Body Language & Lie Detection
by Craig Beck
“Everybody lies.” (Gregory House)
It’s true…while nobody likes to be called a liar; the reality is we all lie! We are taught to lie by the very people who end up being most offended by the practice. Our parents tell us to ‘wipe that expression off our face’, when we turn our nose up at food we don’t like – they would apparently prefer us to pretend we do like it rather than admit the truth.
Occasionally we are told to use a different tone of voice – a nice one – that doesn’t reflect how we really feel. This is how we begin to learn that sometimes a lie can benefit us in the short term. As such the ability to lie becomes an important part of our communication toolbox.
What we are not taught is how to detect a lie – possibly the most powerful skill you can have. As part of the New Emotional Intelligence series, in this book human behavior and communication expert Craig Beck reveals the lie detection secrets of the F.B.I. and behavioral analysis unit (B.A.U).
Using these little known skills you, too, can become a master of reading the truth behind another person’s story. The knowledge in this book will have practical applications in all areas of your life:
- Interviewing prospective employees
- Price negotiation
- Dating & relationships
- Effective parenting
- Career negotiations
- And much more…
