Everyone has a "tell", the thing that gives away that they are lieing. So, what is Your "Tell"

Well, you have one unless youre a Sociopath LMAO... So, what is Yours?

Mine, oddly enough, i never noticed i did it, but when i tell a blatent lie, i don't look people in the eye. My gf told me that and My friends all said it's true, which explains why when i lie, NOONE believes me.

    I tend to stutter and talk in circles. Even if I have the lie all planned out and know exactly what I am going to say, it never comes out right.

    Oh it's easy to tell when I am lying. I do more than one thing. Like you, I am unable to look a person in the eye and I can't keep a straight face. I will actually start giggling or at the very least throw on a half smile. I also turn red faced. So yeah, I might lie, but I never get away with it!

    Well, sometimes I can be a bit sociopathic, I guess, because I've told some pretty blatant lies and no one knew I was lieing, but typically I can't keep a straight face when I do it. Though, if I were to lie to you about something small, you might never know...I'm just that good.

    when i answer a question with a lie and the other person just looks at me silently waiting for me to come clean or overreact because they think im lying i open my eyes up big and raise my eyebrows like "can i go now?"

    I have a couple different things I do when I lie.Although I myself never notice but have people tell me all the time.

    -I tend to laugh when telling the lie

    -I tend to stutter

    -I tend to repeat things that I already said

    -I will start to fidget with anything around me(my hair,my

    fingers,paper,pens...etc...)

    That's common and it's mine as well. Eye contact is important. If somebody doesn't make eye contact with you, it's hard for me to trust what they are saying.

    Here's another clue. If you ask a simple, direct question to somebody, and they pause and repeat your question?? Nine out of 10 times, they are lying! lol

    I don't have a tell. I'm a straight-faced poker player (not a sociopath, as is commonly believed).

    I'm a terrible liar. I can't keep a straight face. I begin to smirk and before I know it, it's a full blown smile and then I'm caught.
