Very boring, but contains many salient points and observations. Gotta read it numerous times to truly "get it". A great read for "profilers" or those whose job depends on "reading" people correctly. People lie with their words, but their body rarely lies.
The face provides "micro" expressions, called a "tell" in investigative jargon, which expresses an individual's feelings irrespective of what they may be saying. This book examines the myriad of facial expressions and helps make sense of them.
Big Paul Ekman fan. Great reference book for studying facial signals. Has a lot of pictures showing various emotions. In the current state of worldwide affairs, knowing how people feel is a vital skill. Knowing when people are lying, even more so.
While reading emotions might seem like a straight forward task, it is quite certainly not for most. Why is most of the populace unable to read lies when a select few can do so at will? What are micro expressions a curious mind might inquire? Excellent question. Micro expressions are very brief facial expressions lasting only a fraction of a second.
They occur when a person is either deliberately or unconsciously concealing a feeling. These emotions have universal signals: And it just so happens that individuals can be taught, or can learn by themselves how to spot these errant behaviors.
In plainspeak, in Lie To Me various methods of psychology were employed in order to ascertain whether or not people were being duplicitous. This is vital because it just so happens that the above show was in large part based on the work of behavioral psychologist Dr. Paul Ekman is an incredible book that details part of the knowledge that was used within the TV show referenced above.
In his phenomenal and fascinating book, Dr. At its core Ekman gives individuals the facial schematics to enable people to read the emotions referenced above. Along with that, the author also covers many of the psychological reasons why people carry out the actions that they do. The author also notes why many people make mistakes in reading emotions at certain times.
In cataloguing facial deceit, Ekman also narrows down facial expressions to four reasons: The author then proceeds to expound upon those four reasons at length. Coupled with that, the three management techniques individuals employ, which are simulating, neutralizing and masking, are also covered in some detail. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Excellent description of emotions. Very simple and easy step -by- step guide to recognising facial expressions. Only downside to buying the kindle version was the missing face exercises. If you are seriously looking into studying faces, buy the hard copy.
Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and
I had been wanting to get into Microexpressions for quite some time but was nervous about where to start since I was not very savvy on Psychology terms at the time but thankfully this book was the perfect gateway into it. Now that I'm on a PsyD study program, this book's knowledge is even more valuable. If you want to get started on Ekaman's books but don't know where to start, this is a great first step.
Like my review for Dr. Paul Ekman's other books, one must enjoy the topic to enjoy his books. Because his books are scientific they tend to be dry. No Downloads. Views Total views. Actions Shares.

They also include circumstances such as using only "fear brows" and how to recognize the different emotions without all the physically displayed facets of the emotion. This novel also included in these chapters the combinations of faces, such as fear-surprise, anger-contempt, or guilt-sadness.
The book didn't skip around and had many clear examples. It also had chapters on the science behind this study and the background. Also explained was why this information is useful in everyday life, even for those that aren't scientists, lawyers or law enforcement.
At the end of the book they had faces to test you on how much you learned and supporting chapters on subjects such as reading motives behind emotions, or how micro-expressions are affected by facial deceit.

The subtitle of this book is "A guide to recognizing emotions from facial expressions". The value is that it has many photos of faces expressing emotions and variations in intensity and combinations of those emotions. It's a training tool for reading faces, and it includes quizzes so you can test yourself. You may have heard of I am changing this book from currently reading to read, even though I haven't read it.
You may have heard of Paul Ekman. He's the guy on whom the character Cal Lightman on the television show Lie to Me is based.
I learned that emotions are universal, although there are some cultural effects. Happy, sad, anger, and disgust are expressed the same the world over. But what is disgusting to one culture may not be to another. Also, cultures differ in how people try to manage the appearance of their faces in different social situations.
For example, mourners may be encouraged to wail or encouraged to keep their sadness under control. The book has chapters on surprise, fear, disgust, anger, happiness, and sadness.
There is also a chapter on facial deceit. I recommend this book for people whose livelihoods depend on reading faces: Other than that, it is a good book to have around for those times when you encounter an unusual facial expression on someone with whom you interact. Jun 19, Carol Flores rated it liked it. I don't know if it's just me but most of these facial expressions are easily read if you pay attention to people's faces.
Like, if you regulary watch movies or tend to deal with clients, you'll learn nothing from this because it's a matter of simply paying attention to what's in front of you. Emotions are not that hard to understand if you're empathic or if you're at least interested in body language. Although, I really enjoyed this book but not the fact that I had to read it on an ebook version I don't know if it's just me but most of these facial expressions are easily read if you pay attention to people's faces.
Although, I really enjoyed this book but not the fact that I had to read it on an ebook version, so, every time I had to go forward and back to see the pictures. Oct 09, Mary Overton added it.

For example, middle-class, urban, white, adult males in the United States follow the display rule of not showing fear in public. Their female counterparts in the pre-matron or pre-maternal role follow the display rule of not showing anger in public. Originally, you may learn the display rule by being told what to do and not to do, or you may learn it by observation and imitation without ever being specifically instructed. Once learned, display rules operate as habits, much like driving a car.
You don't think about what you are doing unless you find you have made a mistake. People pause to consider what display rule to follow only if they are in strange circumstances display rules vary from culture to culture or if they can't figure out what the situation is, what their role is, what is expected of them. Sometimes display rules are more specific in prohibiting a particular facial expression only in a particular role or social situation. For example, at middle-class American weddings, the bride may publicly cry or look sad, as may her parents, but not the groom or his parents For example, at funerals the mourners should adjust their own expressions of grief in relation to the grief of others.
There seems to be a pecking order of legitimate claims to grief Their role in social life is the first, most widely shared reason people control their facial expressions.
A personal display rule may also be quite general; histrionic persons customarily over-intensify all emotional expression A third reason for facial control is vocational requirement. Actors, obviously, must be skilled in managing their facial expressions. So must good diplomats, trial attorneys, salesmen, politicians, doctors, nurses, and perhaps even teachers The embezzler must falsely show surprise when the theft is discovered.
The husband must inhibit the smile of pleasure on encountering his lover, if in the presence of his wife. But all four reasons for controlling facial expression can involve false messages or the omission of messages. It is just that society condemns lying more if it is done for personal gain Rather than calling the process lying, we might better call it message control, because the lie itself may convey a useful message.
