How To Become A Human Lie Detector



How To Become A Human Lie Detector

What if you could read a person’s face almost instantly with only a few minutes of training? What if you could sense a lie or the truth, get a distinct feeling about an individual’s honesty in general through a simple technique?


It’s not only possible, but it’s also quite likely when your learn the technique I’m about to show you.


How To Become A Human Lie Detector


There is an abundance of science covering facial expressions. Experts can now slow down video of a person’s face during interrogations to more accurately tell if they are truthful through their smallest facial expressions.


Science and simple


Dr. Paul Ekman discovered what he termed, “micro-expressions.” Minute facial expressions, almost invisible to the naked eye. Ekman says he teaches others how to read them. His work became primarily known through the FOX TV program,”Lie to Me”, based on his deep scientific research.


That’s the science. But the age-old method may be more preferable. It’s certainly simpler.


Your subconscious mind is an endless recorder of all of your observations and experiences in life. For example, every lie that’s ever been told to you, face to face, was subconsciously recorded by your mind. Those lies you later discovered were then unconsciously paired with your built-in facial reading program.


Whenever we are lied to, there are various, yet subtle facial expressions frequently associated with deception. Even blind people who’ve never seen a face, display an array of the same telling expressions during stress, joy, and lies.


These micro tics are all but invisible in real time, but our minds eye can capture them. Whenever someone displays those same expressions, you may likely get a feeling or “hunch” that something is “not right” about this person. It might make little sense, especially when they seem otherwise honest and upright.


Your inner-wizard


I call this, “Your Inner Wizard.” This kind of recognition is both science and a form of intuition and is either a simple hunch (an intuitive tickle) or a three-alarm alert (an intuitive click) that can be very confusing if you don’t know how to read your intuitive senses.


It’s possible to learn how to read faces through one of Dr. Ekman’s courses for $300 or more. However, you’re already reading these expressions and all forms of body language based on your life experiences through your subconscious mind. You’re already equipped to tell when others are lying to you.


The likelihood of understanding your feelings about another person is entirely possible. This is something that, if you choose to work consciously on, can make you adept at becoming almost a human lie detector.


You needn’t study endless hours and several hundreds of dollars in course fees, plus learning a variety of complicated terms. With a little time and effort, you can be seen as almost psychic.


Can you be an “open-minded skeptic?”


What I’m about to describe to you may require you to have an open mind. The most suited term is to be an “open-minded skeptic.” You don’t have to believe it, just be open to the possibility.


Some years ago I taught a course at UCLA’s Experimental College on mind power and intuition. In response to a student’s question, I stumbled on a technique that enabled me to teach anyone of at least average intelligence how to tap into their intuition. In fact, the method takes only minutes to learn.


Most people will agree that they’ve had hunches in life that turned out to be accurate. You think of someone you haven’t seen in years, and suddenly they pop back in your life in some way.


One day, over lunch, I was telling a coaching client about a time when I was sure that I’d closed a client for a major corporate consulting deal. The president was all for it, then suddenly they closed the door on the program. I never knew why, and for years, whenever I thought of it, it bugged me.


After lunch, I was walking up Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills when I heard my name called. The CEO I’d just talked about and hadn’t seen in years was getting out of his car! I was shocked, and when I told him I’d just been talking about him, he looked at me with more than a little skepticism.


Over coffee, he explained the reason I didn’t get the deal was that he’d had a revolt in his board of directors. The company was wrestled away from his control along with most of his plans and programs.


Had I known the science of micro facial reading back then, would it have done me no good? He was sincere. He had the power to make the deal, and we were almost there.


However, in hindsight, I felt uneasy then about his assurances and didn’t know why. When I later reviewed our coffee meeting, I recalled he told me that he’d been concerned about his board, and had been quarreling with them. So, maybe he was afraid that every deal he was initiating might be challenged? Could that have triggered my unconscious reading of his face or body language, even though he wasn’t lying?


The technique that gives you “The Wizard’s Edge”


Part of what we call intuition comes from our subconscious. That mental catalog of lies that were accompanied by similar facial expressions will trigger that “hunch,” or uneasiness. The subconscious is only one element of intuition, but paramount in these examples.


