The Difference In Lying And Deception

One of the questions I get most often is “What’s the difference in lying and deception?”  That’s a great question because the difference is a bit unclear due to the way people use the word deception these days.

Tell Me What You Want To Know About Body Language

I’m gonna break it down so it’s very easy to understand and way too simple to forget what to do with your eyes at your next business meeting…

What’s The Holy Grail of Body Language? (It’s not spotting a lie)

About 90% of the time, the first question I’m asked after I’ve given a talk on body language or deception detection, is “How can you tell when someone is lying?”.  That seems to be the Holy Grail of body language.  However, no one has ever asked me the most powerful question they should want the answer to if they think someone may be lying. Scott-Rouse-Holy-Grail-Of-Lies

This question has the answer that could tell you so much more about the person, what’s really going on, and what’s gonna happen next.  What’s the question?  Here it is:
