  • Former FBI agent and body language expert Joe Navarro breaks down the various ways we communicate non-verbally. What does it mean when we fold our arms? Why do we interlace our fingers? Can a poker player actually hide their body language?

    The correct way to carry cut flowers other than after presentation to their recipient IS upside down, maintaining any residual moisture flow to the flower head.

    "Humans are lousy at detecting deception."
    It's mostly done by intuition.
    You can't detect deception but you could make them slip up easily. You just need a good bluff and a better poker face.

    Aha, with how I was raised, plus anxiety and PTSD, people tell me that I come off as always being aggressive and angry, even though I am rarely feeling either of those things. One of the reasons I adore my therapist is because she can actually read my body language now that we've gotten to know each other... I wonder what this guy would think. xD

    So that bar scene in " inglorious bastards" where the English spy(Michael Fassbender) who was playing as a German officer was actually possible. Using the wrong hand gesture exposed him and got everyone killed. That's crazy!

    What if people learn how to mimic certain behaviors in order to fool the FBI? For example, two spies both decoy body language for the real spy. Kinda like a flash mob spy session.
