1. Taking long pauses
Subodh Bhave plays Vikrant Saranjame in Zee Marathi’s popular show Tula Pahate Re. He is conniving soul, probably sent down from hell. Vikrant is a liar and a killer, but his manipulative ways have made his family and friends believe that he’s a saint.
Watch the latest episode here.
Well Vikrant may be a skilled liar but if his wife Isha (Gayatri Datar) had been paying attention to detail, she could have spotted that he has been fooling her all along. Yes, there are ways to tell if one’s lying and one sign is when the person takes long pauses while telling a story.
Liars are obviously telling a made up story, hence when they take long gaps or pause a lot to think about what to say, you can tell that something’s not right.
2. Shifting of eyes
Some research suggests that if a person looks to the left a lot, he or she may be lying. This is because one is trying to construct a story, as opposed to looking to the right, where one usually tries to remember an incident. Also, if a person is not looking directly at you while talking, it could be a sign of lying.
3. Over gesticulating
4. Change in rone
5. Becoming still
6. Expressions fail to match words
You can tell something is off when a person is saying something, but the body is telling you a different story. Observing the body language is key to spot a liar. For example, if you gift something something and they say they love it, their body language also should match the statement. If they are frowning or there’s a change in their voice, you know they might be lying.
7. Adding excessive details
As liars build up their story, they tend to add excessive and unwanted details to make their story believable. Watch out for this sign!
So, now that you have all the information, would you be able to spot a liar successfully? Tell us a silly lie that you have ever told, in the comments section below.
