How to Know when Someone's Lying

If they don't make eye contact when answering, or fidget constantly, they may be lying.


Look at the person's eyes. When someone is being dishonest, the eyes will widen and the pupils will dilate.


See if they fidget around with their hands or feet (ex. scratching their head, nose, neck, etc.) or touch their mouth and try to cover their words with their hand.
