I heard that they're are 17 pantomimes of male liars and 19 or 20 for female liars. Does anybody know what they are?
Physical expression will be limited and stiff, with few arm and hand movements. Hand, arm and leg movements are toward their own body as the liar tries to take up less space.
A person who is lying to you will avoid making eye contact.
Hands touching their face, throat & mouth. Touching or scratching the nose or behind their ear. Not likely to touch his chest/heart with an open hand.
Timing is off between emotions gestures/expressions and words. Example: Someone says, “I love it!” when receiving a gift and then smiles after making that statement, rather then at the same time the statement is made.
Gestures/expressions don’t match the verbal statement, such as frowning when saying “I love you.”
Expressions are limited to mouth movements when someone is faking emotions (like happy, surprised, sad, awe, ) instead of the whole face. For example; when someone smiles naturally their whole face is involved: jaw/cheek movement, eyes and forehead push down, etc.
A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.
A liar is uncomfortable facing his questioner/accuser and may turn his head or body away.
A liar might unconsciously place objects (book, coffee cup, etc.) between themselves and you.
A liar will use your words to make answer a question. When asked, “Did you eat the last cookie?” The liar answers, “No, I did not eat the last cookie.”
A statement with a contraction is more likely to be truthful: “ I didn’t do it” instead of “I did not do it”
Liars sometimes avoid “lying” by not making direct statements. They imply answers instead of denying something directly.
The guilty person may speak more than natural, adding unnecessary details to convince you… they are not comfortable with silence or pauses in the conversation.
A liar may leave out pronouns and speak in a monotonous tone. When a truthful statement is made the pronoun is emphasized as much or more than the rest of the words in a statement.
Words may be garbled and spoken softly, and syntax and grammar may be off. In other-words, his sentences will likely be muddled rather than emphasized.
THESE ARE NOT THE EXACT ONES BUT THEY ARE WAYS TO TELL ALSO:
generally someone who looks up and left or left are lying. Someone who looks down and right might be lying because they are debating with themselves about how the should answer. Up and right or right are usually telling the truth as they are trying to remember the actual happenings. down and left is probably telling the truth and they are recalling to the best of their knowledge.

That is a quote from the movie "True Romance"...The character played by Christopher Walken says it in the movie... I'm not sure if there are actually a list of 17 -20 pantomimes...
I do know that people tend to blink a lot, fidget, touch their face...look around...things of that nature
I did and I found that same list. And yes it was from true romance, but I guess the only thing in that movie that was true WAS the romance. grrr.
