Book Review: You Say More Than You Think By Janine Driver | Law Enforcement & Security Consulting

Understanding body language, non-verbal communication is not done in an effort to read other people’s minds. Instead reading micro expressions and gestures is about getting an understanding of the situation, or establishing situation awareness based on the ongoing and evolving circumstances, peoples words and actions. Yes, what they say, their words, and then through a highly developed and fluid running Boyd Cycle, observation, orientation, decision and action cycle, that is, you establish a baseline pattern of what’s normal and then look for changes or deviations in that person(s) baseline. This equals what Janine Driver defines in her great book “You Say More Than You Think” as “Hotspots” areas that alert us to anxiety, stress or potential deception.
