The eyes usually give liars away first.

I agree with Ms. Khaki. I don't recall, but the eyes tend to go to the left or right if the person is lying...

I think it's the lower left, warrick.
I saw it on CSI.

Both. The face always gives it away, however, somebody stalling or the tone of their voice can also be a give away.

the voice usually first and then the face

Both, along with the body language.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Thursday 5/27/04 - 6:15:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Face

Face, I can pick out a liar like nothing.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 5/30/04 - 5:21:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both, I can usually tell when someone is a liar by the look in their eyes and how they speak.

my gut always tells me
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 6/16/04 - 9:47:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Eyes.

face, mainly eyes, derren brown said that when they are telling the truth their eyes go one way, when they are lying they go the other, it's proven very useful.

all my family members do something weird w/ their eyes
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 7/18/04 - 8:44:28 AM EST (GMT-5)
Their face usually gives it away.

Nobody can tell when I'm lying (unless, of course, they know the truth) because I actually believe the lie when I'm telling it. I know a few others that do the same thing and I can't tell when they're lying either (well, aside from knowing that their information is just plain wrong).

Aside from that, I don't focus on any one thing. There's overall body-language, and smell too (yes, people do smell different when they don't believe what they're saying).

Their face.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 10/25/04 - 9:18:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
the eyes and hands, look at those and its pretty obvious if their lying ot not
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 10/25/04 - 9:25:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Definitely the face!
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 10/25/04 - 9:26:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Depends who. i know people who can disguise both. this means trust no one.

More so the face, like if they look down and stuff like that, for some reason when i was little and i lied a put my tounge on my cheek lol.
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 12/28/04 - 11:25:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I focus on my gut feeling
15 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 12/28/04 - 11:35:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
Some studies have proven that touching the nose or the ear is an indication of lying. Also, if they can't make eye contact, that's another dead give-away.
