Readers frequently say that they love short tests or quizzes especially those which require a single answer: truth or deception.
Did this happen as reported?
Pronouns are not subjective. They are intuitive, and as English speaking people, we use pronouns millions of times giving them 100% accuracy, with 100% being "complete" for analysis. There is no "101%" in analysis. Those who use figures of speech greater than 100% will reveal their own subjective understanding of "100%" such as OJ Simpson and Joey Buttafuoco.
Question for analysis:
Did this happen?
Specifically: Was the subject (writer) truthful about the gun?
"...well it was like this. We went to his parents' house for dinner and he had a six pack by himself so I drove instead. While we were on our way to the mall, he told me to stop at the Bloom to buy more beer but I told him no he had enough but this only got him angry more. He punched me on the side of my head. I tried to steer the car but I almost lost control. I told him that he was mental and unless he gets help I was done. He put his gun to my head and told me if I did not stop talking he would shoot me. I said we are driving so you die too. He said try me and he didn't care. I said we could talk it through and he told me he hated me and that he wasn't fooling around and to shut up..."
For formal training, please go to HYATT ANALYSIS
For your business or civil investigation, we tailor training on how to do a legally sound non intrusive interview to weed out those who will bring trouble to your company.
For Law Enforcement, we have Police Seminars, individual training, as well as specific training for Sexual Abuse cases, as the language of sexual abuse victims can be not only complex, but may be seen as deceptive when, in fact, it is truthful. There is no substitute for formal training, and professionals who have had "101" or introductory training, must have in depth, challenging training.
Lie Detection is hard work. If it was easy, we'd see the results, instead of the epidemic of successful deception today.
Detectives, patrol officers with hope of advancement, attorneys with litigation responsibilities, Human Resources, medical professionals, therapists, counselors, and others have had successful training as well as 12 months of ongoing support as they move towards excellence. Those who complete our two year program are not only proficient in Statement Analysis, but apt to teach and lead others.
