Confidence and anxiety can greatly change all of these mannerisms. A confident person could be holding still and firm and they could be lying about everything they say. Someone with anxiety could be squirming and look guilty but they’re being honest.

An important caveat is that when interviewing anyone, you need to establish a “baseline” for their individual body language. Maybe they are naturally more nervous or nervous because of the situation. So you first ask questions you already know answers to to see how they react. Watch how they move when they tell the truth. Figure out their “normal”. Then, you can ask calculated questions and see if there is deviation. You are looking for

I'd love to see how they view the body language of people with ADHD. Can they tell if they have it, or do they assume they're hyperactive or moving so much because they're lying or nervous? Just an interesting thought that I'd like to see explored!

Wouldn't anyone be stressed and uncomfortable if they are talking with an FBI agent even if you have done nothing wrong?

A lot of people calling BS on this don't understand how much knowledge and experience you have to have in order to truly tell this stuff. Yes people can be nervous when being questioned and being interrogated but when you get asked a question that you really don't want anyone to know the answer to. You'll react in ways that even people who know you know that you don't do that. This type of study has to take every single detail into consideration. It's an art that takes years of experience to get right and when you get it right you'll know.

I'm glad that those "signs" he laid out at the beginning were myths. I've put so much effort over the years into avoiding showing these signs by accident so I don't come across as untrustworthy, and when I do them by accident I always felt like I'm somehow maliciously deceiving people or myself without knowing about it. This puts my mind at ease - self-soothing, if you will

Love that he first mentioned crossing arms and looking away. I cross my arms often to relieve anxiety and I usually tend to look away when being explained something because I'm visually processing information they tell me.

I remember I was in an argument with a friend if mine and I crossed my arms. She instantly called me out on it and said if I'm being open and honest then why did I cross my arms. Thats a defensive stance. Later I found out that this was meant and a self sooth which I find more realistic. That situation was stressful for me so crossing my arms made sense I do that when I'm anxious or upset

I read his book about body language when I started learning about the other way to express yourself ( not just speech) It's amazing that what you say can not tell your true emotion but body language does

He's so on point. Notice how he pauses before saying certain words even though he knows what to say? That's a tactic of the listening speaker. And comes off non-threatening. Master class in prying here.

I mistakenly grew up thinking you were innocent until proven guilty. I dont know when that changed but found out that law enforcement in the US, believe you are guilty and must prove your innocence. That's why you need a lawyer even if you didn't commit any crime. So just knowing that they think I'm already a suspect would make me nervous and give off guilty vibes.

The guy is giving a simplified summary for total beginners and people think it is an exact account if the methods they use. Agents have spoken with innocent and guilty people, their knew how to account for simple nerves and a guilty person. They know how to establish a baseline to account for individual traits. And most importantly, none of this can be used too convict you. They can't just say "yep he's the murderer, he is lying" and throw you in prison. It is just a tool to help then when interrogating so they can have an idea if when they are being lied too, or who they should focus on. They still need to investigate and find actual PROOFV to convict you. If you didn't do it, they can't convict you just because you seemed like you were lying.

This is the most interesting thing I've seen in a long time. I can feel this guy's passion and attention to detail. The way he described seeing pertinent nonverbals jumping out at you as if a caricature when played at double speed was INCREDIBLY perceptive. I'm so intensely interested in this individual and his affinity to human behavior.

I wonder how/ if he modifies his judgements when dealing with neurodiverse people? I'm always worried that, as an autistic, I'll accidentally give off the 'wrong' message via body language and get into trouble because of it. I already get followed by security guards quite enough for appearing 'shifty', and I've witnessed the Police judging the bodylange of autistic people according to neurotypical standards and finding them apparently 'lacking' in honesty, or whatever they're apparently seeking. It happens ALL the time on tv and film too, and is pretty scary, tbh.
