Body language expert: Casey Anthony showed sadness; Cindy Anthony lied on stand – National Crime | Examiner.com
Right after I post about an independent blog I read regarding body language and the Anthony case, the prosecution decides to hire an expert in this regard. Whereas a year ago I may have thought this specialty to be somewhat esoteric, I have since come to view it differently. We are all interconnected at a very basic level and intuitively we can learn to recognize in others gestures and facial expressions that are universal in nature. The book “Blink” by best selling author Malcolm Gladwell delves into this fascinating topic in depth with anecdotal and scientific support from many seemingly unconnected fields. He teaches us to “listen with our eyes”, as our ASL counterparts do. For an engrossing summary of the concept without having to read the whole book (although I heartily recommend it), go here.
