These Tips Show You If Someone Is Lying To You
Whenever someone tells me something, I believe it because most of the time, I don’t see a reason for people to lie to me. Call me gullible, or call me naive, but it is, what it is. I’m a horrible liar, and I find it challenging to do so. That could be the reason why I believe a lot of what I hear from people.
My experience has taught me to look deeper into what people tell me.
A Quote from Robert Evans says it all:
“There are three sides to every story: your side, my side, and the truth.”
Here Are A Few Things To Consider
It’s not always about lying. Now, when I thought about this issue, I came up with the following:
People May Not Be Lying
When someone’s telling you their part of the story, they may not be lying intentionally. What could be happening is, they are telling you the way they remember it happening, especially when telling a story after a long period.
So, from their point of view, they are telling the truth. Unfortunately, the person thinks this is what happened, but the reality is something different happened.
People Experience Things Differently
People may have had the same experience but perceive it differently.
For example, two people could be riding in a cab where the driver is driving extremely fast while swerving in and out of traffic and creating a dangerous situation.
One passenger is having the time of their life enjoying the experience, while the other is terrified to death and shaking uncontrollably.
Each would tell the story from their perspective of the same event.
