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.
There are times you’ll need to take control of a conversation. It may be that you have a short amount of time to get your point across without being rude.
Or maybe you’re an attorney and your closing statement is gonna run a bit long. There are also times you need to be the one talking while at the same time giving your listener the impression you are the one listening. (I’ll show you how to do that in this 1 minute video.)
Hand gestures are the key. In this video I’ll teach you a couple of “regulators” that will help you in those situations as well as some others.
Most people begin paying attention to body language cues when there is an “event”. For example, when someone answers a question that seems deceptive, the person asking begins to look for “deception cues” they’ve heard about on TV or read about in an article somewhere. Too late.
Watch these 2 60 second videos. Because you’ve got to pay attention to what’s going on with the person before you ask the question. Are the illustrators they’re using really big? Or are they small to almost non existent? What about the adapters they use? Did they use any at all before you asked the question? Did they start using them after you asked the question? These are things you need to know before you begin decoding body language…
