How do you know when someone is lying? What do you have to look for to catch lies?

A lot of research has been done on this.And the painful answer: we do not know.

It has been investigated whether very experienced police detectives, judges, psychiatrists, psychologists, arbitrarily of the street-picked people, mind readers, emotion readers, psychics and whatever were able to expose liars.They scored at the chance level, so just as much as anyone else who was on the go.

A lie detector does not work.Proved that it also scores at probability level. May be in the cupboard with other larie cake.

What rest is that there are people who think they can expose liars.Not so.

And what rest is an endless tricks box in the form of ‘ Watch here, pay attention ‘.Nope. Nada. Does not work.

What does work: concrete evidence.But yes, we don’t always have that.

Many people think that liars are to catch up with something that someone is showing on non-verbal behaviour (see other answers).That is only in part true.

The greatest pathological liars are people who show little to nothing about such non-verbal behavior because they do not repent and have no fear of being caught on their lie, namely people with antisocial personality disorder.About 1% of the population has this.

There are also people who exhibit this non-verbal behavior, which resembles lying, but does speak the truth.People with, for example, anxiety disorders or very stressed and tense persons. You can therefore wrongly think that someone is a liar.

I would rather answer these questions with reverse logic.When you can catch someone on a lie, you know if someone is lying.

If the whole story and parts in the story do not knock, that is a heuristic method.If it is not consistent, is not consistent, is not verifiable, you know that someone does not speak the truth. For that, you don’t even have to ask questions, listen carefully and sometimes the only thing needed is to elicit information, for example by the Scharff method.

You have determined that something is not true, to be able to establish a lie, it is only necessary to know whether there is intent in the game. It is then a matter of knowing what the intention is for someone to share something.

An example from the film Scarface.

Liars often come across as unreliable, but it may be more important to know if something is verifiable.

“Doveryai, no Proveryai”

People lying:

  • Often sit on their mouths, face or hair.
  • Often repeat your question before they answer.
  • Answers vague
  • Do not talk in full sentences, but in parts
  • Often cannot tell details when their story is questioned or have to think remarkably long about it.
  • Often speak with an uncertain or increased voice
  • Sometimes consciously take a nonchalant attitude to hide emotions
  • When the situation permits, you could ask to tell the story or the situation backwards.

Boosting mental pressure strengthens the “lie indicators” when someone is lying. He/she needs to put a lot more energy into coming up with the right order when the story runs back ahead than someone who is not lying, and thus has less brain capacity to control his behavior.

  • Gives too many details or information you haven’t asked for.
  • Shows exaggerated honesty.
  • Really, I swear.

  • Shows exaggerated sympathy
  • Poses questions.
  • What do you mean, how do you know if someone is lying?

  • Often freezes that he/she answers.
  • Can react over-dramatically.
  • What? Tjeemig, really not. Nouja say. How to get there!!

  • Reacts sometimes hostile.
  • So, how can that think of me. That’s really under the belt!

  • Sometimes takes defensive stance.
  • Goes backwards, crosses arms. Makes itself big.

  • One of the things you can watch out for is someone’s reaction: If you are a real seasoned liar caught on a lie.The reaction is often exactly reversed from what you would expect. There is no repentance but there is aggression. If you run out of the conversation later, you notice that you have not actually answered your question at all, but you are especially confused than before, but too tired to go into it.

    Many liars use aggression and above all many words to say nothing but to make the other party so tired that it can no longer think clearly.They will not let them go-“just keep up”-and then they will ask for examples or whatever.

    Another thing that you will often notice is that at the end of the conversation you are defending yourself because the person has made you so uncertain that you do not know what to do with yourself.Or that the whole situation is reversed and the person now accuses you.

    But never forget to listen especially, listening is tremendously important because you can also have it wrong.Talk about it, and try to get out.

    Body language of course but that is obvious the movement biscuits of the eyebrows the eyes clipping the head around playing with the fingers the unconscious movements hurry spasms of the neck hands shoulders everything actually if you can not sit quietly and answer it and if I say it may be spastic to move the was last something on a man’s TV and they also asked you know where that lady lies and who did very convincingly no nod who had them body language very well under control but he could poly Eleven do not imply, at the end of the sentence, just to nod a little yes.

    So basically basic reading then you also have people who when they go lying have a certain scent some can not let it to make noises to consciously of course other yes me there well say there you see it that come in with an aura of self-assure The arrogance and at the moment you ask a question they do not want to answer comes a silent aggression from which sticks like a knife and then you know you have

    Then there is another species that are often called pathological liars only who are not pathologically Th who have a coolness because those think they are better like everyone and that they can therefore walk those dicks through under that have coolness Do not come within those have often already committed several murders yes also in Holland or several rapes that have always come away with it and otherwise they will be redeemed by Daddy and who have a kind of self-satisfied column also cool smile that does not Smiling is on their face and when you see it it’s a matter of not going to talk not going to ask that hard go do just opposite it sit down the same laugh you put on your beak and keep sitting and see who is talking first see who is the greatest E Psychopath is he or you are usually that by the way men are sometimes also called a woman but mostly men

    Side note I was not allowed to recherch茅 because I had tattoos

    It’s very easy to catch someone on lies.This is also the only way to determine if someone is lying. Catch.

    Then there is a grey area.Here you can easily determine whether someone fabulates, tells fantasy stories, but often there is a core of truth.

    Lying is an art that we all have to learn to master him well.Funny the experience if you are lying effortlessly the first time and one does not doubt your words. It does desire for more.

    Being able to detect if someone is lying is sometimes tricky because there are many exceptions.I myself learned a lot from Paul Ekman with his micro-expressions. “If the expression on someone’s face knocks with what one is told, a truth is told.” In addition, the series ‘ Lie to me ‘ is very interesting and instructive.

    There is only one way to determine whether or not someone is lying with some scientific knowledge.

    Record the conversation with a high-speed camera and search for micro facial expressions.

    I see all pseudo-things, even from a real psychologist.I do not exclude the fact that this person is very good at exposing lies, but for the same money that man is very good in self fapping.

    I read for example as symptom asking against questions.

    That may be true, but intelligent people and people with a little education or interest in psychology or who have been to the shool will of course ask questions.Course! So what this gentleman describes as a symptom of lying is for me a symptom of intelligence…

    People who feel badly at ease will show that in a lot of different ways.And people who sometimes lie (EVERYONE is lying SOMETIMES) and do not feel well at ease, will show that in exactly the same way.

    Occupational liars know themselves, know how people react and above all, can reasonably well estimate who they have for themselves.They can easily fapping you because they have some idea what you are doing. But hiding microexpressions is almost impossible.

    So: If you see someone doing the typical things you associate with lying, you don’t really know anything yet.

    Hat you for so-called “demasks”.
