      As a Counter Intelligence Special Agent I’ve got a good amount of expertise in the matter. For one before looking for any of these indicators you need to establish a baseline for their behaviors when at rest. So while someone with ADHD may be more fidgety, or hyperactive normally, while lying they may actually be calmer. People with ADHD tend to hyper focus on certain things. So when lying people need to think harder. It’s harder to keep a story straight when lying than to recall true memories. There’s a lot more to it than that but that’s a basic overview.

    • Andrew Rivett

      @Big Bird When you suspect that you're being judged for your behavior and it is more than a cursory thing such as being pulled over by the cops for speeding, I think that it serves one well to show a tic or affective disorder up front. This makes it difficult for the person who is looking to accurately size you up. How many people know how to evaluate somebody with a pre-existing neurological disorder? Even if they suspect that you are just messing with them, it will still throw them off. For the most part they will make up their minds according to their experience. Be outside of that box and you won't be easily read.

    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 *clusters* of indicators - not isolated indicators.

    Key takeaway: Every body language is transmitting some sort of information. Just try to assess but do not over-judge, especially if someone cross their arms or roll their eyes in different direction. It may not mean anything. Also, you can move around to identify the most comfortable space with others

    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

      That analysis would be interesting, although I would think the differences may be due more to the fact that your interaction with the environment uses different senses and therefore may have different responses. It seems the self soothing type movements would be the same for all of us, not due to our observing them in others. I may be completely wrong.

    This is especially interesting to me as an autistic person with CPTSD. I had to research neurotypical body language for years in order to mask effectively, because when I'm unmasked, most people interpret my body language as indicative of my behavior being avoidant, uninterested, or dishonest, and as a result I've noticed that usually people treat me better when I am actively masking. It takes so much energy on a day to day basis just to keep up this behavior, and I've become very introverted because of it. Solitude is a relief. I love how Mr. Navarro breaks down behaviors as self-soothing, not necessarily a tell of dishonesty. I wonder how other neurodivergent people feel about this.

    • Infisphere
      Infisphere 9 місяців тому +14

      I was just about to comment something similar… you said it so beautifully. I am in agreement! I prefer only unmasking around my close circle who knows my sincerity despite my contradictory facial expressions/body language. I’ve tried otherwise and have just continually confused people. Given how fleeting most interactions are on a day to day I find it best to utilize a bridging, which is to say, to speak “their language” and mask. I do try to find a balance, where I’m not forcing joy when not feeling it, but I am for instance, more subtly expressing my eyes and lips and tone, so it’s clear enough what I’m intending. 🤍 I hear you, it takes a lot of energy. I have to be sure to make a lot of space to myself to recharge

That's a whole 'nother level of discipline and body language reading right there! And a good question to ask yourself: How does a reader of body language choose to sit? There's nothing casual, accidental or subconscious about it. They must be so aware of there own mannerisms at all times.

      i mean, i don’t think he’d need to consciously do too much. as long as his body language isn’t giving away any unwanted information, there’s no issue with it. he’s making open hand gestures, speaking calmly, and not slouching or showing any other specific emotion. pretty much the same thing as any businessman.

    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.

    Growing up in certain environments I can say that I do almost none of these. It’s crazy how much childhood experience can completely change everything about someone. My father is the passive aggressive type, who often guilt trips and then tries to brush it off and then tries to put something on you then brush it off and we’re always being sarcastic. theres mistrust in the relationship, constant lies and a rocky marriage. Picking up on his intentions and what he tries to do to me when he speaks. He uses vague language so I can never really hold something against him without sounding accusatory and angered. I haven’t figured out why, but I end up avoiding communication in every way. Im self aware of everything I say and do. This sounds like an edgy attention grabbing comment but it’s the truth. I don’t react when I find something to be repulsive, painful, hilarious, impressive, scary, or breathtaking. Its like my body is still, and I have to manually forge a reaction that fits what my thoughts were when I saw it so that people don’t think i’m ignoring them or that i’m just a rude person. The only behavior I notice myself doing is wiping sweats palms on my pants. This is all I have to say.

    Can he talk with a random person he meets on street without subconsciously reading his behavior?

    I’ve always been interested in the study of body langue. In middle school it was really easy to read someone’s mood. For example, I would always know who liked who just because if their body language towards that person etc. Right now I’m in high school and it’s easy to read someone’s body language.

    As he talks about body language you can see he is trying to maintain his own body language at the same time. For example, when he talks about the movement of feet he is suddenly able to keep his feet still because he is consciously aware that his feet will be being judged at the same time. He is sitting on a chair in the middle of an open room. You can see he isn’t completely comfortable with it. He’s okay about it but you can tell he’d rather have something in front of him like a table so his whole body wouldn’t be fully exposed. Look at the way he sits with his legs, one back under the chair and one situated in front. This is him trying to maintain control over his own body language in front of the camera. He’s trying to look unbothered. To some extent he’s definitely very comfortable with himself. In fact I’d say in general life situations he’s very comfortable with himself and has confidence but in this situation he’s not as comfortable as he usually would be. He feels slightly exposed to the world due to the nature of the conversation and knowing his own body language will be judged as he talks about other peoples body language an his expertise of being able to read it.

