If you have ever thought it would be great to realize if someone was lying or not – then check the article about the questions to ask someone to see if they are lying. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it revealing the secrets for us. At first the article will present you with a super-sassy hypothetical situation that will be followed through with 12 correspoding questions, their possible answers, and what to look out for, as you move further down the article. I am extremely curious if these things can work in real life so just for some fun, I will try them.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two questions to ask someone to see if they are lying from their list.
The first one is Research-based conversation starter: “Where did you go on holidays?” Even though you haven’t seen much of Tony since you broke up with his friend Tom, you do know due to the fact that you’re a FB stalker (in a mild way, though), that he’s been on holiday with his family for the last couple of weeks. This is a proper conversation opener that sets the ground for measuring his truthful answers. The second one is Make them lie: “Have you seen Ashley lately?” With this question you want to make him be untrue, so you can see his behavioral differences as to when he was telling the truth. Here’s where the incriminating info you had about Tony comes in handy. It turns out a little bird named Tom-your-ex told you -before he dumped you- that before leaving for holidays, Tony had been hooking up with Tina. The catch? Weeell… Tony is kind of a shallow what-would-they-think a**hole, and the word around is that Ashley has gotten SUPER FAT over the summer. Naturally, being the prick he is, he wouldn’t want people to know they’d been bumpin’ uglies, so the chances are he’ll get super awkward and answer something of the “Uhm, no, I don’t know… Uhm…” sort. Meanwhile, this will make him give away all his lying quirks and tells.
