  • This is fake.

  • Never underestimate regional or national culture aspects. Although, to to start realizing what they are, you need to expose yourself to other cultures. Until you experience and observe the differences, things are "just a thing you do".

  • THATS HOW THEY CARRY FLOWERS

  • It's also amusing when someone attempts to use reverse psychology and you are there to tell them everything, and they think they were successful. Can you tell when someone uses reverse psychology?

  • Loss prevention people are very obvious.

  • Level, stature, ranking and position can make all the difference in how one reacts toward someone.

  • I feel so dumb. Sigh

  • joe: when we like things, we move our hands forward. when we don’t like things, we move them back me: well that explains why my hands are always back in school

  • Imagine for aa living watching how people move there thumbs

  • Much of this is not gospel. I had a pathological liar whom I did not believe, and he once proved me wrong.

  • Me : Calls a friend Fbi agent : AHA so when you exchanging your drugs

  • This was a very interesting video and I enjoyed it a lot. I’m going to investigate further into none verbal communication.

  • Wow, so progressive that there was not a single white male. I wonder (((who))) shot this video.

  • When it's my turn to do the dishes 5:10

  • What if I always touch my face when I talk to people?

  • He pointed out the mannerisms during the poker game, but didn't tell us what they conveyed in terms of the game. When do I raise and when do I fold?!!?!?

  • I like how he sits with his legs crossed below the chair and is holding his fingers, and in other cut he is in starting position, so he is not very comfortable to sit there, and he would like to get away

  • I would love to have a longer version of this video. More cases and examples more of the man perspective. It really makes me feel better about understanding my own nature of expressions and others as well. Really would love to see more. Do you guys know about anything of similar quality?

  • Wow, all of the functions he speaks of certainly sound like CIA functions. What happened to the wall of China?

  • This guy would need to give his assessment of Kate and Gerry McCann.

  • If you have very lengthy conversations with anyone they will eventually say what you want to hear, whether it's fatigue, annoyance whatever. Lengthy conversations are not for good confessions

  • The FBI is watching me through FR-tv or God bless them😉😉

  • 3:30: I have a very hard time believing they caught a spy with that. I also carry them like that because I happen to know its better for the flowers. So it's either luck or they had other methods to persuade him to confess.

  • Oh, he has a book to sale....

  • All designed to put pressure on people to make it easier for them to put you in a state of fear.

  • Yet, woman would carry flowers upright to admire their beauty and fragrance.

  • This is not a hard science. This fellow speaks as though he is explaining chemistry. For the most part it is largely nonsense. Folk psychology at best.

  • The meme is dead now. Stop trying to be funny

  • I've never understood why people need body language tutorials. It's so raw and instinctive that we should all master it naturally--both reading others and being aware of our own.

  • Bullsht XD

  • Just have to say there's not specific way us Europeans hold flowers surprisingly 😂👌

  • we have 13 big anatomical joints - and much more gestures. So one gesture can mean many things ; ))

  • I wonder what is brown shoes with a grey suit says about him :)

  • Me: scratching my butt FBI Agent: i needs to know all the informations about that man

  • so useful thank u 👏👏👏

  • He is lying

  • This is pure crap. Maybe she’s moving her legs because she’s obese and wants to sit. The poker game stuff is ridiculous. Some of the things mentioned I do out of choice. Nothing to do with hiding anything. One can not base assumptions off body language alone. You need multiples. Speech, fidgety, fluxing. You can’t just assume because someone grabs there shoulders.

  • sub to me if u can

  • And she stood with her knees together.... really has to pee

  • FBI: You are drunk and lying. Me: nah I got Parkin...

  • me going incognito FBI: *hol up thats illegal*

  • A lot of this was interesting.I know during WW2 Germans trying to pass as American GIs chewed Gum.Apparently,It made them seem “American” ,to cause havoc behind the Lines

  • Be careful requesting 3 beers in a German pub

  • Because it's safer for the flowers to hold them upside down, less likely that they will break. (Eastern European here.)

  • You can only be read if you sit in your minds eye rather than in the present moment - if you sit in the present moment outside of your minds eye then you will read others and see their agenda.

  • Thought he said his was Joan of Arro at the beginning

  • I wonder what this guy would think of me. I constantly move my feet while I’m standing still and I do really weird things with my hands such as wringing them while I’m having a normal conversation because I have social anxiety. Even if I don’t feel nervous at all I’m still constantly fidgeting even if it’s just moving my toes up and down

  • This man is talking rubbish. The same gestures can have a thousand different meanings.Watch his behaviour; one leg stands out affirmatively while the other draws back somewhat contortedly as though he has things to hide; he is altogether too controlled; his arms come out and he does a lot of talking with his hands as though to convince people, but not too exaggeratedly like those of Italians; he wants to appear reasonable. If I met a man like that I would steer clear of him.

