Vocabulary Shift...

words in mouth

One of my favorite topics to teach and write about is Investigative Statement Analysis...the analysis of the words people use when communicating. Having this skill provides an interviewer or investigator with tremendous insight into the thoughts and actions of the person you are talking with, leading to insights of truthfulness or deception, as well as implementing an effective questioning strategy. As we wind down 2016 and head towards 2017, give some thought to the words YOU use. I'm not talking about from an investigative or interviewing perspective, but from a personal perspective. Just as we teach with Investigative Statement Analysis, the words people use provide great insight into the person we are talking with, and they provide insight into you as well. I came across an article today which suggested "shifting" your vocabulary to be more happy, successful and fulfilled in life. Check out the article here. Words are powerful...use them wisely!  :-)
