Verbal communication is itself a behavior, but one motivated by what a mind wishes to communicate. The person may lie, but they can lie with their other behaviors, as well (by, for instance, pretending that they do not know how to do something that they indeed do know how to do). In either case, observations are possible; in neither case is validity assured.
