Can you tell if someone is lying? I wish I could, but the research says I cannot. Security professionals are the gatekeepers for risk, and the safety of others relies on our ability to get good data to make good decisions. Having good interviewing skills is critical. Response style is the psychological construct describing how an interviewee responds to your questions. Learning what that means and how to use it to your advantage takes you one step closer to being a human lie detector, or at least, a truth focused reporter of fact. After this presentation you will walk away with practical tools and greater awareness of the rubix cube of a good interview.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  1. Participants will be able to utilize new techniques to improve their interview style.
  2. Participants will be able to use the technique of cognitive load to increase truth telling
  3. Participants will be able to identify triggers for cognitive bias
