Pay attention to the nasal engorgement and itching
Alan Hirsch of “The Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation” in Chicago said that when a person lies, there is a specific tissue that normally swells up called the “Pinocchio Sign”. Hirsch said that this particular engorgement causes cells to release histamine which led the nose to itch.

If the other person manifests negation cues like covering or blocking the mouth, covering or rubbing the eyes, nose or ears, he or she is likely lying. Aversion clues also include turning the head or body away while making a crucial statement.
Keep your ears open for religious rhetoric
Phrases like “I swear on my mother’s grave” or “God is my witness” usually raises a red flag, better inspect more.
Often hear phrased like “trust me”, “honestly”, and “to be honest” are major signs of lying. It is considered evasive or the attempt to try changing a perception, these are just typical clues to lying.
