How Not to Lie

Recent studies have shown that an average person has approximately 54% chance of catching deception. Here are some gestures to detect a lie.

Keep in mind each one of the following gestures should be used in context, and multiple gestures should be recognized to detect a lie. To detect deceptive messages you should learn to understand the following gestures.

Gesture #1 - Closed Hands
Closed hands can be interpreted as a sign of closed-mindedness, submission or defensiveness, which are all states of mind that can be related to lies.

Most people find it hard to lie while their hands are open.

Gesture #2: Locked Ankles
Locked ankles are interpreted as closed mindedness, submissive, or defensive which are all state of minds that can be related to lies.

Always keep in mind; leg crossing should be read in context and in groups of other body language gestures.
Gesture #3: Create a Barrier
A person who is dishonest may even use objects such as a bag or a cup to create a barrier between the two of you.
Gesture #4: Denying Eye Contact
Denying eye contact is often a sign of discomfort.

Usually people make eye contact for about half of the conversation, so if you notice their eyes constantly wavering, especially during a touchy subject, you may be dealing with a liar.

Gesture #5: Covering Mouth
Covering mouth is usually a sign of discomfort and can be related to stress.

When you notice someone suddenly covering their mouth or rubbing their chin, it’s usually a sign they are uncomfortable.
Gesture #5: Rubbing lower eyelid
Rubbing lower eyelid is like saying: “I'm not so sure about what has been said.”

The deeper the finger rubs, the greater the discomfort and disbelief with what is being said or heard.
Gesture #5: Touching the Nose
Research shows that, when a person is dishonest, they tend to touch their nose often.

The theory behind touching the nose gesture is to mimic the person covering their mouth as if they are telling lies.
