Changing pronouns as benign as it seems is the queen mother of linguistic violations and is a very strong indication that deception might be present!

For instance our house vs. my house

In many cases, if a person does not start with “i” the statement is more likely to be lacking credibility.

Consider that…

· The others were not significant enough to mention

· There is an emotional distance

· The author may be trying to conceal someone’s presence in the story

· The author is under a tremendous amount of stress

· We went to the store

· He and I went to the stores

· I went to the store with him

· they

· them

· their

· theirs

· us

· we

· our(s)

· it

· its

· myself

· Yourself

· himself

· herself

· ourselves

· themselves
