Deception Detection training is not only for law enforcement, intelligence, or the military. The uses are helpful in many other fields, especially where communication is critical, including social services, human resources and others.
But what of non-professional use?
Statement Analysis' formal training is useful for those who may not ever use it professionally.
Here are just a few examples:
The level of trust of main stream media is low. Narrative driven, the use of deception is now common.
It is common now to hear political debate in almost every programming, including sports. Listening to arguments through your training will give you an edge.
The level of deception is higher, perhaps, than we've seen in 150 years. At times it appears comic book like, yet regardless of what you think, millions of Americans are being deceived.
These are "soft targets" for politicians who manipulate them into not only thinking they are morally superior to others, but cause divisions not seen since the War Between the States.
2. Consumerism: This includes learning to spot shill reviews at Amazon, which are now regularly employed by sellers.
The ability to discern not only deception from truth, but strength from weakness is invaluable. Culturally, as deceptive practices become more acceptable, our need for discernment rises.
Buying a car? Learn to listen to the sales person. Expect the "25% language" factor, up and down.
Negotiating a home purchase?
Want to ask questions about the neighborhood, crime and schools first?
Enrolling your child in sports or a camp?
The list is immense and the need for discernment tangible.
Regarding children, your little ones will, no matter what you think, become teens. When they do...
3. Heath Discernment of medical and veterinary practice. I have found veterinary practice to be one of the most deceptive of professions; particularly in nutrition and medicine. "Studies have shown..." are the opening statements for sales techniques used by vets who are underwritten by large dog food companies. You look at your dog's teeth and wonder how "corn" and "chicken meal by-products" can possibly be good for him. Being able to discern strength and weakness (and follow funding) is useful for your health (yes, read through the lens of analysis the pharmaceutical warnings and studies) and the health of your pets.
I like reading studies for myself, using analysis, and am always gratified to learn, "This one doesn't get away with it..." when deception is employed.
To be able to read an annual report, through the lens of Statement Analysis, can help you make investment decisions.
Last year I read of a CEO who made a large purchase of her company's stock; often a useful indicator in how the leadership thinks their company will do. In her letter to investors, the "need to persuade" and analytical weakness suggested to the contrary. A month later, the company announced that it did not get the satellite contract it sought.
Companies communicate to use with words.
We no longer live in a world where "authority" equates trust.
5. Private Life
To know when one believes one's own words, while communicating, is a reassurance. To not be taken is also a comfort.
