FIGURE OUT A FIBBER
Body language expert Robert Phipps
reveals the tell-tale signs… 1/ Look into their eyes Most people avoid your gaze when they tell a little lie, but if it’s a whopper they are more likely to look you straight in the eye. 2/ See how they hand-le it If someone’s
normally quite demonstrative, their movements are likely to decrease, and vice versa, as nervous energy kicks in. 3/ Look down The feet and legs are the furthest from our brain, so are the hardest body parts to control. They act completely unconsciously most of the time, particularly when stressed, and
lying is stressful for most people. 4/ Spot self-comfort Most people will comfort themselves either as they tell the lie or shortly afterwards: crossing their arms, rubbing one arm around the bicep or rubbing the back of the head
or even the throat. 5/ Check out the mouth A dry mouth is a dead giveaway. Watch out for people licking their lips more often than normal, or biting their bottom lip,
as if to stop the lie coming out.
