"Did He Really Behave Himself At This Year's Office Christmas Party? 6 Tips To Spot If Your Man Is A Saint Or A Sinner"
Author and persuasion coach, Tony Walker has been striking fear into hearts of liars and cheats this Christmas with release of his "Human Lie Detector" book entitled, Liar Liar Pants On Fire!
We are said to be lied to, on average, every ten minutes.
For most of us we even lie to our children. How many of us pretend Santa Claus is real in order to convince our kids to behave themselves all year?
Sadly, one of biggest reasons those close to us may lie is to conceal infidelity. And with alcohol-fueled, mistletoe entangled festive season now rampant, there are many more opportunities for man in your life to stray from path of fidelity than at any other time of year.
Often, lies that follow one drunken moment of stupidity can be more damaging to a relationship than act itself.
Just as damaging though is constantly accusing someone of something they didn't do.
As well as all good stuff though, it's well known that Christmas is also a time that sees more breakups, fights and arguments than any other.
So, if you don't want to be left wondering this year, here are 6 quick tips for calming your worries or confirming your suspicion.
1. AVOID CONFRONTATION If you suspect you are being lied to then should you confront liar immediately? I would generally suggest not. Often best approach is to note fact in your mind and continue with conversation, with a view to extracting more information.
This will tend to confirm or deny your suspicions without causing an awkward scene if your hunch proves false. Once you confront someone who has lied to you (or not) tone of conversation can change and gathering additional facts becomes almost impossible.
2. LOOK THEM IN THE EYES A person who is lying to you may do everything possible to avoid making eye contact. Others may make exaggerated and over prolonged eye contact in an effort to convince you of their sincerity.
3. LITTLE MOVEMENTS Hands may go up to face or throat, especially to mouth. But contact with body is limited to these areas. The liar may also be unlikely to touch chest with an open hand gesture. The liar may also touch nose or scratch behind ear. If he is trying to appear casual and relaxed about his answer, he may shrug a little as he talks.
