Amanda Knox: A Hot Spot
Amanda Knox was recently interviewed by ABC’s Diane Sawyer in her first Primetime interview after she returned home from Italy where she spent 4 years in a prison after being convicted of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher.
At the beginning of the interview, Knox shows what we call a “hot spot”: an inconsistency between what she says and what her nonverbal behavior says. Can you spot it in the video below (between 16:00- 19:00) ?
Remember, seeing a hot spot does not necessarily mean that the person is lying. Rather, they are indicators of areas of concealed thoughts or feelings.
