How To Spot Lies – By Looking Into The Windows Of The Soul

Hey there, Steve here and welcome to this week’s private eye post. This week, we’ll be taking a look at how your wife’s eye behaviour can indicate she might be cheating.

#1 Baseline Behaviour

Get a good baseline of how someone’s eyes move.  You want to get good baselines for as many different situations that you can. You can look through photos and videos of your partner. Inspect your partner’s behaviour at your leisure from your smartphone. Remember, some of the behaviours listed below can be slight, or happen ‘in the blink of an eye.’  You may have to slow down the speed of recorded material to be able to see them.

#2 No Looking

Look online and you’ll learn that if someone stares at you, they’re lying. On other sites, you’ll learn the opposite — if someone is looking away from you, then they’re lying.

Confusing? Both are true actually.

People’s eyes move when they remember things. Usually, people will look at you while talking and then glance away to access their memories. So, it’s weird for someone to stare at you, the entire time they’re speaking with you.

Telling lies feels uncomfortable. Sometimes you just can’t look at the person you’re lying to. If your wife spends most of the time looking away from you during a conversation, and that’s not normal for her, that could be because she’s telling you lie.

#3 Eye Muscles

Look at what’s going on around their eyes. You might find an eyebrow, or muscle twitch when they’re lying. Twitches like these are unconscious and uncontrollable. It makes them highly accurate lie predictors.

#4 Where They Look

Where people look when they talk to you can tell you what’s happening inside their mind. People’s eyes shift left when they access memory, and right when they make things up. This behaviour is the opposite for left-handed people.

There are plenty of signs of discomfort people display when they’re lying. Eye behaviour can be a reliable indicator of this discomfort.
