Liars - how to spot one



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:


you,ll be able to tell that he,s lieing cos his lips will be moveing. i,ve never known an oc to tell the truth about promotions, or co,s for that matter......


'The cheque's in the post'

'I'd much rather go shopping with you than watch the footie'

'I love you'

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's lips move.

Harsh, but ultimately fair!
