7 Signs That Indicate You Are Lying

First things first - this is not an article to give you moral lectures on truth and lies. Rather, it serves to make you realize that you may have been lying for the longest time now,

and are still not good at it. Your lies do end up getting caught because:

You are Too Afraid to Make Eye Contact
While you are pulling off a ludicrous lie on someone, you most likely would be apprehensive to make any eye contact with that person. This makes your lie all the more apparent to the person on its receiving end. It doesn’t mean that you have to stare in the eyes of your listeners while saying something, but when the span of eye-contact drops to half of the time the conversation lasted, they know something is fishy.

The Lump(s) in your Throat
You are clearing your throat a little too often while speaking or worse, you start stammering while lying. The listener doesn’t even need to try to figure out. The mellowing down of your tone is also quite a huge sign of you lying.

Body Language
The hardest job in the world is to make your body lie. There is always that something - your neck movements, the tapping of your finger tips or feet, the rising shoulders, the tensed up posture of yours - that give you away.

Being Defensive
Whilst you are always welcome to put forth your arguments in a conversation, those arguments have to be based on facts. In the event they aren’t, you will find yourself getting defensive. It happens because you don’t want to come across as a person very firm and confident about his opinion, precisely because you are not.

Umm… I Think…
Again, quite a common sign. Too much of the usage of ‘Umm’ or fillers in your conversation is a clear sign that you aren’t speaking the truth. While making up stuff, you do get jumbled up in your own words and using fillers becomes unavoidable. This is usual in job interviews.

Emotional Gestures
Picture this: Your girlfriend just gave you a birthday gift. You said your customary thanks, without stretching a bone on your lips and jaw, and then after few seconds you realized you had to smile at her. This is when you get caught; now she knows how you were so-not-looking forward to the gift and that smile was nothing but fake.

‘I Was Told By Him’
More than being a sign of you lying, it is a post-lying excuse. That’s what you saw when you are afraid that you just got caught. When you realize that the other person isn’t really buying what you just said, you pretend that it wasn’t your opinion but you heard it from someone else. This dismisses any doubts about you being true in the first place.

Working on improving the above signs can help you lie better. It is not a good practice to lie, but if it is absolutely necessary, why falter?
