  • The table is laid out in a way that the user can profile behavior by region of the body, gesture type, stress-level and deception-likelihood. Even variable factors like temperature, interrogator behavior and attitude toward interrogator can be factored in to create reliable results for use in any culture, country or situation.

  • It resembles the periodic table of elements because of its familiarity and easy-to-learn format.

  • We will start the tour by looking at the key, and examining what each cell has to offer.

HOVER OVER FOR INFORMATION

  • The interactive version of the Table comes in Microsoft Excel format.

  • Hovering over any cell describes each behavior and its associated interpretation.

  • The Table becomes an interactive training and analysis tool IMMEDIATELY.

THE CELLS

  • Within each cell, several factors and amplifying data are presented to either be analyzed alone, or compared with other behaviors within the structure of an interaction.

  • Conflicting Behaviors tell us that the gesture may not conform to the typically accepted translation of the meaning of the gesture or behavior.

  • Sexual propensity means that either the behavior is universal, or is more common among men or women.

  • Confirming gestures (found elsewhere on the table) amplify the commonly accepted translation of the behavior.

  • Amplifying gestures (found elsewhere on the table) give us more data and also add weight to the confirmation above.

COLOR CODING

  • Each behavior is further categorized by a color code.

  • If, for example, you saw a red (deceptive) behavior  mixed with a red-letter-only behavior, it would increase the deception rating to an automatic 4.

  • The variable behaviors, shown in blue, indicate what can be read or translated on a sliding or variable scale. 

  • Green colors are the most relaxed and solid red behaviors are indicative of the most stressful on the scale.

STRESS CONTINUUM

  • From left-to-right, stress increases. The deception likelihood also increases as you move right.
