Want to know if someone you are speaking with face-to-face is potentially lying?
Now there is no guarantee; they may not be lying if they do this but 9 times out of 10 they ARE.
You see, eye accessing cues can tell you if someone is building a tall tale or just remembering their perspective on the cold, hard facts.
Note: If someone is speaking to you and they look up and to the left or directly to the left (without something running by to trigger a shift in attention), then they may be lying. When the person you are facing looks up and to the left or directly to the left they are CREATING a memory in their minds. When they look up and to the right or directly to the right they are remembering.
Eye Accessing Cues Quick Guide:
Looking down and to the left means they are accessing their feelings or something they physically built in real life. (Kinesthetic)
Looking sideways to the left means that they are creating a memory or thought (not remembering) something audible like a sound or a voice. (Auditory Created)
Looking up and to the left means that they are creating a memory or thought (not remembering) something visual like a movie, picture, color, etc. (Visual Created)
Looking down and to the right means that the voices inside of their head are going full bore, or they are remembering what THEY said to someone else. (Audio Digital Memory)
Looking sideways to the right means that they are accessing a memory of something they heard including something someone said to them, said to someone else, music, or any other kind of sound (Auditory Remembered)
Looking up and to the right means that they are accessing a memory of something that they saw with their eyes (Visual Remembered)
