    I heard this recently and thought it very interesting .

    When you are talking to a person, and when that person stops to think and looks up to the left, it means that he/she is remembering something from the past. If he/she looks up and to the right, it means he is "creating" or making something up. That's how you tell when a person is lying.

    Have a good day!
