Resolve Never To Be Lied To Again

Nonverbal cues often occur in what is called a “gesture cluster” – a group of movements, postures and actions that reinforce a common point. Clusters play a key role in your growing ability to spot lies. A single nonverbal cue can have several meanings or mean nothing at all, but when it is reinforced by at least two other nonverbal signals, the meaning becomes more apparent.
According to research by David DeSterno of Northeastern University, there is one specific cluster of nonverbal cues that proved statistically to be a highly accurate indicator of deception. The “telltale four” body language signals that are associated with duplicity are hand rubbing, face touching, crossing arms, and leaning away.
