Calibration, Sensory Acuity and Lie Detection

It’s really hard to tell whether someone is lying to you.

You might know someone that has a characteristic ‘tell’ – a mannerism that lets you know that they are lying. Or you’ve heard about changes in the amount of eye contact that people make when they lie. Or you’ve been really studying hard to pick the different emotions through microexpressions (a la Lie to Me/ Paul Ekman). Or you’ve learned about how the direction someone looks can indicate how someone is thinking as Bandler and Grinder noticed back in the 1970s. Or you figure, “just give them a polygraph” (which is better than most people but still far from perfect). Maybe you’ve tried Liespotting or learning about What Every BODY is Saying, but let’s face it: in real time, it’s still really really hard!

One question that seemed to be taken for granted: Do people actually move differently when they lie?

Our friends at Cambridge were wondering the same thing. And so they figured they would test it out. Using full body motion capture suits!

Researchers used those fancy (and expensive) suits – like they use in the movies for special effects – to take away codifying inherently subjective interpretations from human observers (upon which other methods rely) and trade it in for objective, conclusive evidence of how people behave when lying. The findings were pretty clear: The sum of joint displacements indicates lying 75% of the time. Better still, this related to guilt and was independent of anxiety, cognitive load or cultural background, so the researchers guess they can get it up to 82% with some extra refinements.

It’s great to have this validate the calibration drills and exercises in our NLP Practitioner training!

We all have challenges.
We all have obstacles to overcome.
We all have things that have held us back.
But what if there was a way to make things better?
But what if there was a direct way for you to increase your emotional intelligence?
But what if there was an easy and affordable way to free yourself from your past habits and limitations, and get the life you want?



Our NLP units are an accessible way for you to discover how to use and practise Neuro-Linguistic Programming to date. In these five sessions you will be introduced to specific techniques, strategies and ideas that you will be able to test and apply immediately. Here are some of the topics you might expect:

Paul W James目标确定法 Well-Formed Outcomes

眼睛解读线索 Eye accessing cues

“眼睛是灵魂的窗户” – 眼睛影响我们的思维方式,向他人展示出我们如何思考。

“The eyes are the window to your soul” – and they both affect how you think and show how you think to others. What if you could know how someone else is thinking just by watching them? What if you could think more clearly just by looking in the right direction? What if you could help someone let go of past trauma simply by moving their eyes in the specific way you can learn as we explore eye accessing cues?

Aaron Wallace在潜移默化中卓越 Stalking to Excellence


Have you ever got stuck in a bad state?Like one that just “crept up on you”? Maybe it’s a feeling of anxiety. Or fear. Or guilt. And what if you could learn a way to get yourself out of that before it even began. It would be like you could see that person who used to make you feel bad and just feel fine and continue to perform as if they don’t bother you anymore.

换框法 Reframing


“Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
What happens to us can make change how we feel. But not nearly as much as the way we interpret what happens to us! Have we lost our job? Broken up from a relationship or dodged a bullet? Had a friend betray us or had someone reveal themselves? Reframing allows us to take charge of how we think about what happens so we can get on with enjoying the life we want and see the world as it really is.
