A Layman's Field Guide to Spotting Liars

Good Day World!

Did you know your nose heats up when you tell a lie?

Watch someone closely if you suspect they are lying to you. Their body language will tell you all you need to know.


And, as for that hot nose...it begins to itch so the suspect starts touching and rubbing it.

That's called the Pinocchio Effect, according to professor Emilo Gomez Milan, who teaches experimental psychology at the University of Granada in Spain.

Experts say there are two types of liars: everyday liars who feel nervous when lying (sweaty palms give them away) and super liars (like Donald Trump for example) who show no sign of nervousness.

Six ways To Pick Out A Liar

Liars often:
Avoid eye contact
Look down when speaking
Angle their body away from the person they're speaking too.
Omit critical information
Get fidgety or agitated when pressed for details
Touch their faces, especially their nose.
Less apparent to the eye: Their heartbeat skyrockets and their pulse quickens.
Hopefully this brief field guide will help you to tell when someone is lying to you. With a little practice you'll be surprised how easily lies can be detected.
