Body Language of a Con. Dr. Milton Erickson was the first to really lean into the study of human behavior as it relates to the interactions that create what he coined “Matching and Mirroring”. If you’ll observe best friends, family members, and even people who really admire each other but are just meeting for the first time, you’ll notice they will match and mirror each other.
A Potent Technique
This is a technique you can use not only when looking for the body language of a con and in meetings you can use it at home as well. The con man, grifter, confidence man, confidence woman use this technique from the moment you get near them. It makes you feel more relaxed and less wary around them. Especially when your money, property, or deal is involved.
Learn about matching and mirroring and keep an eye out for someone using to soon when talking to you. Especially someone you don’t know.

Here are 5 things body language says about you. Out of my list these are the top 5. In fact it’s thehub I guess you’d say of what happens when someone’s body language tries to let you know what they’re really thinking.
These 5 focus mainly on the face, mouth and eyes, but will get to other parts of the body in other videos. But for now, try to use what you learn from this video this week at work, school, at home or in a social situation. You’ll see all of these most likely.
Most people are under the impression an investor’s facial expression can tell them everything they need to know about what the investor is thinking.
The correct information on that is especially crucial during the Investor Pitch. However, 95% of the entrepreneurs who pitch their idea, business, or product get it wrong. EVERY TIME. Here’s what you really need to know.
One of the questions I’m asked most often after speaking to a group of business people is “What are the early warning signs of deception?”
There’s nothing I look for right out of the gate. At first, I’m just watching. My brain is in nuetral, my eyes are absorbing information, and my ears are just listening for glitches.
A glitch is usually the first thing to pop up and get my attention. By “glitch” I mean something someone does or says that is out of the ordinary for most people. For example, if I’m at a function, party, or family get together, and I ask someone a question and they answer with something like “No, I have not” or “No, I did not” you can almost hear every deception detection tool in my head clicking on…
