How Science Can Teach You to Easily Spot a Liar
Usual psychobabble garbage. "Liars look you in the eyes too much." First, what the hell is too much? Second, I TRAINED myself to look people in the eye to demonstrate respect for them and what they're saying. It's also a negotiating tool and helps concentrate on listening to that person. While not a scientific sample, it's helped me a great deal. I had a boss who gave me crap about the meter I used when speaking, saying he was worried "others' would think I wasn't being honest. That asshole was also a fan of these pseudo-scientific behavioural books.
