The Psychology of Job Interviews II. - Advanced Techniques

The Drill

Even the best behavioral analyst will only reach a maximum success rate of 60% when analyzing testimonies, without having personally spoken to the individual at hand. This probability increases to 9096 when the analyst has a chance to speak to the person and ask additional questions. Psychology in the Interview II.- Advanced Techniques, the follow-up course for graduates of Psychology in Interview I, will train participants to apply Paul Ekman's methodology when conducting an interview. Participants will learn to compose questions that aim at verifying so-called HoT spots (parts of testimonies that may be incomplete or false). The methodology will be demonstrated directly on guests- we will test general methods of lie detecting, specializing on conducting interviews with real people in real-time (no role-play exercises or professional actors).
