One of the worst types of people to let in your life is a liar. Liars are people who tend to have cruel intentions and they aren’t afraid to stab you in the back when they need to; in fact, they plan on it.
In my life, I certainly could’ve used some tips on identifying a liar a long time ago. Liars seem to make their way into my life from left and right, and I’m sure everyone can relate to that! Liars are everywhere these days because every person is so fueled by a nonexistent ego and social status that they have to lie to maintain an essentially alternate persona. The worst part about liars is that they are extremely good at what they do. They know just the right things to say and the right strings to pull to get exactly what you want. If you have been repeatedly victimized by a lying person with cruel intentions, it’s time to stand up and know when enough is enough.
If you are tired of liars taking advantage of your life like me, you’ll be extremely pleased to hear that there is an effectively proven method that can be used by anyone to identify a liar. Liars are very similar in characteristics and traits, and if you’re informed enough you can keep them out of your life!
Begin by asking a series of random, and ordinary questions. Questions in which you already know the answer to work the best. Ask questions that people normally wouldn’t lie about like where do you work, grow up, or do you have any kids? Take note to the way they answer them, and pay close attention to how accurately they answer the questions you know the answer to.
After you ask each question pay very close attention to what the person does with their eyes. Eye movement is a very subconscious movement that can be part of an involuntary response when their brain is accessing certain information. When you are asking the truthful questions, take note to their eye movements. You’ll be able to tell when they tell a lie. You’ll see a pattern in eye movements with truths, and a random change when they begin fibbing. They might subconsciously look from left to right, or avoid eye contact in general.
After you have taken note of their truthful eye movements, ask them questions they might not typically tell the truth about like why did you leave your last job? Or perhaps ask them about your roommates’ money that went missing. If their eyes move in a different direction, they are probably not retrieving memories. They are likely drawing on another part of the brain trying to create a lie.
By making it a habit to pay attention to other people’s eye movements and truthfulness, you’ll eventually master the practice of being a lie detector. Sometimes people’s eyes can tell us a lot more than their mouth can. Give it a try.
