  • The best way u cud knw someone is lying is that dey cannot have eye contact wd u while speaking face to face. Gestures can fool us bt eye's cnt deceive. People who lie try to avoid u, r figitty n hv suspicious behaviour. Bt thru eye contact u can trace big liars its my true experience.

  • Only way in knowing if a person is lying or not is by knowing the person. Good liars can lead you into believing anything because they've had practice...notice the politicians? Can you tell when they're lying? NO...

  • The eyes will go up and to the right when someone is lying. Also, twitching, itching, shrugging, hands on hips, tugging on clothing or body parts, saying "um" a lot and rubbing the hands together can indicate dishonesty in a response.
    If something doesn't make sense, someone is probably lying.

  • Actually their eyes go up and to their left.

  • everyone has "tells" like little ticks that give them away when they lie. they change their voice. dont look directly at you. etc. everyone is different so you have to know the person to know if they are lying.
