While science and law enforcement continue to search for the perfect lie detector, a glimpse into emotions and motivations, gained via the face, may have to suffice. Meanwhile, others have made careers in entertainment by understanding microexpressions. Witness the aptly demonstrated talents of “Honest Liar,” Jamy Ian Swiss (San Diego, Calif.).
Swiss routinely explores “the deepest recesses of deception, be it cheating and crooked gambling, con men and scam artists, lying and lie detection, or phony psychics and the illusion of psychic powers.” In his performances, he rejects any claim of paranormal abilities while deftly illustrating them all—clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, telepathy. Whether a quick take of audience members’ microexpressions underpins his deception and uncanny lie detection aptitude, Swiss will not say. He simply recites a quotation from a fellow artiste: “I have found that if one wants to create the impression of great skill, it is advantageous actually to possess great skill.”
The truth always is present in some form. Trying to control one’s facial muscles can send mixed signals, leading others to be unsure about causal intentions. Changing how we feel, inside, alters our expression on the outside. Thus, even the best liars eventually give themselves away. AI
