This article will contain a good amount of tips that can be used to determine how the person you’re talking to really feels.
- Avoiding eye contact
- Stiffening; not moving as much
- Tendency to use words instead of contractions (The truth most likely would be won’t contrary to will not.)
- Tends to repeat things to assure your approval.
- Would be more defensive rather than offensive.
- Expressions normally include only the mouth.
- Exaggerates their answer; They answer in full sentences using your words.
- Take note of their voice. If their voice is more relaxed than normal (not relaxed as in stress less, but relaxed as in plain) they’re most likely lying.
- They use sarcasm often.
- They appear to relax a little more when the subject is changed.
- When they stare you directly in the eye, although they may appear comfortable, they randomly and quickly look elsewhere, than back at you.
- Fold their arms.
- Appear more comfortable when they look away from you. (Some people are shy when being confronted so this may vary.)
- Play with thier hands.
- (maybe) Get more serious than normal.
- If they’re a naturally sarcastic person, they might exaggerate their sarcasm. (Instead of, “What do you think I was doing?! Smoking cigarrettes?!” They might say, “What did you think I was doing?! Smoking Weed?!”)
- Their sarcasm isn’t as funny because all they’re focused on is changing the subject.
