Distancing Language

Posted: December 4, 2009 in Mentalism

Its been a while since my last blog, so I decided to post something up about distancing language. Now in a moment I’m going to post a clip of one of the worlds most famous lies, and thats Bill Clinton denying he had sexual relations with Lewinsky. Heres the clip

On watching the clip, two things jump out at me straight away. He says “I did not have sexual relations with THAT women”

Notice he uses the word “that” this is classed as distancing language because by saying the sentence like that, hes putting himself further away from her. Another thing that has jumped out at me is the way he is pointing, when someones telling the truth their eyes will usually be looking in the same direction that they’re pointing, but in this case he is pointing one way, while looking the other way, this is yet another indications that he was lieing, and indeed it was later found out that he was lieing.
