We all know how to recognize the majority of signs that someone is lying to us when meeting face to face, but what are the ways to tell if someone is lying over the phone or text?
We are used to lying all the time. I don’t know if you have noticed, but each time some of us make some statement or tells a story, at least one unnecessarily changed or imagined detail is included. Who knows why? Maybe we want to make that story more interesting or get someone’s attention, but it is the way it is.
But what happens when someone is looking at us and still lies about some more serious topics? Sometimes, we depend on the information we are getting and lies just make it worse.
With paying attention to mimic and gesticulation, it is very easy to figure out whether someone is lying or not. Of course, it is a lot easier if you know a person very well. Some people sweat a lot, some people shake. My college professor also said that people are leaning to the right side and looking at right when telling a lie. Of course, not being able to repeat the whole story that someone said once is the most obvious sign of a lie.
But what if you are too far away from a person? When you don’t see them at all, just hear their voice? Or, even worse, what happens when you don’t even hear them, but just get texts? Those are just words, punctuation, and smiley faces. How can you tell whether it is a lie or not? In the 21st century, people usually pick texts when lying, just because of these reasons. They can already have written answers and just press the send button. They can also have enough time to think about the right answer.
One of the tricks is that people who don’t pay a lot of attention to details when texting are actually very punctual when lying while texting. Of course, the easiest way to tell if someone is lying over the phone or text is that the story or a claim has no sense whatsoever. By sending these kinds of messages, people who are trying to lie are trying to make you confused, but they are just uncovering themselves.
But let’s get to know the best 12 ways to tell if someone is lying over the phone or text.
