Former FBI agent knows the answer to this question. Read his tips.
Joe Navarro, a former FBI agent: The best lie detector in the world – is your eyes. In the FBI, when they want to know the truth, they ask questions and watch how people behave. Try this method to your girlfriend, and we will tell you how to decipher her non-verbal responses.
1. SHE PRESSED HER LIPS
If answering your question, she pressed her lips into a tube, as if she wants to kiss you, take your time to rejoice. In fact, she’s just very nervous of your questions. By the way, the monkeys react to troubles in the same way. Continue the conversation. Perhaps you’re already a step away from the truth.
2. SHE WRINKLED HER NOSE
Imagine that you have a plate of something foul in front of you. You could not help wrinkling your nose. She responds similarly (at least transiently) when you ask her a question answering which she feels uncomfortable.
3. SHE SHRUGGED HER SHOULDERS
The FBI calls this a turtle effect. During the conversation, the interlocutor hiding his/her shoulders, as into the shell, is holding something back.
Your questions do not give the girl a burning desire to answer them honestly, so she unconsciously tries to destroy the visual contact between you. It is an instinctive gesture inherent to even blind people.
5. SHE CLEARED HER THROAT BEFORE SPEAKING
Hesitation in pronouncing the words does not mean anything, but if the tone of the voice suddenly changes and before answering the question, the girl needs to clear her throat – it looks like, something is wrong.
