First, can or does the person give a genuine smile?
It is HARD to give a real life smile when you are lying to someone. Obviously, the pathological liar can, but take out the pathological liars and you have a real actor who can genuinely smile and lie at the same time.
Next, I'm looking for "verbal immediacy".
Does the person answer me quickly, or normally? It's tough to lie and communicate quickly. The faster you talk, the less time there is to process information. When you're lying, it takes time to process information to make sure the story "comes out right."
This doesn't mean that people who respond slowly are lying. It means that coupled with other "innocence cues," I become more convinced whether someone is telling the truth or lying to me.
Most people can't determine whether someone is lying or not with any degree of accuracy. When crossing cultural lines, it's even more difficult to accurately predict whether someone is being truthful or not.
Sometimes experienced police officers show better than chance accuracy in deception but typically most people can't figure out truth vs. lie more than 55% of the time.
The reason is that people are looking at the wrong things.
They look at eye contact.
Fact is that eye contact isn't all that relevant in determining most people are lying or telling the truth.
Another cue people look for is nervousness, and yes, nervousness IS slightly correlated to lying but it's also correlated to being scared and afraid of being accused of lying!
Want to have a good guess as to whether someone is telling the truth of lying to you?:
Record the conversation and then listen to the conversation when you aren't in the presence of the person.
People who can't see the person who is talking usually are better at detecting truth vs. lie. Why? The vocal cues are some of the strongest to pick up on.
Because it is such a well-kept secret in the nonverbal community, there is one powerful strategy you can use to improve your odds of detecting deception.
Liars must construct their stories in chronological order. People who tell the truth will be all over the map.
The liar has to create a story, remember it in order and tell it chronologically. Because there is no actual memory to recall, they have develop a false memory.
The truth teller might often SOUND like they are lying because they are all over the map, but the fact is that is more likely to be a sign of truth than fiction.
Ask the person what happened in REVERSE chronological order. The liar won't be able to do it most of the time.
Now, you know how to spot a liar!
