well i asked this question because i tried to out my guilt if that person is really sincere in what she says,because when i talked to her i knew in myself that im true to her, but when she talks to me i knew it that still there is anger or the sorry that comes from her mouth is not sincere!!!!

hmmm,. well if that words came out easily on her mouth, then i think it was sincere, in my own opinion sincere apology doesn't came out easily, it will take courage, and requires setting down the pride, "SORRY" is a short word but hardly spoken. You'll know that a person is sincere to what he/she says if she/he is not the kind of person who does things that she/he did..

I believe if a person is sincere they do what they promise. They are willing to listen and they do what they are saying. Sincere is associated with honestly. And you will feel if a certain person is sincere. You will know through her actions if she really do what she is saying. It is like being true to themselves too.

If I am talking to a person I can easily detect if what they were saying is pure truth or pure lies. I can detect it by watching more closely with their movements, the way their eyes look at me,if they are lying I can see it in the eyes. But I have one friend that is good in lying and he can even used his eyes to look like he is exactly telling the truth. But then this friend of mine has not done any serious problem to me yet like lying with some big mistake or something. So even though he is good in lying I am confident that he wont literally used it against me. Such a good friend of mine.

If a person look at the top left,then calls on visual memory and "extracted" things from memory If look right above means just invent,create things...(nerve center of the imagination is in the right brain hemisphere) Do a little test think about who the last time you talked on the phone? where you moved your eyes?

Personal experiences, plain and simple. There are people that I know that would never really tell a lie. They tend to mean what they say and say what they mean. These people, I would trust about as much as a person should trust someone. Not completely beyond all reason, but without too many regrets. I think that a person who tells the truth and can back up what they say, they will get that reputation that you know that they are sincere. Then again, on the other side of the fence, you got those people who you can tell that they are lying by the fact that they open their mouth. They seem to change their story constantly, sometimes multiple times without a conversation. I think that its very hard to tell sincerity until you really know a person and have had constant experiences with dealing with them on a day to day basis.

hi jemaires when I need to know if someone who is talking to me is really being sincere I watch their face and whether they will 'look me in the eye or not.If they look away nine times out of ten they are not sincere at all.So if I do trust them just about all the time mytest was right on, they did not mean one word of what they had said to me at all. If a person looks at me straight own and does not deviate I am quite certain that that person is very sincere and is not hiding anything at all.

It is hard to tell when someone is lying but there are little tell tale signs, sometimes they will not look you in the eyes, or they cough after saying their piece, or their eyes will blink a lot, you can sometimes tell if a person is angry by the look in their eyes, if you have known someone for a long time then you can sometimes sence they are not telling the truth.

i don't think you can tell,unless they are really rubbish liars,if they sound sincere then you just have to trust what they are saying,unless you're like me and don't pay much attention and take everything everyone tells you with a pinch of salt

She means what she says if she's sincere. If not, then she clearly isn't. A person can fake his/her face or gestures but sometimes, what your gut feeling says is actually the real truth. You just have to be observant about the person. She may not be sincere when she says things to you, but when she calms down and gets a hold of her emotions, then its more likely that she's sincere already.

Sincerity can be seen from the eyes. Well I just look directly from the eye, if she/he is hesitating to look at you directly, then she/he might be hiding something. But still there are people who can look at you in the eye and do it without hesitation. But most people can be caught from the way they look at you.
