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 going to talk about a great tip that is something that you need to keep in mind and be aware of when you’re reading people and detecting deception.
It’s something that we may have talked about before, we’ve talked about it in a few other tips and we’ll recap on them. So, here it is, this is Deception Tip number 99. It can be helpful to agree with liars on little things. If they think they fooled you, they may let their guard down. We’ve talked about this before in getting some facts wrong or Wrong Facts and you can see that in the card above.
It’s important sometimes to agree with liars and allow them to think that they may have fooled you. If they think they fooled you, they may let their guard down like oh man, I’m getting away with this, this is way easier than I thought, this is going to be a piece of cake, let me just keep going. All of a sudden, they may just start spilling the truth like crazy.
One important thing is to not let yourself get overconfident and we’ve talked about that before, you’ll see another card come up, don’t get overconfident in this ability. If you start to agree with the liar on certain points and they are like oh yeah, I’ve got this. They start to let their guard down and you notice that and you’re like yes, I’ve got them right where I want them, they let their guard down, I’m going to walk all over them.
Don’t get overconfident because as soon as you think you have it in the bag, you’re going to lose it, you’re going to mess it up and you’ll fail. So, remain calm, remain humble, stay there, do not become overconfident. One thing to look for though is when you start to get some facts that are wrong, we talked about it, like with their name and it frustrates them.
Maybe you start to agree with them on certain points that you know are false to let them continue with their lie…
