Step 1: Eye Movement !

Well here you will learn the first and most important part of professional lying !

Eye Movement is what exposes 40% of liars and if you are smart and know how to recognize this you have a huge advantage over them.

Ok, let's begin :
1 When a person is Lying his eyes will role left , When a person is telling the truth his eyes usually role right ! Why ? When somebody is lying or telling the truth 2 different things happen in the brain !

A lie creates a left eye role because usually that's what happens when a person is accessing his front brain creative lobe the blue part of the brain shown in the image ! And When a person is telling the truth he's brain is accessing the back memory lobe (the red part) creating a right eye role !

These are natural reflexes of the human body and very few people know how to master them !
But trough practice you may learn how to control these movements and become a professional liar !

Left for who ? you or the person whose lying?
Oh, and the last step, what if the guy recorded the conversation (I plan on doing it hehehehe)? The guy usually tries to conceal he's telling a lie, but that gives him away because it's just overdose. Any signs of shame = LIAHAHAHAR!!! lol, but some small things happen that you overlook, like a smirk or the guy keeps smiling (which is actually quite suspicious) or he goes "uuuuh" for a long time (which means he/she is a bad liar). Best way to lie is to predict all possible and I mean ALL possible scenarios when you answer a question. It's what I do. Something like, "let's see, what would I say.... OH there, and if this happens...." stuff like that. I'm good at lying. Oh, and last thing about spotting a lie: they try to get a curious-like look on their face when they lie to make it look like they don't know anything about it. Good Day!
 What if the guy is still asking you proof?

Please, SOMEONE clear this up for me. With the eye movement, are we talking about the listener's perspective or the liar's perspective? So, if the liar moves his eyes right, and the listener sees it as left, then that's a lie... and vice versa? I'm so confused
its the viewers perspective so if hes moving to the left its acctually the right

um, you got your eyes backwards dude. It's the exact opposite. lying=right=creative part of brain, truth=left=visual cortex. Look it up, i think you just got mixed up from the perspective. adn im also quite sure that the two parts of the brain are divided by right/left side not fron/back.
i think hes just trying to make it easier t understand. To the person being lied to, it looks opposite.

in step 4, my friend would say "no, i know you said... because i never make anymistakes, but you dont seem to know what you say, look, i even have a witness that you said..." then he looks at a random person that wasnt even there, and somehow visually says "agree with me" and guess what, they agree. that guy has serious problems, i dont even know why im still his friend, anyways... -gamer

The eye rolls are backwards. The left eye rolls are lies and the right eye rolls are truth. You access different HALFS of your brain (left and right) not front and back. The right = left brain which is reason and the left = right brain which is fabrication and imagination.

I've been told that most left handed people look the other way. the 1st place I remember hearing this was: Brad Smith's speech "How the FBI uses NLP on YOU!" (at Defcon14)

While this is interesting, and there is scientific truth to much of this--yes, we all do behave differently when lying vs. 'truthing,' there's also really good reasons why none of these 'tells' are very accurate.

--Eye Movement is what exposes 40% of liars? I can do better by flipping a coin.

--You're unlikely to have a 'baseline' of the persons behavior (why parents are so good at knowing when their children are lying--they have a very good idea of normal eye activity, etc.)

--People react differently under stress. It's Very difficult to differentiate stress caused by " Why is this person scrutinizing me? " VS. " I must concoct a believable lie. "

--Personal responses vary. Some people have greater eye movement when lying, some less. Some folks fidget, others are more controlled and still when lying.

--Last, and most important: You are very likely not an unbiased observer, so your conclusions will be colored by your own preconceptions of the person.
I think you're exactly right, especially about the "baseline" part. Darren Brown used to do a segment every now and then where he would sniff out lairs, sometimes without even having them speak aloud. He did it by having them come up with three things -- two truths and one lie. After that, he'd just look for the "odd one out." That is, if they did something two of the times but not one of them, or did something one time, but not the other two, he'd pick that as being the lie. Basically, he was just looking for when they did something different. Another fun fact -- most of the time, when people want to lie to you and make you believe, they will look you straight in the eye. If they want to lie to you, but they haven't had much time, they'll more likely look to the left as this instructable says. But that's just my experience, and the idea of biases (especially the conformation bias) makes a big difference.
In the same vein, I've heard that 'bluffing' poker players tend to make direct eye contact, also. Sort puts in question the old 'look me in eye when you say that' litmus test. They are also generally more 'aggressively casual.'
What if you stare right at them, lying or not?
Intimidate the crap out of 'em, I guess. That's when innocent people start acting strange, too. I don't doubt you can sometimes tell if people are lying. But usually that's called a 'gut reaction.'
