Lie is one of the most awful things in the world. It ruins lives and relationships, and make people lie again and again. Some people lie so perfectly, that it’s almost impossible to understand it. However, there are some methods that can help to do it.
Today, we have prepared something special for you. Here are 15 reliable methods to uncover a liar. In this way you’ll easily understand that someone is trying to deceive you and won’t get on the hook.
No one likes when people lie to them and think that they are able to fool them. Unfortunately, not everyone is always honest with us. That’s why it is important to learn to uncover a liar. Let’s start.
When we are telling the truth, our gestures happen together with the facial expressions. Moreover, these expressions are usually symmetrical. That’s why when somebody lies to you, you will notice it at once.
#2 Pay attention to the eyes
When people are lying, they are trying to do everything possible to make you believe in their words. They will look directly into your eyes longer than usually. In this way they will seem honest.
#3 Look at the smile
The liars usually try to look friendly. They don’t want to look suspiciously and want to hide other emotions. That’s why they smile a lot while lying to you. Of course, many people smile while talking.
But the liars’ smiles are faked. When people smile sincerely, the corners of their mouths are upturned, and the crow’s feet appear near their eyes. However, when someone fakes their smile, they forget to fake the eyes.
Yes, there are really skillful liars that are able to fake their smile and facial expressions. But even they aren’t able to conceal real emotions. If you ask them some questions, they will get confused, and you will see their real emotions.
#5 The chin
We have already mentioned that liars usually try to fake their facial expressions. That’s why you should pay special attention to their face. For example, when they are trying to seem angry or sad, their chin muscles start moving.
#6 An echo
It is a little trick for you. The liar will repeat your questions. In this way you can easily undercover a lying person. Ask him or her a question and if they repeat it, you’ll immediately understand that this person isn’t honest with you.
The liar will always provide you with a great amount of details to make you believe in their words. They think that if they describe the full picture in detail, you are more likely to believe in it.
#8 On the defense
You should also pay attention on the way the person speaks to you. When someone uses defensive tone, where it is unnecessary, you should be careful. They are probably lying to you and feel a need to protect themselves.
We have said that liars provide us with numerous details. These people are perfect storytellers. These stories have long introductions, and since they are packed with deets, there is a lack of emotions. Liars just forget about them trying to tell a more believable story.
Their main task is to make you believe in their lie. That’s why they are extremely careful with the words. Their speech is smooth, and they choose the words thoroughly to make their lie more convincing.

#11 They are trying to seem honest
To make their words more convincing, and to make you believe that they are honest, liars use such words as “honestly”, “believe me”, “I swear”, and stuff like that. Just pay attention to this small detail.
#12 Personal space
Yes, personal space is important for everyone. However, liars need lots of it. For example, if you have noticed that he or she is moving aside trying to get more space, or creates some physical barriers putting something between you, this person is probably trying to conceal something.
#13 Tap, tap, tap
When people lie, they feel nervous, unsafe, and sometimes even guilty. They want to run away and get rid of these feelings. Because of this pressure the liars can tap with their fingers, feet, or something else.
Liars usually feel discomfort while lying. That’s why they may cross their arms, hands, or ankles. In this way people can feel more protected in front of us. Such positions give them an opportunity to be more confident.
#15 Nervous tic
All people are different and have different habits and peculiarities. We all have our own small nervous tics. Somebody touches their face, others bite their nails. Anyway, due to these things it’s much easier to undercover a liar.
So, as you can see, everything is not as difficult as it seems at the first sight. You can easily undercover a liar. It’s just necessary to be attentive and look at the details. Lying people always give us hints without even knowing it.
