5 Ways to Detect Lying Clients by Reading Their Facial Cues [INFOGRAPHIC]

by Staff Writers | The Web Writer Spotlight: Sep 9, 2013

The truth lies not in what people say. It is what they say and what they do while they say it that speaks the truth. The truth is revealed through microexpressions, subtle changes in the face that happens for only a fraction of a second.
