    People - friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople - lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day. Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines - facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field - into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception....

    Research augments ability


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This work is a fine overview of current deception detection theory. If applied carefully it can provide a basis for increasing your own natural deception spotting. While no technique is one hundred percent foolproof, if you already have some natural ability this can take you to the next level. That said, nothing new is presented here per se, it's simply the collected theory of many years of research presented more or less in one place.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Liespotting?

    Where the author's style comes through is in the notion that lie spotting is not best used when attempting to 'catch someone red handed' and show them up. Rather, it is intended to promote the realization that lying happens all the time. It's part of the fabric of our society. Rather than focusing on rooting out individual incidents, it's more productive to use it to promote a truthful atmosphere in all of your associations, and yourself and with it you can choose to surround yourself with people of integrity and honesty. That doesn't mean you'll never be lied to again, or even that there aren't good reasons for lying, but at least, you can be on your guard... and you can choose how to respond to deceptive situations.
