How to spot a liar | Pamela Meyer

On any given day we’re lied to from 10 to 200 times, and the clues to detect those lie can be subtle and counter-intuitive. Pamela Meyer, author of Liespotting, shows the manners and “hotspots” used by those trained to recognize deception — and she argues honesty is a value worth preserving.

  1. The grieving Mom was very sad. in fact, so sad, so implaccably tragic as to render anyone who had a heart anything but in the mood for laughter. Yet 30 secs or so later someone is laughing again. How to spot a psychopath.
    As for Diane, when yu see horror some people might escape or try to escape from it with humor. It s a form of denial. A way to escape from or cope with the horror and tragedy of THE TRUTH. Aka, reality.

  2. Categorizing all mannerisms like this is dangerous. Every person is different. My truth might exhibit itself differently from someone else. It's like saying every person reacts emotionally exactly the same in similar circumstances.
    If police detectives take all this as fact there will be tons of innocent people convicted of crimes they didn't commit.

  3. All I'm saying is that there are some things beyond the ken of mortal man that shouldn't be tampered with. We don't know everything. There's plenty goin' on right now in the Twilight Zone that we don't know anything about and I think we oughta stay clear.

  4. I think this con artist Pamela Meyer could learn a lot from this former FBI agent.

  5. Wow! This brilliant lady did a lot of research, FOR WHATEVER REASON, via a forum that is dedicated to the Distribution of knowledge. She is being pummeled, as predicted in her book (if you have the courage to read it or have read it you would know), for educating you about incredibly accurate facts, via your public posts, attacking her. I guess she failed with a great many people, but mostly those to whom the crutch of lying bridges the gap for them. By that I mean, if you can’t produce an idea, product, or service that is actually useful, productive, or (as is the rare case) invaluable, then you will probably need to lie to make a living. Most of the posts I’ve read here are in that category, but bravo to those few who actually listened!

  6. Henry Oberlander. the man who nearly brought down The Western World in the 1930s…he was born in 1928! Dis she just lie already or is her research just flawed. Regardless, an author of like her should have done better. Sad.

  7. Pathological liars lie so much that they actually start believing the lies themselves. The people that expose their deceit by these facial "tells" (eye direction, duping delight, expression of contempt, etc..), probably aren't frequent liars. IMO, It's the everyday, every-conversation liars that are hardest to detect. As I've grown older and wiser, and as my Faith in The Lord Jesus Christ has increased, I've developed a rather large contempt for dishonesty. The devil is the father of ALL lies.

  8. she uses only material from lie to me, even the pictures, she´s nothing but a liar. she lies about, that this is her own material. and so on.
