In-Your-Face: Can Computers Catch You Telling a Lie?

In-Your-Face: Can Computers Catch You Telling a Lie? | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

A popular school of thought, dramatized in the recent TV drama Lie to Me, is that a careful study of facial expressions—especially eye movements—tells investigators if a perp is dissembling. Reality is neither as dramatic nor as decisive. Even experienced investigators average only about a 65 percent success rate, according to researchers. Could computers do a better job?

"Researchers at the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York (U.B.), claim their video-analysis software can analyze eye movement successfully to identify whether or not a subject is fibbing 82.5 percent of the time." . . .

Body Language Is More Important Than You Think — and It Can Even Outweigh Your IQ | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
When it comes to success, it's easy to think that people blessed with brains are inevitably going to leave the rest of us in the dust, but social psychologist Amy Cuddy knows first-hand how attitude can outweigh IQ.
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

Be Thanked for Running a Great Meeting

Be Thanked for Running a Great Meeting | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

"It is possible for meetings to be effective and efficient. In fact, you can actually structure and run meetings that people are excited to attend. But it takes preparation, a smooth preamble, and effective paraphrasing. In other words, you need to be mindful of the 3 P’s."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"How many dental appointments can you pretend to have in one month before your boss questions you? The answer is five.

 

"You see, I used this excuse (among many others) to get out of a regular meeting that I was supposed to attend during my first job right out of graduate school.

"This meeting — like many meetings — was a massively inefficient waste of time. I would go to great lengths to miss this weekly time-stealing abyss, including once letting air out of my car tires so that I would have to meet the tow truck when it arrived and thus avoid the dreaded meeting."

Are You Made to Persuade? A Self-Test | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

"Successful persuasion requires intellectual heavy lifting. Understanding your target, knowing how to increase the value of your offering, choosing the right words and determining the timing of your persuasive efforts all are prerequisites of effective persuasion."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

 

"No approach or technique can guarantee persuasion success, but there are ways to determine if you are, indeed, made to persuade.

"In professional settings, persuasive people are:

Assertive: Inclined to be bold and self-assured.
Empathetic: Possessing the ability to see the world from another person’s perspective.
Communicative: Adept at applying verbal and nonverbal communication.
Tenacious: Extremely persistent in adhering to or accomplishing something.

9 Nonverbal Ways to End Conversations

9 Nonverbal Ways to End Conversations | Teaching Interpersonal Communication in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

'You can almost hear the clock ticking in the background. The deadline for your presentation is just minutes away and you are nowhere close to finishing it. The reason? A talkative colleague who loves sharing his stories with you and being in the limelight just won't quit! He is done for the day and decides to visit you and share a bit of his day with you, failing to pay heed to the presentation slides open on your computer.

 

We face such people everyday – be it in the driveway to the office, in the lobby, during lunch break, or even in more formal settings like a meeting or negotiation. The question then is: how do you tell such people that you are no longer interested in what they have to say or that it is someone else's turn to make a point?
