Body language sends subtle messages

In an online forum, a classmate raises a point about the importance of body language, especially its subliminal messaging.

A few years ago, I discovered a TV series, “Lie to Me,” archived in online video. The protagonist, Dr. Lightman, is famed for his ability to interpret “microexpresssions” and body language during criminal investigations.

The first season, especially, I found very educational because Dr. Lightman isolated and explained what these captured expressions meant.

(In later episodes, the explanations were dropped and these were far less valuable to me as educational resources.)
