Hey guys, my name is Spencer Coffman, thank you for watching the Deception Tips videos. They’re all about teaching you how to read people and detect deception so that you will be able to tell if someone is lying to you.
Today, we are on our final deception tip, this is a great tip, it’s something that we’ve talked about many times throughout all of these episodes.
I’ve mentioned it over and over again but this one, we’re dedicating a tip to it because it is very, very important. So, here it is, this is Deception Tip number 101. Learn to recognize the signs of deception and remember to watch for clusters of behavior. Liars always display more than one sign. This is very, very important. As you’re going through, you’re reading people, you’re detecting deception, there is a huge battle in the conscious and unconscious of anyone who is lying, remember that.
Their conscious is self-serving, it wants to get away with things, it wants the easy way out, it wants to escape. Their unconscious is truthful, it does the right thing and so they’re battling head-to-head. What happens is the conscious can consciously put on a mask or fake things and just let it go. The unconscious can’t, it’s behind, it’s behind the scenes, so what can it do?
The only thing it can do is try to sneak things out between the conscious and it leaks these signs of deception all over the place. We’ve talked about them, they’re on the head and the neck, the arms, the legs, the fingers, in speech, on the face, everywhere. It may be with the fingertips, touching the eyes, feet, legs, all over, we’ve talked about several of them.
You can use any of the tactics to try to get them a little bit more frustrated, but the main thing is to remember that the unconscious is exactly that, it’s unconscious. Therefore, it’s behind the scenes, it’s working to push the truth out through the cracks and that’s what you’re looking for. You’re looking for these signs of deception, these patterns of behavior, these clusters of behavior that fit together.
