Spotting a liar

Post by Mauveduh » Sun Jun 19, 2005 5:15 pm

Wondering how to tell if someone is telling the truth? One way is to watch their body language.

One clue that someone is not being truthful is when their gaze points down and to the right. Sometimes variations on this movement are evident when they are trying to maintain eye contact but their head may still make the movement in the same direction.

I haven't heard this particular one before and I can't wait to test it out. Is it the liar's right, which would be your left if your watching them face? Yea, must be.
Besides the obvious sweaty palms, rapid blinking, inablility to make eye contact..are symptoms of a liar, yet certainly non-liars can have the same traits.

Where or who came up with this fact Mauveduh? I assume someone did research, study clinics etc. Now I can't wait to test this theory..as for liars go...my family has some of the best!

Gosh, now I forgot my source. I saw it on tv, and their was some research behind it.

I've heard of other research on this and I'm sure the criminal justice department has knowledge of some of these techniques. I remember hearing about it during the OJ trial when I saw some clips analyzing his reactions.

Well, I suppose there are exceptions. I think it should only be taken as a clue that one may be lying. I'm not sure that it's written in stone.

Or are you trying to come up with excuses for personal reasons? ;-)

Ignoring eye contact, scratching anywhere on face are sign of lie.
