The What does your body language reveal about you article on explains how communication is not all verbal, with over 60-70% of communication being non verbal. The limbic brain is responsible for producing body language communication, as this is an automatic unconscious reaction we all use each and every day. When we are emotional, our body will leak emotional evidence that is picked up, often unconsciously by others. Emotional leakage can be positive as an example flirting or negative, as an example being deceitful.

The article gives example of leakage “Touching your face while speaking – rubbing your nose, eyes, ears, head or neck – shows doubt in what you’re saying or hearing” The key to detecting deceit is not by “knowing” what a certain posture means, as they all have several meanings. A man with folded hands could be “guarded” or simply just cold. You need to know the persons baseline, how they act in everyday situations and watch for changes in their baseline with tone, body language, gestures and words. One change alone isn’t enough to know that someone is being deceitful, you need to find clusters and be able to notice changes in their baseline.