    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.

    • IC XC NIKA
      IC XC NIKA Рік тому +8

      You are confused. That has nothing to do with whether law enforcement will suspect you or investigate you, that solely has to do with the standards they need to use to convict you. Cops can proceed with an investigation on relatively minor suspicions, they don't need to know you are guilty. What would be the point of investigating if they already KNEW you were guilty? The entire point is to discover if there is any proof if your guilt. Then the standards for arresting you are also much lower than for convicting you, although they offer to make sure they can't get a conviction before they arrest, unless it is an emergency. But they cannot convict you of a crime just because it seems pretty likely that you are guilty, they need to prove beyond reasonable doubt that you are guilty. In places like the UK, they can't arrest you on suspicion, and if you can't prove that you are innocent, you will be convicted. In the US they need to prove that you are guilty, it you must be acquitted. That is what it means. So you are apparently mistaken.

    The "looking up when you're thinking" is a tricky one. I know I do that because I'm making sure I'm definitely not forgetting details because I DON'T want to mislead someone. However, I went to school with a girl who proved time and time again that she was essentially a pathological liar and what ALWAYS gave it away was her doing this. Because of her, I really notice when people do that and in my experience have come to find that most of the time it's due to the latter 🤷🏻‍♀️

      I read in a Subliminal psychology book that the directions your eyes point towards can mean different things. When your eyes point up and right it could mean you're trying to access a visual memory. When they point up and left it means you could be coming up with a lie or planning deceit.
      Downwards and left means you are hurt and downwards and right means you could be brooding over something or lost in thought.

    I worked for TSA and I looked at Non-verbals all the time. I worked at this small airport and this guy came through the checkpoint and was acting really erratic. A coworker came to me and asked how do you feel about this guy? I finally realized he had autism. I was able to explain to my coworker how he was sitting (like a child) as a grown man with his mother. I had an advantage because of my experience. You just have to look for the baseline of people and if they act outside that box then you have a better chance of figuring it out.

It is a show for entertainment after all but I believe there are at least a few things that are true in there. Anyway, I loved the series. Was really interesting and entertaining. Didn't like the ending though...
      Short summary: It's basically about a "private investigator" of sorts, who specialized in reading "micro expressions" and body language and detects lies, deception and all sorts of emotions with his techniques. May be something for you! :)

    As a non-spy and non-European, I have carried flowers that way. If you go walking along holding the flowers upright, the weight of the flower blossoms is bouncing on the stems and it only takes a little damage to the stems before the flowers wilt. However if you carry them upside down there is far less weight on the stems and so your less likely to do damage to them. Its really kind of obvious. While I can see why he thought it means the person was European, it might just has well have meant he was smart.

If you are transporting flowers and you want to protect its looks in shape then it’s better to carry them this way…

      Just like how he approached those two having a conversation and started talking about space, they started overthinking about it.

    Understanding nonverbal communication is how my ancestors survived! I've had to use my psychic ability as well as the gift to be able to be beautiful and almost 50 and flawless. Being able to analyze yourself and everyone around you is truly important it is the best college education especially in the that you can have! 🥰

    There's a way to escape people reading you through body language: thinking with this line of thought when about to do anything: "What a drag..."
    Try to implement it in everything but still doing everything not because you must, but because you need to, and your body will automatically be relaxed by itself, while your way of talking will be fluid. And your face would almost be expressionless.

    The first half got me hooked. Because I always cross my arms, and touch my face. But I'm always ready to open those arms and give a hug to when my friends approach me. I always thought it was odd when they said it means you're being stand offish if you if you cross your arms. I thought, no it isn't. Thank you.

    As an autistic person (with ADHD as well), I wonder what would happen if he tried interpreting my movements because I do a lot of random nonverbal movements and don't do a lot of "those nonverbals that neurotypical people just do instinctively when talking to someone." whereas I don't even know they exist.

      @Mamoru no offense but the first thing that tells me your not in the CIA is you saying you are in fact in the CIA, that's usually something people keep confidential when working in an intelligence agency

    you’d think an FBI agent should be smart enough to know that trying to read body language is about as helpful in determining guilt as spinning the bottle on suspects

    All this is true UNLESS the person is faking it, EVEN if they are left alone in a room. Military training taught me a lot about deception and lying.

    One time my narcissistic dad got mad at me because my arms were in the “self-soothing” position because he misunderstood what it meant. Which now speaks volumes to how uncomfortable I was around him.
