“Without doubt, this book is the most important contribution to research and practice in lie detection to be published in years. For the first time research about verbal, nonverbal and physiological correlates of truth telling and deception are reviewed comprehensively in one text. This book will benefit those who have to decide whether people are telling the truth or lying, because it both reviews contemporary research and provides practical guidelines.” Frans Willem Winkel, Free University of Amsterdam President EAPL (European Association of Psychology and Law) This book is aimed at students, academics and professionals in psychology, criminology, policing and law.
Intuition is an extremely powerful force.
If you think something is wrong, chances are you are right. Experience has made me almost a pro at knowing when I’m being lied to or whether I should be suspicious of someone.
It sucks, but when, deep down, you feel something is not right, you should listen to yourself. You will start to put pieces together.
You are noticing it for a reason. You caught a glimpse of a text message weeks ago? You remember something he or she said to you on your first date that is now resurfacing?
When you start to put the pieces together, your suspicions will, without a doubt, be right.
I am telling you, if you don’t listen to anything else I say, listen to this: Intuition is your best friend.
It is so powerful, you simply cannot ignore it, so don’t. Step back and reevaluate.
Understand that this feeling may never go away then decide what you will do with it. If you choose to ignore it, be prepared for the consequences.
Now, are you ready for the big twist to this story? Sometimes, it is your fault that you got played.
You saw all these signs, and your gut was trying to tell you something was not right.
You chose to ignore it because you didn’t want to totally lose this person who had so much potential in your life.
Of course, knowing that you should walk away doesn’t sound all that fabulous, so you don’t.
And guess what? You got played, and the only one who got hurt from it was you. And really, it is your fault for letting it happen. That’s the cold, hard truth.
You have something he or she wants.
Ever offered to help with something? Isn’t it funny how someone will swoon for you, sweet talk you and make you feel like the only person in his or her world until he or she gets what he or she wanted?
You helped this person in one way or another, so now, the person doesn’t have to try so hard.
He or she will step back and push you away a little bit because he or she doesn’t really need anything from you anymore.
You played your part, so now you have to go. Or maybe, he or she doesn’t really want you to go for good, but you are no longer a top priority. You will know when that happens. Timing is everything.

There’s a really old joke that’s almost a cliché; “Enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think about my new haircut?” This joke approaches being a cliché because it is the embodiment of someone who is wrapped up in himself or herself.
Don’t be this way. Take an active and genuine interest in other people. You’ll build better relationships, but you’ll also get to learn some pretty interesting things about some cool people. Everybody has a story. Your life will be richer if you take the time to learn other people’s stories.
Cathy and I know a few people who love to talk about themselves, but show very little interest in us. We’re polite; so when we meet them in a social setting, we’ll usually ask a few questions about them and their families. Both of us are genuinely interested in people, so we can keep a conversation going for quite a while just by asking questions whose answers we would like to hear.
