Lie to Me
But really when you think of it, the "techniques" revealed in that show are probably fake. I mean how would you know that, that is exactly how a person reacts when he's telling a lie or something like that. The show is made for entertainment purposes, although spotting lies and "tells" isn't tough. There's a concept named "Neuro Linguistic Programming" which is used to spot lies, it uses the simple principle that a person looks in a certain direction while thinking of something.
It's common knowledge that a man looks you in the eye when he tells the truth. But think of this, ask him a series of questions and he looks in a certain direction to think of the answer before answering, but one time he'll look you right in the eye and say something. Because that's a lie! He answered without thinking, he knew he was going to say that all along.
That's a whole lot of lying right there...there are loads of other principles which for obvious reason I won't reveal for fear of being out of business. So I end this post with an excessively self content smile on my face and saying.. "Don't Lie to Me" ;)
