If Someone Is Lying To You, They’ll Surely Use One Of These 5 Phrases

Figuring out if someone is lying to you or not can be quite
complicated, especially since liars tend to be really good at it. The
words they choose are so precise that what they say sounds very
believable.

The
good news is that, precisely because they’re so cautious, many
specialists have been able to decode some phrases that liars use on the
reg to sound convincing.

So the next time you have doubts about
whether someone is telling you the truth or not, pay attention to their
vocabulary. These are some of the popular phrases.
 
1. “I don’t want to talk about it”

Someone
who’s lying will do whatever it takes to escape a conversation quickly.
Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting: Proven Techniques to Detect
Deception, says that if you want to put a liar on blast change the
topic, he or she will follow you the flow happily.
 
2. “I didn’t…”

To
convince you, a person who’s not saying the truth will be in denial
when trying to explain something: “I didn’t do that…I don’t understand
why you think that.” According to Meyer, “further emphasis on denial is
not necessary if someone is telling the truth.”

3. “How can you accuse me that way?”

The
intention of the person who uses it is that you feel the need to
justify your accusation, and you will, especially if it’s someone you
care about. Meanwhile, the person will have time to elaborate on their
lie.

4. “I don’t remember doing that”

People
who lie a lot claim that they have problems remembering things to
justify themselves and not tell the truth. But if they truly can’t
remember, they will at least make the effort to remember. A liar will
not even make the intent to remember.
 
5. “In fact…”

The
person who uses phrases such as “Truthfully,” “honestly,” and “I
swear,” are usually trying to convince you that they are not lying.
“When people use these statements to emphasize their honesty, there is a
high probability that something is hidden,” says Meyer.

Consider
these phrases next time you talk to someone and have doubts if whether
they are lying or not. But overall, trust your instincts. Don’t think
with your heart, think with your head.
