10 Tips to Help You to Spot a Liar


To help you spot a liar, we have collected here a brief list of 10 giveaways indicating a person may be bending the truth:


  1. Facial muscular twitching. The brain tries to prevent the face from showing any feedback.
  2. No eye contact. His eyes will look away. If the room has a door, that’s where he’ll look.
  3. Crossing of arms and/or legs. This is defensive instinct.
  4. Tight-lipped  smile. This second forced smile used both sexes to feign sincerity.
  5. The pupils of eyes narrow.
  6. Fast talking. A liar wants to get it over with.
  7. The head will shake ‘no’ when giving a ‘yes’ answer or vice versa.
  8. Hiding his hands. Men find it easier to lie with their hands in their pockets.
  9. Mispronouncing words or mumbling. A liar thinks he is not lying when he does this.
  10. Overstated friendliness/laughing. He wants you to like him so you will believe him.
