The communication between people is mainly composed by non-verbal communication where 55% of the message approximately is emitted by the body represented in gestures and emotions. It is this condition that makes it very important to know how to detect not so much what is spoken but rather what is transmitted, the called verb-body analysis, in the whole of the codification of the message, tackled from criminology as a real discipline.
The verb-corporal analysis of emotions is a valuation that is made of people to contrast if what is said is congruent with the emotions expressed by the body detecting signs of deception or personal tendencies towards what is expressed. Thus, with the facial muscles we show a double message that joins the verbal message. On the one hand what we want to communicate, while on the other what we want to hide. The verb-corporal analysis of emotions is not an infallible method of detecting lies, but rather to detect signs that truth is being concealed or falsifying the response. That is why today many security professionals specialize in detecting these inconsistencies.
