A little bit of this and that…

Are your eyes telling on you? How to tell if someone is lying…

What is a lie? A false statement made with deliberate intent to deceive; an intentional untruth; a falsehood

I have seen many people pacify themselves into thinking that a white lie or small insignificant stray from the truth is NOT a lie. That is a lie my friends.

Since the beginning of time, people have lied, cheated, and stolen. It would be safe to say that at one point in everyone’s life, they have lied to someone whether it be a insignificant white lie, or a very complex lie. People throughout time have always sought a method or device to use to tell if someone is lying. The most renown lie detection tool is probably the polygraph, and even that is unreliable, and is not allowed to be used in court anymore.

Think about this. For every lie a person tells, they will have to invent two or three more to protect themselves, and sound more convincing. Not only do they have to create additional lies to reinforce their first lie, but they also have to have an uncanny memory because they will have to create additional lies that do not contract the previous ones. It has been scientifically proven that a person who is producing a lie rather then the truth, will utilize three different parts of your brain. Whereas a person stating the truth only has to utilize one.

So how can you tell if someone is lying to YOU?

Visual Accessing Cues – also known as “Lying Eyes”

“Visual Accessing Cues” are discussed by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in their book “Frogs into Princes: Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) ” From their experiments this is what they found.

visual cues

When asked a question a “normally organized” right-handed person looks NOTE:from your viewpoint, looking at them:

looking up and to the left

Up and to the Left
Indicates: Visually Constructed Images (Vc)
If you asked someone to “Imagine a purple buffalo”, this would be the direction their eyes moved in while thinking about the question as they “Visually Constructed” a purple buffalo in their mind.

looking up and to the right

Up and to the Right
Indicates: Visually Remembered Images (Vr)
If you asked someone to “What color was the first house you lived in?”, this would be the direction their eyes moved in while thinking about the question as they “Visually Remembered” the color of their childhood home.

eyes left

To the Left
Indicates: Auditory Constructed (Ac)
If you asked someone to “Try and create the highest the sound of the pitch possible in your head”, this would be the direction their eyes moved in while thinking about the question as they “Auditorily Constructed” this this sound that they have never heard of.
eyes looking right

To the Right
Indicates: Auditory Remembered (Ar)
If you asked someone to “Remember what their mother’s voice sounds like “, this would be the direction their eyes moved in while thinking about the question as they “Auditorily Remembered ” this sound.

eyes down and to the left

Down and to the Left
Indicates: Feeling / Kinesthetic (F)
If you asked someone to “Can you remember the smell of a campfire? “, this would be the direction their eyes moved in while thinking about the question as they used recalled a smell, feeling, or taste.

looking down and to the right

Down and To the Right
Indicates: Internal Dialog (Ai)
This is the direction of someone eyes as they “talk to themselves”. 

How this information is used to detect lies:

Example: Say your friends child asks you for some candy, and you ask: “Well, what did your mother say?” They reply with “Mom said… yes.”, as they look to the left. This would indicate a made up answer as their eyes are showing a “constructed image or sound. Looking to the right would indicated a “remembered” voice or image, and would indicate they are telling the truth.

Now Young Grasshoppers, go ahead and make a list of questions and practice on your friends, family members, or any one willing to be a guinea pig. As with anything, the more you practice the better you will get.

P.S.

A typical left handed should have the opposite meaning for their eye direction. Also, before you get started try to understand the persons base-behavior and actions before you conclude they are lying.

If your subject becomes crossed-eyed at any point during questioning then they are just as confused as you are. Practice, Practice Practice 😉

  1. Thanks for the pingback, Moni. Your discussion reminds me of one of my favorite TV shows. It’s also something we explored during my psych training. Good for you.
