Can deeper perception help you to spot liars? I think so.
Deception detection is the theme of a three-part interview here with PETE, an expert in this field. So far two of these interviews have been posted. Then discussion at our online community shifted towards exploring today’s brain fog.
Mental fog (a.k.a. “Brain fog” or “Clouding of consciousness”) might lead to behaviors that cause you to suspect lack of honesty. Really it isn’t, necessarily. So I’m glad that our conversation on this topic (for now) ended on a note of compassion.
Before releasing the final interview segment in the series, have I got a treat for you, Blog-Buddies! Today I’m excited to share with you a guest post by PETE about the promise of aura reading — in contrast to watcher-friendly YouTubes and other pop culture versions of deception detection that may not quite fulfill their aims.
Pete’s thoughts follow. Again I thank him for coming up with the idea for our three-part interview. Below I will add headings and links and minor edits. Pete adds his expertise, important if you have wanted to spot liars. Or to detect other types of deception in your business and personal life.
When You Aim to Spot Liars, What Is Credible?
The following is based on my experience traveling the world assessing creditability.
First of all, I want to clarify that deductive body language interpretation and micro-expression analysis is useful for observational purposes as they can be used to assist in developing a hypothesis of an individuals intent when implementing a holistic approach.
They also assist with identifying patterns. For example, perhaps Mr. Smith always gives a micro-expression of fear when I ask confront him about a rather important issue. This gives me insight as to an area of questioning or conservation that is obviously concerning for him. It does not tell me what the problem actually is or why he is fearful.
