11 facts to help you easily identify any lie in using body language
How often do people lie? The study found that at least once sovrut for 10 minutes of talk time to 60% of adults. And, more than once.
body language expert Lillian Glass worked with FBI agents to help identify evidence of fraud. We chose the most revealing signs of the book lies Glass "The body language of liars."
1. A sharp change in head position
If a person suddenly moves his head when you ask him a direct question, perhaps it is about something lying. In such cases, "the head leans back or bully up, leaning forward or leaning to the side," says Glass. This often happens just before a person to answer the question.
2. Changing the respiratory rhythm
During the lies people can start to breathe heavily. This reflexive action. When changing the rhythm of breath, raised his shoulders, and his voice becomes more whitish. In fact, the liar "out of breath, because changing his heart rate and blood flow. Body experiences these changes when you are nervous and feel the stress - that is, when you're lying. "
3. A person stands or sits very smoothly
It is known that people twitch and fidget when nervous, but also need to pay attention to people who do not move. Perhaps this is a sign that the body is preparing for a possible confrontation. In normal conversation quite natural small, relaxed and largely unconscious movements. So if you see a tough, catatonic posture, no movement - it is often a serious signal that something is wrong.
4. Repeating words or phrases
This happens when a person tries something and convince you, and myself, says Glass. "He is trying to reconcile the lies in your mind. For example, he can say "I did not ... I did not do" all over again. " Such repetition - it is also an attempt to buy some time while going to his thoughts.
5. A person touching the mouth or covers it with
"This is a typical sign of a lie: people automatically closes her mouth when not want to deal with the situation and answer the question," - says Glass. When adults do that, it means that they do not tell the whole truth. They literally shut communication channel.
6. The body instinctive cover vulnerable parts of
This, for example, throat, chest, neck, head or stomach. "I often see this in the courtroom, where lawyers advise. Always clear when someone's testimony touched nerves defendant, if he or she closes the hand throat, - says Glass. - But I could not appreciate this characteristic symptom until it became a special agent of the FBI. "
7. A person shifting from one foot to the
The body takes over the brain, Glass explains. Such stepping from foot to foot suggests that the potential liar uncomfortable, he or she is nervous. It also shows that the person would like to go somewhere, to rid themselves of this situation. "This is one of the key ways to detect lies. Look at the man to his feet, and you will understand much. "
8. Too much information
"When a person says and says and gives you too much information - such as the one you did not ask - it is very likely that he was telling the truth - writes Glass. - Liars often say a lot, because they hope that this chatter or perceived openness to convince others to believe them. "
9. A person becomes hard to say
"If you ever watch the video interrogation of the suspect, who exactly is guilty, you will see - it is becoming increasingly difficult to say - writes Glass. - This is because the nervous system during stress reduces the influx of saliva that dries the membranes of the mouth. " Also pay attention to zakusyvanie lips or pursed lips.
10. The frequent finger pointing
"When the liar behaves hostilely or goes to the defense, he is trying to change the role from being interrogated," - the Glass. Hostility arises because a person is angry, that you find it a lie, and in such cases, it may start to stick a finger in your direction.
11. You look without blinking
When people lie, they will often avert their eyes. But a liar can make an extra effort to maintain eye contact - to control you and manipulate you.
"When people are telling the truth, the majority of periodically drive around the eyes, sometimes taking them. Liars may also use a cold, hard look to intimidate a person or to put it under control. " Also, on the other hand, it is worth paying attention to the rapid blinking.
