Liars - how to spot one

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Snips, Sep 9, 2002.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just found this on the BBC news website;-

    "People are really dreadful at detecting when someone is lying," he told the BBC.

    "They think that liars avoid eye contact and fidget a lot. In fact, liars maintain more eye contact and they don't fidget."

    "What you should do is look to see if there are long pauses between the questions you ask and the answers people give," he said.

    Other indicators of lying include the use of short sentences, and any fluffs or errors in a person's speech. Lack of movement can also be a clue to untruthfulness.


    So, I'll go to my OC tomorrow night and ask 'So, Sir, when am I getting my promotion?'

    If his reply is '...........................................soon'

    then there's my answer! :eek:

    Do you guys really believe that your OC has any idea of your potential to promote?  Come on, think a little.  He only writes your CR, not all of them

    Easy way to spot Tony Blair is lying....it's lips move.

    Harsh, but ultimately fair!
