While doing some research about micro-expressions and sexuality ( another fascinating subject/ basically Gay-dar ) I came across this article:
I used to watch 'Lie to Me.' and knew that it was based on real science, although it had a healthy dose of entertainment value. Let's face it, most people don't enjoy dry, purely scientific presentations. Speaking of "let's face it", let's look at "Lett's face" one more time!
What have scientists discovered about liars? Here is a list from the NatGeo article.
- People who touch their hand to their forehead and/or look down may be feeling shame or guilt, which can be signs of lying.
- Contrary to the widely held belief that people look away when lying, liars are actually more likely to look you dead in the eye when spinning their webs.
- Liars often use “distancing language,” or words that push an idea away. The example used on the show is when Bill Clinton said, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.” That woman. Another example is swapping first-person for third person.
- Liars will often shake their head no when they’re verbally saying yes, or vice-versa.
- Liars will sometimes lift one shoulder
Stephen Lett uses very distinct language and definitely makes direct eye-contact. As mentioned in the NatGeo article, Lett also shows signs of contempt in his facial features, while in my opinion, Richard Ashe shows signs of sadness and guilt.
Liars will also trip over their words as though they are struggling to speak. How often have we noticed the GB seemingly forcing sentences of "nu-light" from their stammering gobs? What about substituting first-person for third-person? The GB love to speak of "The Slave" and the "Governing Body" as if those entities are disctinct and have no real relationship to themselves!
I just thought that I would share this info. I know some of you love this type of thing. It's definitely more interesting that the meetings at the Kingdumb Hell.
