What the face reveals focused on examining Ekman and Friesen’s (1969) study about detecting deceit through observation of facial expression. According to Ekman and Friesen, most people tend to feign their facial expressions rather than disguise emotions through gestures or by using foot or hand movements for they think that observers notice more of facial expressions than body gestures. Ekman &amp. Friesen main hypothesis reveals that there was more accuracy when observers attempt to detect deceit by merely viewing a liar’s body than when the observers attempt to view the face, or the face and gestures at the same time. 1 Communication Situation In the selected reading (What the face reveals), Ekman and Friesen communicates among the readers about deception through facial expressions, that in order not to be deceived of the truth by facial expressions such as mask smiling, it is important to observe the macroexpression of the individual as a whole. In a communication situation for instance, verbal communication (what the individual says) together with non-verbal communication (hand and foot gestures, and other muscular movements on the face) should be measured. To describe the outcome of the communication situation, it is a masquerade of truth wherein the face or facial expression of the liar attempts to mislead the interviewer/observer.

During a mock interview, the interviewer communicates in a way that there is an existing eye contact with the interviewee. moreover, to apply what we learned from Ekman and Friesen’s theory, we have learned that even though the face could mislead untrained eye, gestures and other involuntary expressions might still leak in spite of attempted deceit and lie. ——————————————– 1 Ekman P., &amp. Friesen, W. V. (1969). Nonverbal leakage and clues to deception. Psychiatry, 32, 88-105. 4 In the kind of context described, it is necessary to establish rapport with the applicant or interviewee and this shall be observed during the conversation proper. say for instance, smiling and nodding usually occurs when the interviewer affirms that he/she understands the interviewee’s response or that he/she understands what the interviewee is saying. On the other hand, positive emotions and felt facial expressions are elicited by both the interviewer and interviewee should real communication take place. Otherwise, when negative emotions are masked carefully, observer can infer that this lie is executed by an applicant/interviewee, or whoever student is nervous, intimidated, and the like.
