This Funzing Experience:
How to be a lie detector: Reading the cues to deception in body language and speech patterns.

In 1938, Hitler met Neville Chamberlain, who came away believing that “here was a man who could be relied upon when he had given his word”. This was a failure to recognise deception that had dire consequences for the world. Could we do better today?

Modern research into body language, physiological responses and speech pattern analysis puts us in a much better position to spot lies. At the same time, it equips us better to deceive others, if that is our intent. Some personality types lie more comfortably than others but deception is a skill that can be learned to some extent. It has much in common with acting.

Reading the cues of lying is important in many contexts, like dating, business negotiations, politics, police interrogations and the courtroom, as well as our everyday dealings with those around us. This talk brings us up to date with what science tells us about how to spot attempts at deception.

Dr Glenn Wilson is one of Britain's best-known psychologists, specialising in personality, sexual behaviour, body language and psychology applied to performing arts. He has been Visiting Professor at Gresham College London, as well as several American institutions, including Stanford University, University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Nevada, Reno.

He is author and co-author of some 33 books, including Love and Instinct, Psychology for Performing Artists, Born Gay: The Psychobiology of Sex Orientation and Winning with Body Language and has published around 130 articles in scientific journals. He is a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and makes frequent TV appearances in news and documentary programmes.
