Jeff Hancock was one of my professors at Cornell University. I had the privilege of taking a class with him called “Deception Detection.” It was by far one of my favorite classes during my undergrad experience in New York. His research was not only intriguing back then, it is still relevant today. I use those very same concepts during investigations every time I conduct a forensic interview.
While watching an in-flight movie recently, I came across a segment of Ted Talks featuring Jeff speaking about lies in the digital era. If detecting lies is important in your job or if you simply want a different take on the subject for your personal life, take a few minutes to watch this video.
