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.
