During police interrogations, various methods are used to detect lies. To recognize liars, you must follow this advice.
Would not it be great to have a portable lie detector and use it with whoever we want?
Unfortunately, it is not the case.
What we have, however, are our senses and our “intestinal feelings” that allow us to know when someone is lying. And of course, our attention.

How to tell if someone is lying
Although it may seem odd, lying is extremely common in humans.
Even when someone is lying, he may not do it intentionally. Of course, there are also people who do it blatantly and it is when it is difficult to realize that they are lying or not.
To begin, you can learn by analyzing the following signs that indicate the truth is not told:
1. Too many words
First of all, people who tell a lot of lies speak quickly and give more details than necessary. They do it to try to convince the person to whom they are lying.
This “word vomit” may be accompanied by excessive gestures and phrases such as “To be honest” or “I am completely honest with you now”.
Micro-expressions are facial expressions that can go unnoticed if we do not give them enough attention. They come and go in a second.
When someone is lying, he can raise his eyebrows, show lines on his forehead or make a repetitive motion with his lips.
If we are honest, we often tell the same story without changing commas. However, when we lie, we can use other totally opposite sentences.
For example, saying that it rained and that after saying that there was a bright sun is a sign of lying.
There may also be inconsistencies between words and facial or body expressions. If someone talks about something sad but he smiles, maybe he’s not telling the truth.