  • Him talking about the flowers reminded me of Inglorious Bastards when Diane Kruger's character did the German 3 hand signal instead of the Westernized 3 hand signal. Such exquisite attention to detail. I would like to see his opinion on people who gesture when they're talking or not. I'm so animated I wonder what my body language says about me. Even when it's silent communication, my body goes into action for emphasis.

  • This is one bad mofo

  • Me: *scratches leg* FBI: *OH BOY I KNOW WHATS GOING ON!*

  • So at least 10 millions peoples now gonna start to analyze other more often lol

  • We'll never know if he was any good though if you think about it 😂🤦‍♀️

  • I would beat him down with the edge of a Dr. Seuss book. He would never catch me. I am the toughest agent and Assassin on the planet -John Wick

  • FBI = A CORRUPT AND BROKEN MACHINE

  • This is bull crap.

  • Do You Think You Know About The Bulge In My Pants? FBI: DO YOUR JOB AND INDICT TRUMP!

  • This guys full of BS

  • *walks up* *snaps to attention* "Hey, what's up guys?"

  • What if someone gives me the middle finger? Does the expert know this one?

  • Interesting. I would love to get this guy's take on Bombard's Body Language. I thought she was good but he has put considerable doubt in my mind.

  • Me: looking around// shaking leg//moving hands.. FBI: what you hiding?? Me:: nothing,,been doing meth all night.. 😤😤😤

  • "very lengthy..... conversations"

  • Ok but you have to be crazy to hold flowers upside down

  • boring...

  • This is the guy who spies on my depression memes.

  • I’ve always wanted to read people like books, but I think people would be those kinda books you start reading and then never end up past the first page for some reason

  • Rule number One. Don’t talk to the Police. Rule 2. Never talk to the FBI. Anything you say, WILL be held against you in a Court of law.

  • Duuuude, I entered and a Trojan condoms add appeared saying "I love to read... Body language"

  • Me: Sits down Him: wHeRe dId yOu hiDe tHe bOmB?!?

  • Put me in a room with this man and I will drive him crazy

  • AMERICAN TECH COMPANIES SHOULD HIRE YOU TO SPOT TECH STEALERS.

  • I rather trust most people than thinking too much on who want cheat on u.

  • Me:*Literally Dies* FBI:He's acting to fool somebody

  • Póker girl had an outfit change

  • I have ADHD I fiddle like this on a daily basis lol

  • FBI lol

  • Fascinating information but it gave me a chuckle. Because of my autism, I can't read body language. My dependence on verbal/written language and context has made it so that I rarely misunderstand what people mean if they are at all articulate. I don't play poker much but when I do, I can squelch my non-verbals almost to non-existence by selecting certain self-soothers and using set patterns that don't indicate anything. Of course, my inability to read body language negates any benefit this might provide in a poker game.

  • no one: not a single soul: youtube algorithm:

  • FBI Agent bwhahahahaha 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Hold up did he say that all East European's are holding the flower's wrong. Because I have been with a East European and he has never hold the flowers up side down that is such a lie. Also I have my arms close to me when at the table the real reason. I'm socially awkward or I'm uncomfortable if there are others I don't know or I don't like.

  • I really want to see this guy play poker

  • Interesting, but no mention of cultural differences, which can be very big.

  • Now I do believe this guy knows his stuff but sometimes I think he might be reading into these people's body movements a little bit too much. I think he might be wrong some of the times.

  • And now EVERYONE who watches this will know that their body language can be interpreted and change the manner in which they behave with a concerted effort that makes the current rules of observation outdated overnight. Way to go, genius.

  • too bad the did not use this on Comey

  • I have insomnia so my eyes are permared and it makes me twitchy/fidget; so good look with that , my guy

  • Lady, never keep your hands under the table while playing poker or any type of card game. This would‘ve gotten you shot couple of years ago

  • I can tell this guy is lying to us because of how open his mouth is when he is talking.

  • lol i carry flowers both ways i must be a spie where ever i go =D=D

  • A persons IQ is muy importante. Example a person with a low IQ caught in a lie will get very aggressive defensive immediately, high IQ process differently will look for future processes or analyze

  • Him: I know your blink rate is about eight times a minute Me: *blinks four times in three seconds*

  • the way he sits in that chair disturbs me

  • So what's that ballerina foot under the chair mean at the beginning?

  • Thought police

  • Child: I got all A’s in my SAT Father: No. Child: *I did* Father: An A- doesn’t count

  • wow fbi is pretty useless..

  • 👎👎👎

  • All of these things apply to a normal person, but in the real world most of those guys tend to be on drugs and that's when you realize you're F up because you don't know how they're going to react to, and by the time you figure it out it's too late

  • This is soo totally ace!! I love it😍
