Navy Seal Highlights Method and Principle of Deception
The disruption of experiential memory is a source of stress. This includes sociopaths and debunks myths that "Hannabal Lector" can pass a polygraph because he feels no human empathy or remorse.
It also highlights why a deceptive person will often needlessly emphasize an irrelevant point.
"I did actually see a man outside the building."
That this may have nothing to do with the event the subject adds it, with emphasis (dependent word "actually") because as the subject considers the deception overall he is relieved to make a truthful statement. It reduces internal stress and is very important to the subject because it is true.
The man outside was a UPS delivery worker, and had nothing to do with the theft.
But it was a relief from the internal stress by the subject who embraced the diversion.
This video highlights the method of deception used: using technical truth to accomplish overall deception.
