World Full Of Liars?
White lies, heavy lies. No one is immune of lying. How many time have you lied today? None?? Are you telling the truth? We all do occasionally lie. More or less.
Sometimes, there are some circumstances that forces you – let’s say- not to lie – but to avoid telling the truth.
Yes, it is always more honest and honorable to admit the truth, even how bad it might be. Some people lie to save their marriages, relationships, some to save their jobs, kids lie about small not hurtful things…there are such varieties of personal reasons to do so.
But does lying have to be part of everyday living? If you want to learn the signs if you are facing a potential liar,here are some common signs you should observe:
Quick Head Position Changes
If you see someone suddenly make a head movement when you ask them a direct question, they may be lying to you about something.
The head will be retracted, bowed down,or tilted to the side.This will often happen right before the person is expected to respond to a question.
Lying Vs Standing Still
People fidget when they get nervous, but you should also watch out for people who are not moving at all.This may be a sign of potential lie coming at you, as the body positions ready itself for possible confrontation.
When you speak and engage in normal conversation, your body moves around naturally in subtle, relaxed movements. While waiting an answer to your question, if you notice a rigid, catatonic stance devoid of movement, it is often a major warning sign that something is not OK.
Changes In Breathing Patterns
When someone starts lying to you, they may begin to breathe heavily without even knowing it. When breathing changes, shoulders will rise and the voice may get shallow.
They are out of breath because their heart rate and blood flow change. Your body experiences these types of changes when you’re nervous and feeling tense — when you lie.
Repeating Of Words

Liars often talk a lot because they are hoping that, with all their talking and seeming openness, others will believe them 100 %.
Touching Or Covering Mouth
A clear sign of lying is that a person will automatically put hands over their mouth when they don’t want to deal with an issue or answer a question.
When adults put their hands over their lips, it means they aren’t revealing everything, and they just don’t want to tell the truth.
They are literally closing for communication.
Shuffling feet tells you that the potential liar is uncomfortable and nervous. It also shows you that the person wants to leave the situation.They want to walk away.
This is one of the key ways to detect a liar. Just look at their feet and you can tell a lot.
When people lie, it’s common that they break eye contact, but the liar could go the extra mile to maintain eye contact in attempt to control and manipulate you, so you won’t notice their nervousness.
When people tell the truth, most of them will occasionally shift their eyes around, and may even look away from time to time.
Liars, on the other hand, will use a cold, steady look to intimidate and control. Watch out for rapid blinking as well.
Pointing A Lot
When a liar becomes hostile or defensive, he is attempting to turn the tables on you.The liar will get hostile because he is angry that you’ve discovered his lies,which may result in a lot of pointing.
Most liars usually verbally “fight”. Most common sign of a liar.
The stress response, causes the need for throat clearing in liars, as the moisture usually present in the throat, change direction to the skin in the form of sweat. Liars sweat a lot.
Liars often sway their entire bodies, slightly backward to distance themselves from their targets. People to whom you are lying cause anxiety because of the fear of being caught in the lie.
Observe a lot. By watching their body language and their gestures you can learn a lot if you are dealing with a liar or honest person.
Don’t get fooled easily!
