When I think of a deceitful person, I think of someone who will do anything to get away with something. They have a weak decorum and lack of awareness and because of this, they are in denial about their actual deceit and how it effects everyone around them.
So, how do you recognize a deceitful person?
One way to recognize a deceitful person is how they speak of other people and the situation. Obsessing about it is one thing, however; running from it is another. If they obsess about the situation and the person/people involved in a negative fashion, it is clearly deceit. If they run from the problem and get agitated when interrogated about the situation and alleged involvement, it is a good chance it is also deceit.
For instance, if you hang out with a person who talks bad about someone they were just nice to and you witness them being friendly and polite, but when the person walks away the person you hang out with starts to abrasively belittle them, that is a sign of a deceitful person and more than likely they are doing the same thing to you. The facade they create is nothing more than a mockery which is often recognized by how the individual feels about his/herself.
Based on my own personal experiences with recognizing deceit in general, I have noticed that inferior complexes are true signs of a deceitful individual. Low self-esteem has a reflection on interpretation, but that does not mean the person is deceitful. Narcissism displays a lot of signs that connect to a person who is deceitful. If you notice an individual always putting down others around them, more than likely they are deceitful as they are probably doing it to you behind your back.
An individual who complains often about people they are friends’ with can be recognized as a deceitful person simply because they are brushing their negative energy in a two-faced sense. You may believe that individual has the right to complain, but I think you would change your tune if the situation were reversed and you are the person they are talking about. There is nothing humbling or modest about criticizing an innocent third party.
When a person answers you. When they say “no” do they shake their head up and down? Do they look to their left? Do they shake their head left to right? Do they look up to their right? When you ask a person if they are cheating? When they tell you “no” are they shaking their head left to right? Left to right is often described as a horizontal nod. If they do, that means they are being deceitful.
Real people stab in the front not the back. There is absolutely no excuse for someone to be cunning and calculating and luckily, you can become very much aware of this type of person when you discover them. Don’t be a victim of a deceitful person, recognize them before they try to enter into your life today.
