Body Language Analysis

How it works

Body Language Analysis involves a detailed analysis of human behaviour, to glean additional information and highlight areas of concern. It narrows down on microexpressions and other involuntary nonverbal communication signals, picking up on concealed emotions–true emotions–and mismatches between spoken words and body language.

Nonverbal communication signals occur in response to a stimulus (e.g. your words, their words, an event), within the moment–they're reactive. This doesn’t stem from the area in the brain responsible for cognitive thought or spoken language. It stems from a more primitive part of the brain, the part concerned with survival. This makes it more honest and therefore reliable as an indicator of emotion. 

Body Language Analysis is accurate in pinpointing where there lies an issue. It tells us where to dig deeper. A large amount of hidden information can be discovered.


Body Language Analysis

What can be determined?

  • True emotional state

  • Discomfort

  • Likes and dislikes, towards a topic, person or object

  • Subtle to extreme stress

  • Deviation from baseline behaviour

  • Mismatch between words and behaviour

  • Red flags indicating possible deception

  • New lines of investigation or questioning

NB. Nonverbal responses occur within the moment, relating to what is being said. They are therefore accurate and reliable indicators of emotion, adding a lot more meaning to each verbal statement.

Detecting Lies–the Process

Universal and involuntary nonverbal communication signals.

Some nonverbal communication cues are universal–innate within all people, across all cultures. And some are involuntary–meaning we aren't in control of or aware of them.

It's these universal and involuntary cues that help guide us to the truth–they give us accurate, in the moment, insight into a persons thoughts and emotion. It's, primarily, these cues that we look for during a nonverbal communication analysis. 

Together–we hold the key to the truth.

Observation of these cues is an essential part of the process of getting to the truth. It's a unique skill set that not many people have, especially at this level. Even if you know what to look for, it's difficult to spot without years of practise. We can do this part for you, yet this isn't where the magic lies.

The magic happens when you, as the investigator, use the information, that we discover, to guide you to the truth.


  Body Language Analysis

3 steps to the truth

  1. Send us your video recording of the investigative interview.

  2. We'll analyse it and send you an in-depth report, highlighting areas of concern and potential deception, and additional hidden information about your suspect/case.

  3. You, as the investigator, use the new, specific, information to conduct further lines of inquiry.

What is nonverbal communication?

Nonverbal communication is an umbrella term that captures several areas:

  • Body Language–posture, gait, stance, gestures, movement within space, etc.

  • Facial Expressions–macroexpressions (around ½ - 4 seconds), microexpressions (less than ½) and subtle expressions (intensity).

  • Vocal Delivery–how words are delivered, tone, inflexion, intonation, um's, er's, volume, etc.

  • Outward Aspect–how we present ourselves, personal grooming and hygiene, clothing, colours, etc

All of these signal something, to other people, whether it's deliberate or not, or accurate or not.
