Former CIA officer Jason Hanson has received extensive training throughout his career in the spy business. Now, he’s sharing some of the tips he’s learned with us on a few simple things to look for to see if someone is lying to you.
- First, use the “3-5 Second Rule.” Honest people answer questions quickly, while dishonest people may take a moment to think up a lie before they answer you.
- Honest people will try to help you, dishonest people will freeze up and try to hide
- Look at their feet. Subconsciously, people may point their feet away from you like they’re trying to get away.
Remember, none of these signs are proof someone is lying. But if someone exhibits several of these signs, that may tell you they are lying to you.
