How To Spot Lies – Interview With Fraud Prevention Expert Pamela Meyer by Yana Prokopets, Bitrix24

Pamela Meyer is founder and CEO of Calibrate, a leading deception detection training company based in Washington DC. Before writing the bestselling book, Liespotting, she spent years with a team of researchers surveying all of the research findings on deception, and underwent extensive training in facial micro-expression identification, interrogation skills and statement analysis. She is a Certified Fraud Examiner, has an MBA fr om Harvard, a Masters in Public Policy. Her TED Talk, “ How to Spot a Liar” is one of the top 20 talks of all time.

In your book Liespotting you refer to a deception epidemic in the USA. Is the situation so serious that we can already speak about epidemic?

Pamela Meyer: Yes, unfortunately it is. According to several studies we are lied to anywhere from 10 to 200 times a day—sure some lies are white lies constructed for the sake of social dignity (“honey you don’t look fat in that!”) but a large portion of the lies we hear are consequential. Anne Applebaum of the Washington Post, suggests we are living in a “post fact world”. Lying in the political sphere has gotten out of hand, and, because people tend to dismiss things that challenge their preconceived notions of the world, fact checkers can only play a small part in remedying the problem.

Get To The Truth

People–friends, family members, work colleagues, salespeople–lie to us all the time. Daily, hourly, constantly. None of us is immune, and all of us are victims. According to studies by several different researchers, most of us encounter nearly 200 lies a day.

Now there’s something we can do about it. Liespotting links three disciplines–facial recognition training, interrogation training, and a comprehensive survey of research in the field–into a specialized body of information developed specifically to help business leaders detect deception and get the information they need to successfully conduct their most important interactions and transactions.

Some of the nation’s leading business executives have learned to use these methods to root out lies in high stakes situations.
