What little things indicate that a man is lying: everyone can notice them

Behavioral features can give a liar away

Lying in a relationship is dangerous because it can destroy it very quickly. Moreover, the further people fall into the net of lies, the harder it is to get out of it. That's why it's important to know the signs that can give away a person who is telling a lie.

Men are more often blamed for the tendency to lie. However, women can be dishonest as well. OBOZREVATEL explains what behavioral anomalies and gestures can give a liar away.

Words say one thing, but gestures say another

Lying is more difficult than telling the truth. In particular, because of the feeling of shame that accompanies false words. That's why the psyche sometimes tries to protect itself from such an overload by some small actions. For example, a person verbally agrees with something, but his or her gestures indicate the opposite. A variant of this behavior is moving your head from side to side. Also, too much or unnaturally restrained gesturing can hint that something is wrong.

"Itchy" nose

This is another gesture that may indicate that the liar is trying to tame tension. When scratching the nose, the hand covers part of the face, and this can give the impression that the person is hiding from the person to whom they are lying. Lying can also cause a feeling of shame, which is manifested by redness of parts of the face, including the nose. Specific sensations, such as itching, may also occur.

Problems with eye contact

This is another mechanism to protect the psyche from the feeling of shame for lying. People begin to demonstrate this behavior in childhood - looking away when they lie to adults. With age, we learn to control this, but many people try too hard. Therefore, unnaturally intense eye contact can also be a sign of lying.
