Tells

Some really interesting tips for detecting liars.  A lot of stuff here that I hadn’t thought of before but they’re really intuitive and make you realize the many ways people can clumsily go about trying to deceive.  A few I found particularly worth note:

• Timing and duration of emotional gestures and emotions are off a normal pace. The display of emotion is delayed, stays longer it would naturally, then stops suddenly.

• A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.

• A liar will use your words to make answer a question. When asked, “Did you eat the last cookie?” The liar answers, “No, I did not eat the last cookie.”

•A statement with a contraction is more likely to be truthful: “ I didn’t do it” instead of “I did not do it”

• If you believe someone is lying, then change subject of a conversation quickly, a liar follows along willingly and becomes more relaxed. The guilty wants the subject changed; an innocent person may be confused by the sudden change in topics and will want to back to the previous subject.
