Liar Speak

There are certain words that liars LOVE to use.  Here is what to listen for:  If you suspect someone is not telling the truth, there are some words to listen for.  Janine Driver, author of “You Can’t Lie to Me,” has a list of words and phrases that liars use a lot:

  • Left: A liar may say “I left the bar at 6″ vs. “I went home at 6.”  It’s less specific.
  • Never: Listen for use of the word “Never!” when “no” would suffice.  Liars tend to overcompensate.
  • That: Putting the word “that” in front of a noun, such as “that money” or “that woman” is an attempt by the liar to put some distance there.
  • Why would I do that?: It’s a favorite question of liars.  Its an attempt to buy some time to work out what they are going to say.  Listen for other questions like “what kind of person do you think I am?” and “are you calling me a liar?”

Keep these terms in mind if you think someone is lying to you.
