O.K. last post before I'm off the grid sailing in the Bahama's... (yea, I know life really sucks right now...)
This comes from the Tips, Tricks & Tactics section of my PeaceWalker Program. It's called the Lie Detector. It was inspired by my Mom. She was the master of this... I think pretty much all Moms are. So if you don't have access to a polygraph machine or Wonder Woman's lasso of truth, this is the next best thing. It is very useful when dealing with people. It goes like this:
If you feel you are being lied to and you want a better chance of extracting the truth from someone, use this tactic. It’s the same one that your mom used on you when you were a kid. Give them “the look.”
Here’s how you can do this simple yet effective technique:
- Ask them your question.
- Shut up and listen.
- Give them “The Look” - Stare at them for 3 or 4 seconds without saying a word, nodding, using any facial expression, or blinking.
- Let the truth spill forth!
I know what your thinking... The answer is...
"No, it doesn't work ALL of the time with EVERYONE. However, it works a LOT of the time with MOST PEOPLE."
Why does it work so well? Probably because we were conditioned by our mothers to tell the truth of course.
I'm not a mind reader, but I know what you're thinking now.
"So, Craig, how am I able to tell when they ARE lying to me?"
GREAT question! That sounds like a great blog AFTER I get back from sailing the Bahamas! I'll post that next month w/some cool pics of manning the sails, swimming with the sharks and napping in a hammock on a deserted beach!
< Insert me here! =)
See you when I get back!
