Is it a Lie?

Can DeepWord Find a Fraud?

The simple answer is “no,” not for sure. But …

DeepWord can tell you if someone is creating messages that have some of the characteristics of lying. That doesn’t mean that the person is lying, though. Just that DeepWord has noticed a sign (or two) in their message that closes other views out.

And, DeepWord doesn’t call it ‘lying’. It understands that a message shows how open or closed the message maker is. In other words, DeepWord’s analysis identifies messages that allow for other perspectives and those that seem to impose limits on how you should understand the message’s meaning.

These aspects can be key indicators of deception.

Lying can be the most negative aspect of a “closed” message.
Complete honesty can be the most positive aspect of an “open” message.

So, how can you pick a liar?

There are some characteristics of lying that you may notice, especially when you meet someone face-to-face. Even if they display all the behaviors listed below, it still doesn’t mean they are lying. It is just that, when people are actually lying, they often do the following …

•  focus on details that are not particularly relevant to the issue
•  use general terms when talking about the matter in question
•  appear to be wearied by the conversation
•  touch their neck, face or ear when speaking
•  avoid showing the palms of their hands and touching their chest
•  use formal language
•  pronounce words precisely
•  copy the words that you have used
•  change the topic or follow you (gladly) when you do so.

Of course, the best way to prove that someone has told a lie is to have direct evidence of facts that contradict what they have said. At that point, they will really have some explaining to do.
