I’ve been researching articles where parties claim to being ‘experts’ in finding out if someone is lying or not. There are a variety of sources such as TV shows, internet articles, and YouTube videos where we can find these so-called experts. Consumers seem to be very entertained with the idea of these experts and lie-detection skills.
Ideas to spot a liar at work
The article, “How to Spot a Liar at Work,’ by Carol Kinsey Goman, there are 7 steps in deception detection. 1) Beginning with a baseline – or observing body language, eye contact and blink rate. 2) Watching for Signs of Stress – a simple sign is too much eye contact, and pupil dilation. 3) Listening to what a person is telling you – choice of words often reveal more about a liar than they realize. 4) “Emotional Faking” – simulating facial expressions for assoicated feelings, or just noticing a certain expression for longer than 5-10 seconds. 5) Incongruence – when non-verbal behavior contradicts words. 6) Telltale Four – or a cluster of nonverbal cues that provide deception indications; face touching, leaning away, hand rubbing, or crossed arms. 7) Recognize that your ability to detect falsehoods can be messed with.
Are those professed human lie detectors truly able to spot a liar? Tricks for reading body language could be very useful for detecting small lies in every-day life. A hiring manager would benefit greatly if they acquired these liespotting skills to detect a potential, and trustworthy employee.
