What Do Your Eyes Tell the World?

The eyes are the windows to the soul.

Have you ever thought about what your eyes are telling the world about your thoughts, emotions and intentions? Here at the Science of People, we’ve looked at eyes and eye movement for human lie detection, to uncover hidden emotions and to decode facial expressions.

Do you know when someone is lying to you?

We like to think we are great at spotting lies—but on average we can only detect deception with about 54% accuracy. That’s barely better than chance!

I believe learning how to spot deception is a life skill.

We should all know how to have more honest interactions. We should all be able to protect ourselves from liars. We should all be able to decode hidden emotions.

That is what our new course is all about.

I want to teach you how to:

  • Improve your lie-spotting abilities to up to 90% accuracy
  • Decode hidden emotions
  • Increase the honesty of your interactions
  • Learn the secrets of body language

Here’s the best part. All it takes is 100 minutes.
