Learn How you can Read Others: Discover Truth about Lies Workshop
How do we know if somebody is telling the truth? How can we look at somebody when they’re talking to us and discern the difference between a truthful comment and one rooted in deception (lies)?
This is a fundamental skill that can be developed and honed over time. What about in self-improvement? Receiving feedback and coaching can provide a tremendous amount of information, so how do we discern the most important points compared to those that may not be as genuine or critical?
Learning to read others is a powerful communicative skill that doesn’t come naturally. There are numerous factors that play into one’s ability to effectively read another person, including social parameters, culture, native language, and even where they earned their education.
Successful communication is built on the foundation of being able to accurately and effectively read others and interpret a wide range of cues and clues the other individual or group of people are exhibiting.
The Benefits of Reading Others
By improving your ability to read others and accurately discern truth from a false narrative, genuine concern from false pretense, or flat out lies from facts, you will develop significant skills in a variety of areas of your life, including:
Many Aspects to Reading Others
We communicate in multiple ways every single time we’re talking to another person. We also communicate even when we aren’t talking (ie. listening).
Just a few of the aspects important to effectively reading others are:
A frown, smile, distracted look, gazing out the window, repetitive yawning, etc. are all clues that can provide valuable insight into determining what the listener or even speaker is feeling or thinking at that moment.
Many nonverbal signals beyond just facial expressions can reveal a great deal about a person and their thoughts. Body language includes, but is not limited to, posture when standing or sitting, use of hands and arms in expression, even distance from one another.
The tone, rhythm, pace, volume, and pitch are all crucial components of effectively reading others. Sometimes, a person can pay too much attention to one or two of these aspects and discern the wrong meaning.
The flow of words, the language used, structure, contradictions, and even the words we choose details can help us more accurately read into what others are communicating.
The actual words we say or write will give a great foundation to understanding inherent meaning in the context.
