• When does a person lie?

    Absolutely everyone is lying. Some, of course, less, some more, and everyone in a lie may have their own reasons. In this article we will try to figure out how to determine when a person is lying, as well as situations in which a person can or has to lie.

    Often, people hide their emotions and the present attitude to any person. Although anyone wants to hear precisely the truth, it�s not for nothing that the phrase �Better bitter truth than sweet lie� exists, which has become winged. However, studies show that on average a person lies three times during a ten-minute conversation. How contradictory is the essence of man! But how do you know that a person is lying, or is it completely impossible? In fact, the truth is inscribed on the face of a man. In any case, so say psychologists neurolinguists.

    But before you figure out how we time, you need to understand why this is done, or what compels us to do so.

    Why do people lie

    It often happens that a person seems to be, like he did not lie, but he seemed to be lying. Or rather, I didn�t say it, or said not what he really thinks.It is believed that there are situations where a lie is not recognized as something negative, and even quite the opposite. She may be useful, and even fun. For example:

    • Lie to the enemy
    • A lie to the official, for personal gain, which is an honest way not to get.
    • Lie to salvation. Quite often used by doctors. Suppose a doctor does not speak about the true diagnosis of a seriously ill patient so as not to aggravate his condition.
    • They lie to those who are not able, for example, to perceive the truth adequately because of their views on life. If you tell the truth to such a person, the outcome can be unpredictable, or very sad.
    • Lie to play man.

    Mankind is accustomed to lying, because someone has imposed the idea that if you always speak the truth, you can forget about friends, work and personal relationships. If we properly understand the question of truth, then we can come to the conclusion that in many aspects there is no one truth. Each individual person may have their own truth, and this is directly related to the worldview of the individual. This fact was noticed in the 19th century, when the so-called �black and white� thinking was widespread, in which there was only truth or falsehood. The great minds of the time claimed that there was an intermediate state.That is, suspecting a person in a lie, it is necessary to subject the information, which he outlined to a comprehensive analysis, taking into account his particular situation. However, there are some certain cunning signals that we will now try to make out.

    Signs of lies

    So, how to determine if a person is lying? Of course, it is necessary to pay attention to the facial expressions of a person during a conversation, the position of his body, his hands, and also the speech itself.


    In that situation, when a person lies deliberately and wants to defend his position, he tries to look straight in the eye to find out whether you believe in his lie or not. In the opposite situation, if a person is taken by surprise, and he is going to lie so that he is soon forgotten, he tries to quickly switch your attention, leaving to the next room, or sort out the paper, trying to avoid eye contact. It's terrible if you mix a lie with uncertainty, so be careful. Watch for blinking while talking. The high frequency of blinks indicates that a person is under stress, and therefore probably lies. Although the same stress may be due to the fact that the topic of conversation is simply unpleasant to him.A person can be considered happy during a conversation if he blinks rarely.


    Now a little about the signs that will help answer the question: how to determine that a person is lying, according to the position of the body. If your interlocutor prefers to make any movements with only one side of the body, then, most likely, he expresses the opposite of what is actually spinning in his head.

    If a person retreats while talking, perhaps he is not sure what he is saying.

    If the interlocutor feels that he is about to be caught in a lie, then he immediately begins to get nervous and try to control facial expressions. However, the body remains tense. Pose can be unnatural. The liar tries to hide or fold his arms.

    Face and lips

    Let's talk about mimic signs of lies.

    If a person is trying to give joy for sympathy, then he can shake the corners of his lips. The same effect is observed when a person managed to fool someone.

    About the lack of confidence in his words, as well as an internal disagreement between words and deeds can speak pursed lower lip.

    An asymmetrical emotion or a distorted smile in one direction speaks of insincerity.Many experts attribute this feature to those who speak of an absolute probability of lying.

    Annoyed or angry in relation to the interlocutor can give a ragged chin, no matter how friendly the person behaves.

    Another clue of cunning is a surprise that lasts more than five seconds. If you see something similar with your interlocutor, it means that he knew everything beforehand.


    At the turn of the hand.

    Touching the neck with hands speaks about lies or agitation. This technique is quite often used in films when a man loosens his tie, before setting out a not too good news or lying. If a person clings to his throat, then it hints at the fact that he is afraid to express his thoughts (he seems to be trying to contain the words in the literal sense of the word).

    A person puts his hands in lock - hiding something, and an attempt to control himself, and not reveal a secret.

    Attempting to hide hands from sight (shove in a pocket, or put away behind the back) speaks of obvious lies in words.

    A liar may try to calm himself by stroking his fingers.

    As it turned out, the well-known tradition of shaking hands has its practical significance.If during the grip you notice that your interlocutor has cold hands, it means that he could be seized by the fear of exposure. However, the same symptom may be due to a lack of blood circulation.

    Speech signs of lies

    Also a liar can be identified by the features of his communication. There are a huge number of ways and elements of speech, which can determine whether a person is lying.

    For example, if your interlocutor speaks in a rather high voice, then it is likely that he is lying.

    If you suspect a person of being cunning, ask them to state the same situation, only backwards. If a person lied, it will cause him obvious difficulties.

    Also ask, specify the details, and if a person lies to you, then he will surely pierce, or become nervous.
