifying a lie is not always easy. As you may have noticed, people who make a habit lying are often quite good at it. But if you suspect you're being hoodwinked, don't say a word. Just pay attention. The following clues should tell you if someone's trying to pull the wool over your eyes.

Listen to her/his voice
A liar is a person with something to hide. And no matter what that something may be, it's probably weighing heavily on her/his mind. As a result, a liar must make an effort to avoid giving too much away. She'll/he'll speak more slowly and pause before answering questions. As she/he grows more anxious, her/his voice may start to sound higher. When she/he does respond, she'll/he'll be careful not to offer specific information and may say something vague.

 Study her/his face
Most people are terrible actors. A liar may have her/his story straight, but if she/he can't control her/his face, she'll/he'll be as easy to spot as a soap opera star in a Shakespeare play. A person who's telling the truth will laugh, grimace, or cry when appropriate, but a liar may have to think about it first. She may even be concentrating so hard on what to do that she'll/he'll blink less and hold her/his head unnaturally still.

See if she/he squirms
When it comes to body language, there are two types of liars - the fidgeted and the control freaks. The fidgeted can't sit still. They shift around in their seats, tap their feet, or play with their jewelry/accessories. They also touch their faces more often - rubbing their noses, running their fingers through their hair, or brushing their hands against their mouths. The control freaks, on the other hand, go out of their way to avoid looking nervous. They may move very little and avoid gesturing altogether. Some will even go so far to cross their arms or sit on their hands.
