A Good Liar

There are many things you need to know in order to become a good liar. These are a few.

There are many aspects to being a good liar. You have to know what to say, when to say it, how to say it and most of all, how to not get caught. Let us start back before the lie is even told. The first thing you need to know is what you’re going to say and how you’re going to say it. You don’t want to come up with something during the spur of the moment and have what you’re going to say come out with a bunch of “ummm(s)” and “uhhhhh(s)”.

Once you know what you’re going to say, you need to know how to say it. You can’t be sounding like a robot when you’re speaking. Treat it as acting. Put some emotion into it. If you’re lying about being sick, talk like your nose is stuffed up, or if you get a chance beforehand, tickle the back of your throat with your toothbrush (don’t make yourself get sick). It should bother your gag reflexes enough to make your eyes water.

The third rule about being a good liar is to not get your stories mixed up. I’ve seen this cause lots of problems in my day. Also, never change your story. If you tell it somebody one way, you better make sure you tell it the same way to the next person.

Last but not least, if you’re going to lie to somebody, do it alone. Don’t drag anyone else into it with you. This could either cause them to get hurt or in trouble, or they could let the cat out of the bag on you at any point in time. Also, don’t lie to somebody if the consequences could get somebody hurt whether it be emotionally or physically. The truth is though, a little white lie never hurt anyone.

    the acting thing is a REALLY USEFUL TIP*
    plus, if you have been lying for a long time also helps :)
    and DON’T OVER_EXAGGERATE!!!! people will know if you’re lying if you tell ‘far-fetched’ stories trust me. there’s this one dude that lies almost all the effin time, because they over-exaggerate
    or maybe i was just born with a built in lie-detector! lol
    but seriously dont put too much information in your lies because it will make you seem desperate for people to believe you
    hope this helps you guys! :)

    actually as long as you dont make it a habit, making a story sound a bit unbelieveable makes you sound more credible..as long as its not too outrageous.

    yea, people will not expect you to lie about something that would never be true so as long as its not to outragouse, exagerrating can help you.

    Well, if your friend beleives you, chances are they aren’t going to search it. If not, well then you’ve sewn your own oats, and will have to live with the consequences. Chances are you aren’t going to be able to buy the wrights to the picture, so either fess up, or hope your friend doesn’t find out.

    Ok, here’s the way I’ve been taught. The story is critical. Make sure you have a lie for every gap in your story. A story that has less gaps will help the story become more believable once the other person runs out of questions to ask about how this happened or what happened next; but do remember that the more complex the story gets, the more there will be to remember. It gets easy after a while. Another tip is to trigger the other person’s emotions. Bring out an ‘Oscar” winning performance while you trigger the other person’s emotions. These emotions are what they are expressing in the time of an altercation. For example, if some one is mad at you about something you are obviously lying about, throw something out there about you that they might like, this should help build a sense of sincerity and help build trust. For example: ‘ I would never lie to you, I’m the one person whose always been there for you; how could you doubt me.” Basically, manipulate.

    The key is not to think about it too much. Just believe that you can lie and you will be successful.
