Three signs that tell you someone is lying
It is not easy to tell if someone is lying to you, but if you suspect your spouse is cheating or are unsure about the honesty of your employees, you are probably picking up telltale clues without realising it. Hiring cheating partner investigators or asking a private investigator to trace people’s history are both options that will help deal with these situations. However, before you take those steps, consider these three signs that will tell you if someone is lying:
Look at their face
In order to spot telltale facial clues, you need to understand someone’s normal expressions. You can work these out by engaging in casual conversation before you start asking important questions. When you do, look out for sweating or blushing, face touching and a smile that doesn’t alter the lines around the eyes.
Look at their eyes
It is unclear who first said, ‘The eyes are the window to the soul,’ but when it comes to spotting a liar, they were undoubtedly correct. Without staring, look carefully for rapid blinking or eye movements and extended amounts of time with the eyes closed. Don’t automatically assume that someone who does not look straight at you when they are talking is lying, some liars will overcompensate by staring.
Listen to their speech
By listening carefully to what someone is saying you may spot irregularities in their story. You might also notice a liar filling in some of the gaps between their words with noises such as ‘uhm’ or ‘err’. People who are lying may use fewer personal pronouns such as, ‘me’, ‘mine’ and ‘I’ in a subconscious attempt to put distance between themselves and their lies.
We would all like to think that those around us always tell the truth but sadly this is not true. If you do have suspicions about a cheating partner, suspicious employee or dubious tenant it might help put your mind at rest to hire a private investigator. Contact one of our experts here today.
