Lies


People who tell lies usually speak in the subjunctive mood and say things like “I should have…” or “I probably would have been… if…” or “I could have but I did not.” The subjunctive describes nothing, but creates an illusion, a diversion and distraction, a smoke screen, a fable, things that do not exist.

To spot a lie, ask direct questions that require a direct Yes or No answer. If the person replies by saying “Well…” instead of giving a direct Yes or No answer, then that person is lying.
