One aspect that goes alongside requirements for the mundane, non-[[AppliedPhlebotinum Phlebotinous]] LieDetector polygraph, is that there are certain elements that need to be in place for a person to register the normal signs of a lie. One being a baseline observation of the individuals behavior, someone who is naturally jittery means slight twitches don't really mean anything. Another is a threat of punishment, if you're not worried about consequences then you're either not afraid of the truth or you have nothing to lose.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': Terrence D'Arby's Stand works like this: he can read his opponent's soul, allowing him to always know when he's being lied to. The weakness in the ability is that he can only intuit yes-or-no questions: Jotaro and Joseph take advantage of the fact that just because Terrence knows they're lying, his ability doesn't tell him ''what the lie is''.

* The eponymous Takagi-san of ''Manga/KarakaiJouzuNoTakagiSan'' is able to tell pretty easily if the protagonist Nishikata lies to her. She does this through a combination of recognising Nishikata's tells (e.g. he tends to stammer or look away), a good understanding of his thought processes and deducing things.

* Here's a tip: if you want to tell if someone is lying, look at their eyes. If they glance away just before, during or directly after a statement there's a chance they're lying. Liars have trouble looking their interrogators in the face and will try and divert their gaze when they can. This is harder with women (who tend to be more socially adept than men) and easier with children ([[ChildrenAreInnocent who are obviously more naïve and inexperienced than adults]]). But it can backfire too -- many people are aware of this test, and will therefore make absolutely sure to look their questioner right in the face. Of course, if they suddenly stare directly after a conversation of only occasional glances, that's a giveaway as well. As with a polygraph test, the thing you're really looking for is a sudden change. And anyone with a form of autism has trouble with eye contact in general, so it won't work on them.

Plus eye contact is considered rude or aggressive in many cultures, so they might just be uncomfortable.

According to his blog he tried to tell them that when he was called for jury duty, and they patiently explained to him that ''that's not how that works''.

** Phantom Troupe member Pakunoda has her own unique way of determining if someone is lying to her by checking their memories through physical contact. Trying to trick her with a false memory won't work, because she always uses a loaded question to bring the true memory forth, meaning you either have to tell her the truth or legitimately not know the answer to her questions.
