Body Language Analysis: The Eyes

Long term readers know that I both use body langue analysis and am highly critical of it.  It is fascinating and if a baseline is established, it can be a useful, howbeit, minor tool.  

It is not something that communicates well in teaching and success rates often mimic guess work.  Those who are overly confident in it often fail, and as I say to professionals:

your first error may be your last.  80% isn't good enough.  

If you declare an innocent person to be deceptive conclusively, you may lose the respect of your peers and damage the science we work hard at studying and employing.  This is why students enrolled always have the support they need before submitting analysis in their work place.  

Yet, I have covered some fascinating examples of it.  Recall the video of Phoebe DiPietro who closed her eyes before each lie.  

Here is another view of the eyes being closed and the samples are enough to establish a pattern which America will be watching.

I listened to her for 1 minute and 35 seconds. It's all I could take. (She's going to be the next President of the United States, thanks very much Trump supporters.)
Why, WHY can we not find & elect decent people in government!!
If this is the best that America has to offer, we should be ashamed.

Hi

i read that analysis. They are basing their conclusion on one answer.

Reporter :

"It's not safe"

Answer:

"It's not safe at all"

first note: She feeds him the answer.
Second: It is reflective language.
Third: He qualifies his answer with "at all" thus weakening it.

How they can base their conclusions (although qualified with "likely") on this one Q ans A, is, i believe, ridiculous.

Why is he in prison? Hundreds of felons are being released from US prison for undermining society. Nin violent drug crimes. Why is he in prison? The Alabama high school teacher was in prison under one year on Fed firearms charges. He served his time on a personal leave of absence from teaching job. Returned to job and started soliciting sex from students. Kept in classroom & female student forced to remain in his class. The criminals walk free. Get out of jail free cards.

Maybe that would make a good slogan for campaigning US Democrats: THE CRIMINALS WALK FREE & GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARDS FOR EVERYONE.

Former FBI/Cyber Crime Expert Chris Tarbell....cautions that hackers like Guccifer are notions liars; but still, he says, he takes these allegations seriously.

[...]


Reporter: "And if he's lying?

Tarbell: "That seems silly to me. To go on television and admit to a felony you didn't commit, seems a little silly".

[...]

Voice Over: ...the FBI review of the Clinton's server logs did in fact show no evidence of hacking. But Tarbell says, server logs are not necessary comprehensive.

Reporter: So, it may be that there's no breach that was recorded. That doesn't mean there was no breach.

Tarbell: Correct.

My favourite Clinton lie regarding the email was when she said that there was nothing stamped "classified" in the email.

1) Technically, documentation is not stamped classified. Documents are classified "secret" or "top secret", etc.

2) She had minions cut and paste information to exclude the headers/where the classification would have been noted. So technically, once the document had been 'snipped' for content, it didn't 'appear' classified to the naked eye.

I would take being fired instead of following career limiting direction like that. I wouldn't fall on that sword for her.

I agree, it is shameful to have these two candidates.
I think it confirms that certain types are drawn to politics; I hope they don't represent the American people as a whole. /shudder/

The bipartisan system is failing us, though I'm not sure what the solution would be.
I will not be voting.

Why does anyone assume Clinton can win?? What is that based on? ALL the criminal activity she's partaken in? The worst secretary we've ever had. Funneling millions into her Clinton foundation? The fact that's she's lost the majority of the primaries to a big joke of a candidate but only winning because of a truly corrupt "super delegate" system. Her besties/terrorists Huma Abedin & Saul Alinsky?
She's not just a terrible candidate she's a moral-less person with an agenda to destroy our country.
She can't even beat Bernie Sanders why can't a republican beat her?

I'm looking for someone to support for president. Any ideas?

Maybe it is all corrupt. Check Michigan news report. Flint city administrator paid $140,000 salary. Isn't that city bankrupt?

I'd rather vote for the clerk at my local gas station. Why not? He's about as qualified as Trump and I'd bet more honest than Clinton. Hell, we'd have a better chance of picking some random person's name out of a hat than choosing any of the whacked candidates at this point.

From all the polls I've seen, it doesn't look like Bernie has the numbers to win, and she has more experience than Trump which will be painfully obvious once the two go neck to neck in a debate. Like it or not, Clinton has the numbers and experience on her side.
Rubio could have beaten her but, thanks to the Trump farce, he's gone.
In the end, we'll get the president we deserve. Well done, America. Smh.
