  • Once I know a person for a while who has repeatedly lied to me, It's easy for me to know the signs. If I don't know them wel enough, it's not as easy. I heard on the radio if people say I AM NOT instead of I'm not, that usually means their lying.

  • Huge signs: When the story doesn't make logical sense, when there are irrelevant details included and when the storyteller's eyes go up and to the right when they talk.

  • When they look to the left they are using the creative part of their brain indicating a potential lie. If they look to the right they are using the logical part of the brain. F they look nervous, they could be lieing as well.

  • Well, it has been my experience that two people you should trust most in the world have lied to me. I don't know if I trusted too much at the time, but I had no idea in the moment that they lied to me. Now, I assume everyone lies to me. Not to sound bitter, but.I never trust anyone 100%. If you think something is up, listen to your gut.
