WHY DO PEOPLE LIE/HOW TO SPOT A LIAR
As a result, Duane Alan Hahn said that a Liar’s motto is “If at first you don’t deceive, lie, lie, and lie again.”
So Let the Truth be Told: Crooks lie, Criminals lie, Children lie, Parents lie, Husbands and Wives lie, News Reporters lie, Teachers lie, Lawyers lie, Politicians lie, Police Officers lie, Preachers lie, the Government lies and even you and I lie.
But can you spot a liar, if you saw one. Because the Lie is written all over your face according to Marc Salem, a leading authority on nonverbal communication and interpersonal skills, who reveals how to spot a liar in his book The Six Keys To Unlock and Empower Your Mind.
Here are a few hidden clues.
The rehearsed or practiced liar, who has planned his deceit ahead of time, will try to control gestures. Many politicians are coached to stay still during TV appearances. They keep their face inexpressive, upper body stiff and legs often crossed.
5. READ HIS LIPS
Look for unusual movement of the mouth, lips, or tongue, while discussing weapons of mass destruction in recent interview, former Vice president Dick Chaney bit his lips, sucked them inward more than half a dozen times.
Tight lips indicate you may be planning to keep the truth in. If you actually suck the lips in, you maybe withholding anger.
A dry cough or cracking voice is psychological response to the discomfort of lying.
When you are nervous your mouth becomes dry and you lick your lips and swallow as you struggle to find the right words to say.
Hands symbolically express the emotions of the heart which is why liars tend to keep them hidden. Research on handshakes shows that the single most important factor is palm-to-palm contact.
A smile is the most common facial expression to make emotions. If is often used to hide displeasure and anger.
Think of this as the super smooth salesman effect.
Look for nonverbal communication, which include voice, tune, volume, and speaking rate that sound overconfident. You can spot a liar by going with your gut impression.
Both President Bush and Condi Rice display this behavior.
9. CREATION OF BARRIERS
A liar tends to close off these entrances- putting clothing over them, turning them away from the person’s he is talking to, putting objects or furniture between himself and others, or simply folding his arms. When someone’s windows are closed, we don’t feel as comfortable with the interaction.
“The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.”
