Can you tell when someone is lying?

This article had a couple of interesting points: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/wray-herbert/how-to-catch-a-liar-cogni_b_844962.html

"One intriguing strategy is to demand that suspects tell their stories in reverse.

Another strategy for increasing liars' cognitive burden is to insist that suspects maintain eye contact."

I would imagine that would work with both kids AND cheating husbands!

  • I almost always know if my kids or my brother are lying to me. With everyone else, I think I'm slightly above par in terms of lie detection.

  • Tone of voice, talking to much or trying to make little of something, facial gestures and moving too much usually tell me someone is lying. Also if they can look me in the eye but the rest of the face seems to emotionless it's also a sign to me. Usually good at telling if someone lies.
