7 signs of body language can help you determine whether you can trust someone

Regardless of the conversation, people can't always control the message their bodies convey.  Understanding the basics of body language can help you identify red marks before you put your time and effort into dealing with someone. More importantly, it is the distinction between shyness and dishonesty when reading body language.  This is a great way to see if Miranda next door is really as beautiful as she pretends.


    In I've done research into the different red markers of body language, the purpose behind it, and how you can find out if you can trust someone.



§ They avoid eye contact or rub their eyes so they don't look suspicious.


Changing eyes are not always a sign that someone is lying.  But if you notice that a person is constantly looking away from you (often to the top left or right corner of his eyes), he may be a liar.  However, do not confuse looking down with lateral consideration. People usually look down when they try to remember something.  You can ask follow-up questions and ask them to reverse their story to see if they are lying.

 Most people are aware of this technique and try to avoid eye contact in the first place. For example, most experienced poker players rub their eyes during tricks to create natural movements.
 Healthy eye communication periodically wanders in different directions during conversation, along with expressions to respond to information.


§ They are always on the phone to avoid confrontation.


If you see someone's eyes glued to their screen all day, it may indicate their fear of confrontation or anxiety about text messages from someone else appearing at any time.  It can be worrying if your partner or friend suddenly formed the habit. For example, if they struggle to have a conversation during mealtimes and spend their time constantly searching for notifications, try monitoring what they're doing and confronting them if necessary.


§ They tend to stay away from you during conversations.


In general, people or couples tend to lean towards each other through their bodies, feet or heads during conversations.  If you notice a change in their gestures and the way they answer your questions, it may be a sign that they are hiding something. Sometimes, this mile away can  also be by default, as you have to wait more than 6 hours to get a response from them.  People may use this technique to distance themselves from you.

 This may also mean that someone is not really interested in the conversation and prefers to be somewhere else. In this case, try to avoid pressing the conversation too hard and accept that this person is not worth your time.

§ A quick flash may indicate their discomfort.


Flashing is normal.  But watch out for the unnatural flash, where someone blinks too much or too little. Repeated flashes indicate that a person is trying to pretend to be someone who is not.  Whether it's a false interest in conversation or lying, look for this behavior when you talk to others. For example, a experienced magician may blink slower than usual to pretend to act normally about the next magic trick.


§ They held their arms and legs to distract attention from them.


Studies have shown that 55% of our talk is non-verbal, and arms and legs are a large part of it.  Cross arms can refer to defensive or self-protection, while cross legs can indicate discomfort with someone. Hidden signs such as excessive arm enlargement may make a person seem more manipulative and commanding.

 People often use this body language unintentionally to distract attention from themselves. As for verbal communication, they avoid talking about themselves and are able to turn every question towards you.


§ They over-gesture their hands.


Using hand gestures is good when you talk to people.  Helps people emphasize their key points and keeps others engaged in the conversation. However, just like anything else, hand gestures are good when done in moderation.  In fact, research conducted in 2015 revealed that people who point with both hands are likely to be liars.  Overuse of hand gestures makes a person less believable and more tense. This is also true when their gestures do not correspond to their words and may give the impression that they do not know what they are saying.

 You can discover healthy gestures by noticing their hands. Ideally, their hands should be at waist level and used at controlled moments.
 Hand gestures also slow down when people stop talking.


§ Their voice cuts as they talk to you.


Watch out for voice changes during conversations.  Liars often move between ordinary voices to a higher tone than honest people.  Although a high tone or crackling doesn't guarantee they're lying, the high-pitched sound associated with other red flags of body language can help you determine whether you should trust someone.

    Have you ever encountered any of these red marks? If yes, how did you deal with it?