Whenever you’ve had a hunch that seemed unlikely but turned out to be true, you also had something else. These “hunches” or accurate intuitive feelings are usually accompanied by a physical sensation. That’s where the term, “gut instinct” comes from. Some people feel it in their stomach, others have a sense of the hair on the back of their neck standing up, or just a tingling feeling.


Recall the last time your hunch was right. Feel back to that physical sensation you had. Whenever you have a hunch accompanied by that same physical response, chances are there’s something to it. That’s your “intuitive tickle.” Your “intuitive click” will come from a level of certainty that is repeated by those same but larger emotional triggers that are similar to others in the past.


Understanding these feelings, even without knowing why will give you the edge in almost any serious interaction. I call it, The Wizard’s Edge.


Three ways to use your facial reading sense


Today, if I had a verbal agreement such as I described above, and felt any unease, I’d go for a hard close right away. I’d have a deal memo or agreement signed ASAP. If we’d had a contract, it would have been much harder for the board to negate it.


When you are sensing uneasiness over any discussion or just by meeting someone one new, pay attention to it. You can’t make a judgment solely on that feeling, but you can be observant.


  1. Listen more closely.
  2. Check further, ask more questions.
  3. Either take action faster, such as a contract, or slower, depending on the situation.


From social contacts to business deals to kids, you can instantly read faces like a pro.


The key is to pay close attention to your feelings. They have meaning and can be serious warning signs that can save you heartache to dollars.

Couple Entrepreneurs: How to Make It Happen With Your Partner



Partners entrepreneurs


Have you always dreamed of having success as an entrepreneur? Thoughts of working for yourself, doing things you’re passionate about, and not worrying about working for someone else may linger in your mind most of the time. If you’re married, there is a chance that your partner has some of the same goals, and that means the two of you could eventually become a pair of successful entrepreneurs who motivate one another, continually work hard, and reach all kinds of goals that will get you both further in life.


How to Make It Work


Although you may like the idea of becoming a successful entrepreneur while your partner does the same, it’s not uncommon to have some concerns about the situation. You may worry that you’re both going to take on too much and not have enough time for one another, but that isn’t always the case. It’s all about prioritizing work, setting a schedule, and being there to support one another through the ups and downs that will eventually occur.


Before working together to achieve goals, sit down and have a full conversation about the goals you’d like to achieve and the role you’ll each take on. Both of you will need to come to an agreement to keep work and the relationship separately while being respectful to one another. You can’t expect to have success with your partner if neither of you are respecting one another or collectively sharing ideas. You’ll need to focus on communication and compromising at times to make things work on a long-term basis.


Prime Examples of Successful Entrepreneur Couples


If you’re in need of motivation and encouragement because you’re not sure how to get your start in a specific industry with your partner, it may be best for you to learn a bit more about some of the successful entrepreneur couples out there. These couples work hard to achieve their goals and they support one another in various business ventures. They put forth the effort that is required of them to consistently achieve their goals.


Chris Sacca is a successful billionaire who once was fired from a job as a lawyer and then moved on to Google where had more opportunities to learn, invest, and become the success he is today. He is now the owner of a successful venture capital fund, known as Lowercase Capital. Although he’s had much success in his career, Chris Sacca’s wife, Crystal English Sacca, is a successful entrepreneur in her own right. She’s spent most of her career creating compelling and engaging commercials as well as digital advertisements for various companies. She’s worked for several of the most popular brands, including Sprint and HBO. In addition to these accomplishments, she works as an art director. While these two individuals aren’t doing the same things, they’re a married couple supporting one another while they each work hard to achieve their own personal goals.


In addition to Chris Sacca and his wife, Stewart and Lynda Resnick are another good example of a successful entrepreneur power couple. They currently have a net worth of 3.9 billion dollars. So, what is it that they’re selling? There is a good chance you’ve consumed at least one of the many products they own and distribute, such as Fiji Water or Halos oranges. The pair met when Lynda started her own ad agency and was assisting Stewart with a project for the business he was running at that time. Over time, they started working collectively together to invest and sell assorted products to the public, many of which are naturally good for human consumption.


Do What You Love and Respect One Another


There are plenty of entrepreneur couples out there. Some are just getting started while others have been in business for decades and continue to achieve a high level of success. Although you may be focused on figuring out your passion and what you want to do to get further in life while making a decent income, it’s important to understand that it’s possible for you to achieve the same level of success as some of these people who are earning millions of dollars each year. Most people don’t become a success overnight but figuring out what you want to do and how you’re going to make it happen is a great way to get started.


