False Replay

Description

Replay their story to them, but vary it from what they have told you. Then watch to see if they correct your story.

You can make very subtle changes to the story and you can make glaringly obvious ones. Notice their response to each type of variation.

A person who is telling the truth may look a little frustrated that you have not quite understood what they say.

A person who is lying may look anxious as they try to stay ahead of themselves and not give the game away.

Example

So, you drove the car to the station...oh, sorry was it your friend that drove...what was his name again?

 

Discussion

A person who has told the truth will easily be able to detect most falsehoods in what you say (although they may miss a few of the more subtle ones).

A person who is lying will concentrate very hard as they try to hear what you are saying and replay their story to check for matching of detail. They may get particularly agitated and try to stop you using this method as they realize they may easily be caught out by this method.
