How to Spot a Liar
In this blog post, we try to outline the necessary steps that you can take to tell how people really feel.
1) Do your research.
Understand that there is no tell-tale sign that allows you to know when a person is lying. However, it is important to know that up to 90% of messages communicated in a conversation are nonverbal and that the most common place where these nonverbal messages are seen is on their face.
2) Learn Microexpressions through our MiX Training
Microexpressions are scientifically documented concealed signs of emotion. Everyone has them and they can’t be faked. They occur at less than 1/2 a second usually when people are trying to conceal or repress an emotion.
Take our MiX Microexpression Training– with images from just the frontal view. You can also take our Advanced Microexpression Training- which features images from all angles- frontal, profile and 3/4 side views.
Our training has been scientifically proven to improve your ability to recognize microexpressions in about an hour and has been proven to last even 3 weeks after you have completed the training.
3) Learn Subtle Expressions through our SubX Training
Subtle Expressions are expressions of a low intensity that occur in less intense emotional situations. They are oftentimes not full expressions, such as microexpressions, but rather partial more subtle expressions.
Our SubX Subtle Expression Training was originally developed for and funded by the US Government and recent research suggests that subtle expressions may be the key to learning how to detect deception.
4) Attend the Humintell Webinar
Many people often ask us what the next step is in detecting deception once they have learned micro and subtle expressions.
While learning these hidden signs of emotion is crucial to understanding how people really feel, it is important to know what other nonverbal behaviors to look for in order to evaluate truthfulness.
During our 2-Hour Evaluating Truthfulness Webinar, participants will learn how to improve their skills in reading emotions and other nonverbal behaviors.
