He said he would go with her friends, but one of his friends call home to ask how she was. Is he lying? How do you know your partner is lying or not?
If suspicious of their speech that indicates the message is confusing, then it’s time to look for other signs. The most obvious sign is the language of your partner’s body.
Richard Newman, a researcher of body language, shared tips on how to detect lies.
After research in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), he trained more than 6,500 people from 29 countries that successfully use body language and how to read these markers in daily life.
“The best way to uncover whether someone is lying or not is to notice the awkwardness and unfamiliarity,” said Newman.
“In addition to tools that can detect lies, which must be considered is the existence of signs of stress, anxiety, and depressed.”
He suggests you should set a good voice before starting the investigation. “Make sure it fits the facts,” says Newman. “Do not just talk about that are accused, those who want to make you feel comfortable ask first.”
Newman believes it will help identify significant changes in their appearance.
Once you make them comfortable and quiet, then there are signs that you should look for:
Blink. Eye movements that could mean as many signs that can be trusted to know a lie. The average person blinks once every 10 seconds, so if he blinks too often, there are many possibilities that he was thinking (maybe lie) quickly.
The touch of the hand in the face. The higher level of hand gestures around the face, the higher the level of anxiety. “We are naturally designed to prove the truth,” said Newman. So, any way that made her hands to her face, shows the person is trying to cover up lies.
Suddenly quiet or tense. The opposite of his eyes are staring, blank stare response shows also dishonest. It was common for a liar who made a special effort to not move their eyes much to make it look convincing.
You may be suspicious if someone looked very nervous and think that they are lying, but it is a common attitude. Something unusual is to talk to someone who looks like a statue.
Do not approach someone when they are busy, too easy for them to hide their reactions and body language to cover when they’re busy doing the work.
These clues are not going to turn you into a lie detector. But by reading the body language of someone, at least you can get some certainty as being suspicious.
