What should honest people know about Liars?

It is important to be able to detect falsehoods and identify people who lie to you. Unfortunately, many liars are good at deception, and it is easy to get fooled. Here are some hints to help you.

Look at the person's body language. A liar will often avoid eye contact, cross his arms or legs a lot, and talk fast (to finish quickly). If you look closely, you may also see the pupils of his eyes narrow.

Many liars, especially those who lie habitually, will be overly friendly and laugh a lot. They do this in order to get you to like them. (You are more likely to believe your friends.)

Every lie leaves a trail. Look for the clues. If you suspect someone is lying to you, pay attention to your gut feelings.
