11 Signs You Are Being Lied To


A majority of the people you talk to on a daily basis are big fat liars! A 2002 study conducted by University of Massachusetts Amherst found that 60% of people lied during a 10 minute conversation, and they told an average of two to three lies at a time. Luckily, fibs are fairly easy to spot with our professional lie detection training. When trying to figure out if someone is lying, you first need to understand how the person normally acts. Then you will want to pay careful attention to their facial expressions, body language, and speech patterns. Here are 11 signs you are being lied to:

They change their head position quickly

If someone suddenly makes a head movement when you ask them a direct question, they may be lying to you about something.

Their breathing changes

When someone is lying to you, they may begin to breathe heavily. It is a reflex action. Their shoulders will rise and their voice may get shallow.

They stand very still

It is common knowledge that people fidget when they get nervous, but you should also watch for people who are not moving at all. If you observe a rigid, catatonic stance devoid of movement, it is often a huge warning sign that something is off.

They repeat words or phrases

This happens because they are trying to convince you, and themselves, of something. The repetition is a way to buy themselves time as they attempt to gather their thoughts.

They touch or cover their mouth

When adults put their hands over their lips, it means they aren’t revealing everything

They instinctively cover vulnerable body parts

This may include areas such as the throat, chest, neck, head, or abdomen.

They shuffle their feet

Shuffling feet tell you that the potential liar is uncomfortable and nervous. It also shows they want to leave the situation.

Provide too much information

Liars often talk a lot because they are hoping that, with all their talking and seeming openness, others will believe them

It becomes difficult for them to speak

This occurs because the automatic nervous system decreases salivary flow during times of stress which dries out the mouth.

They tend to point a lot

The liar will get hostile because you have uncovered the lies which may result in a lot of pointing.

They stare at you without blinking much

It’s common that they break eye contact, but the liar could go the extra mile to maintain eye contact in an attempt to control and manipulate you.


How LSAT Works

The LSAT analyst uses our validated, researched technique to search the statement much like a crime scene. They locate "language evidence" that is associated with deception. The liar uses unique wording, phrasing, content, structure and quantities of information that reveal not only if they did it but also, when, why and how they did it.