In addition to figuring out what you’d love to do for the rest of your life, you’ll need to remember to always respect your partner throughout the process. The thing about these successful couples is that they’re willing to provide support and guidance, they know how to communicate, and they believe in one another. If you don’t have respect, trust, and support in the relationship, it’s going to be difficult to have success as entrepreneurs together.


If you’ve always dreamed of running your own business with your partner by your side, it’s not a dream that is too farfetched. In fact, there are lots of successful couples that are working hard, reaching goals, and living the life they’ve always dreamed of having.

How Does Sleep Affect Your Mental Health?



Sleep and Mental Health

Sleep is our body’s repair mode. Our cells, tissues, muscles, and hormones are all replenished during the deepest phases of sleep. This ensures that we are operating at our best the next day.

Experts recommend about seven (7) hours of sleep a day for an average adult. This is keeps you mentally and physically focused. But what happens when you don’t get enough? Is there a link between sleep and our mental health?


The Link Between Sleep and Mood

Even someone who isn’t an expert on the subject can appreciate how active they feel after a good night’s sleep. In contrast, one can feel exhausted, irritated, and distracted after not getting enough the night before. That’s because sleep plays an important role in your mood and performance.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania conducted a study in which the subjects were restricted sleep to only 4.5 hours each night. After a week, the subjects reported greater levels of negative emotions and mental tiredness. Once they were allowed to sleep normally however, there was a sharp improvement in their mood.

Just as sleep impacts your mood, your present state of mind also has an equivalent effect on the quality of your sleep. If you’re anxious or stressed, your body will release hormones that force you to stay awake through the night, depriving you of much-needed rest. The result is a cycle of stress and lack of sleep.

Research suggests that around 15-20 percent of people who are dealing with insomnia (an inability to fall asleep) go on to develop serious mental depression. While research is still being conducted about the exact nature of the relationship between sleep and depression, there has been enough progress to indicate a strong correlation between the two.

People who suffer from insomnia are at a significantly greater risk to develop depression or anxiety. In fact, the onset of these conditions can be accurately predicted by studying the patient’s sleep patterns.


The Link Between Sleep and Learning

In addition to your mood, sleep also appears to impact your mind’s ability to learn. Three separate processes govern learning in your brain: acquisition, consolidation, and recall.

Acquisition entails receiving information and storing it in your neural circuitry. The second process, consolidation, strengthens the neural connections in your mind so that the memory is stored in an optimally useful form. Recall is when the brain accesses this stored memory when it is needed.

Poor sleep compromises all three of these processes. However, it is acquisition and recall that are most affected by sleep deprivation. Recent research has also demonstrated that a lack of sleep can reduce the brain’s ability to consolidate information it is presented with.

Students take note: inadequate sleep may negatively affect your chances of passing that exam. Indeed, you may even find yourself forgetting how to do simple tasks. If you’ve ever been involved in back-to-back all-nighters during exam week, you may already have experienced forgetting a solution to a simple problem – even after you’d done it half a dozen times!


Dealing with Sleep Problems To Improve Mental Health

If you’re experiencing emotional apathy, anxiety, depression, or irritability, one of the steps you can take before seeking a professional is to assess your sleep situation.

Treat sleep as a ritual. Similar to reading to a child before putting them to bed, a habit that helps one disconnect from gadgets and put their mind in a relaxed mood can go a long way towards ensuring a restful, wholesome, sleep experience.

Making time before going to bed is a good idea. Avoid exposure to bright lights (such as those emitted by computer screens and smartphones). Try not to consume caffeine or alcohol, as all of these can be detrimental to the quality of sleep (and may even prevent the onset of sleep completely).

Obviously, the way you’ve set up your bed (and your entire bedroom) will also play an important role in how well you’re able to sleep. For example, memory foam mattresses are often recommended for individuals who sleep in awkward postures that can cause back pain. For some good reviews, check out The Sleep Judge.

If you can’t get rid of thoughts buzzing around in your head, you may want to listen to some natural background sounds, such as rainfall or wind rushing through trees. This will ease your mind away from distractions, helping you drift off to sleep. If you get the recommended amount, see how replenished you feel the next day!
