Okay, I was trying to be nice and sugar-coat this one but if you are not telling the truth, it’s a lie. As Rev. Dr. Garth G. Gittens says, “a bent truth is a straight lie.” Here are the clues to a person not telling the truth:

• The person’s voice or demeanor becomes drastically different. If you ask a liar basic questions so they aren’t nervous, you can hear their natural speech pattern and intonation. If their tone and speech changes when they talk about the important issues, they may be lying.

• The person steers clear of saying ‘I’. They will do anything to avoid attaching themselves psychologically to the lie. They may speak in third person or use other techniques to do so.

• The person leaves no question unanswered. The liar rehearses their answers and they don’t have to take time to think about anything.

• The person is oddly very fidgety and fussy. The more nervous the liar is, the more likely they are going to squirm.

• The person claims they are honest over and over. They may even say, “to tell the truth” and claim their honesty in many different ways.
