    Great stuff!!! More of this please. I use both MIX2 and the SETT wich is a good way to begin to learn what facial muscles that are involved in each emotion. It is harder, i think, when these movements occur in a flow of facialmovments. Like in a real conversation. Not neutral-emotion-neutral like in these training programs.

    In the last video, which says ‘If I was a pimp, I wouldn’t do that’ at 00:20, after the guy says “17 or something”… Is it fear on his face?


  3. Did anybody catch the shrugs that Rusty made when being questioned by Chris Hansen?

    4:21 Chris asks “And what did you tell them?” and Rusty replies “I just showed them what somebody had showed me”…take a look at his right shoulder when he makes that statement. 2 quick shrugs. Not necessarily indicative of lying (although in this case it clearly is) but definitely a hotspot.

    4:24 Chris asks “And do you know how to do counterfeit money?” Rusty says “No, I mean just from what I’ve read on the internet and stuff” but he has a HUGE shrug at the same time…

  4. Daniel, Can you provide a link to the video you are talking about and we will take a look!
