How to Tell if Someone is Lying to You

When someone lies to you, it's written all over their face. Think someone's lying? These tell-tale signs might give them away.

Eye movement: When right-handed people are lying they look up to the right. Left-handed people look up to the left. Other signs of lying include not blinking, closing their eyes slowly or contrastingly blinking a lot. Often times people who are lying will break eye contact.

Hiding body parts: Hiding your mouth, eyes or throat with your hands is an indicator of lying.

Grooming: A liar may also adjust their hair or clothes.

Hand movement: Anxiety about a fib can cause itchiness or chilliness in the face, causing a liar to bite or lick their lips or play with their ears.

Head movement: Liars sometimes move their head around quickly before answering a question.

Audible cues: They clear their throat or swallow before answering a question and their vocal pitch can rise.
