What do you mean by look to the left, what about if they look to their right??
Report as
If they look to the right they're recalling a memory. This is a bit odd. The left cortex of your brain holds the memory, so the person looks to the right. The right cortex of your brain is the imagination, so the person looks to the left. It's like vise versa.

You can tell when someone is lying because their voice will change when you ask them a question. They won't directly look at you or they will look to the left when answering a question.

Usually I can tell by their eyes! They won't make direct contact with you and then try to change the subject. Hard to tell on the Net, but some just give themselves away and don't even know it!

Just some points to find out, but cause the other said some of them so i can Just say some too,
1. when they're talking they have stress & they never look straight in eyes of that person who they're talking to
2. They'll repeat some Subjects over & over again,
3. Ask about details between conversion, so fast they'll gonna lose the sense, cause it's not truth , it's a make of mind so they'll give it up soon
4.When keep asking details, they'll come angry, "This is most usual really popular" it's kind of brain work & Psychology cause when you ask much, they're brain giving up on Real truth but they're sense wants keep that lie who pretending by truth so this fight between sense & brain will make them angry

All the answers are good but I would like to add, compulsive liars can look you straight in the eyes & almost never stray. It takes practice from what I hear.
