Lie to Me

 

I’m going to try and make this a short post because, honestly, I’m really excited about this app and could go on and on about it. I’ve always had a “gift” for reading people’s body language. I’m good at getting a certain “vibe” from people and learning a thing or two from it. Being in a certain predicament that I’m in at the moment, I wanted to really learn more about body language and how subtle hints give way to what people are really thinking and doing. So like anyone (including Oprah’s dog) I asked my friends on Twitter if there are any good books available that could help me. One friend told me to pick up the book “The Definitive Book of Body Language” by Alan and Barbara Pease. I read the book in a matter of days…absolutely loved it. When telling my friends of all the new information I’ve learned, my friend Brian said, “Dude get me a beer”. And then he said, “Man, you need to watch Lie to Me (iTunes link)”. I caught an episode on television and then instantly downloaded the series via iTunes. The show’s based on Paul Ekman’s studies of rapid facial movements and of course, lying. I’m currently devouring more books I won’t bore you with here but like the commercial says, “there’s an app for that”.

 

 

Body Talk (iTunes link) is an application that makes you piss yourself when you see it. Alright, I pissed myself when I saw it. It contains almost everything I’ve been reading about regarding body language. You simply scroll around looking for the gesture you just saw, look at the picture they have provided OR (and this is the cool part) you can watch a short clip in action (what’s really nice is that you stay in the app and are not taken to some website…I hate when apps do that).

 

 

And to top it all off, it contains a book that also is launched in the application itself. I’ve only read the introduction but it seems like a worthy read if you’re new to body language. I’m really excited that I have this information on my phone and can study “on the go”. I could go on and on but I won’t. I need to do some more studying.
