Micro Expressions Solutions is one of the very few Micro Expressions, Body Language, Deception Detection & Nonverbal Communication Truth & Lie Detection training facilities of its kind in the world - as well as the only IMEXA Accredited and Credentialed training facility not only in South Africa but the Southern Hemisphere.  

Macro Expressions as well as the very subtle, brief and involuntary facial Micro Expressions which often times go unnoticed are extensively covered in our courses. Furthermore paralinguistic styles, tone of voice and hand to face gestures all reveal vital information mostly undetected by the untrained eye and ear in detecting lies and deception. 


You will be able to visually detect Micro Expressions and verbally detect unique words & phrases in written or verbal statements through our own unique method called SCAPE. (Statement Credibility Assessment and Practical Evaluation.)


Faces, bodies and the spoken word never lie. Behavioural cues can be found in very subtle intensities that a person may be busy telling a lie or hiding something with the intention to deceive or mislead the victim.


The human face contains 44 muscles that can show isolated and specific facial Macro and Micro Expressions as well as various emotions such as: Pain, Distrust, Attraction, Enjoyment, Shame, Guilt, Embarrassment, Awe, Despair, Ecstasy, Skepticism, Distress, Amusement, Excitement, Pride, Relief, Satisfaction and Sensory Pleasure to name but a few.


However there are 7 main universal facial expressions which are the same throughout the world regardless of race, country or culture.  They are Fear, Disgust, Anger, Happiness, Sadness, Surprise and Contempt.  


At Micro Expressions Solutions the individual is equipped to look beyond Micro Expression observations to detect lies, deception and misleading behaviour. Many times the clues are concealed and not falsified - not in what is said, but rather in what is not said - not in what is shown, but in what is not shown.


For example; a person being questioned may not volunteer vital information to you since they will only tell you what they want you to know (concealment). This however could leave you, the listener, with a misconception, or even create further confusion when they fail to correct pre-existing misconceptions.  This is called ‘Lying by omission’.  


It can be much more challenging to detect lying, dishonesty and deception with a person that may have had enough time to properly prepare their lies and work out their story to near perfection.  If the person telling the lie actually believes what they tell you to be the truth, it is not really a lie to them anymore and they may actually seem to start believing their own lies.  This could influence their facial Micro Expressions as well as the truth, lie and deception detection process.


There are many more examples of the different types of lies and lying techniques which are covered in the “Micro Expressions & Truth & Lie Detection” study programmes.

Our Services

Micro Expressions Solutions uses the latest techniques in Micro Expressions analysis. With careful observations we can train a person to detect Lying, Deception and other forms of dishonesty amongst staff, clients, suppliers and managerial teams.

For example; a competitor suddenly launched a brilliant marketing strategy or product idea that your company has been developing over a period of time. The possibility exists that an employee leaked this vital information. With the proper training, knowledge and skills acquirement offered by us it might be possible to identify the persons involved.


Understanding Micro Expressions and Nonverbal Communication will be of immense value during pre employment screening interviews.  This is a great additional and useful skill for any HR Manager or recruitment agency personnel. You will be much better equipped to distinguish between honest and dishonest applicants without them even being aware that they would not be able to deceive you.


Included in the training material are discussion methods as well as clues to deceit that would be easily detectable during an interview. It is a disturbing reality that many people blatantly lie and misinform, for example - their future employer by either adding false credentials or withholding vital information, especially in the current economical climate.


We will show you how to subtly question, listen to voice and word usage clues as well as gestures to determine if someone is being honest with you.  We will help you correctly interpret not only possible lies but also the truth.


Micro Expressions Solutions’ nonverbal communication private training seminars and self study course will also equip and assist you and your company with departmental or internal investigations.


Our interviewing methods for lie,  truth and deception detection are unobtrusive and no Polygraph testing machines or any other instruments are required or used. No FBI style interrogation methods are applied.  No intimidation, fear or shock tactics are employed and this ensures that the person being interviewed will unknowingly be far more co-operative since they are not intimidated or coupled to foreign devices.  


Micro Expressions Solutions places a very high regard on human dignity and it is expected of every student undertaking this self study programme to always treat every person being interviewed or questioned with the highest regard, guilty or not.


The cost of a Polygraph test or Digital Voice Stress Analysis may be prohibitive for smaller companies.  The value of the Micro Expressions & Nonverbal Communication programme will surely proof to be a great asset for every individual and company who chooses to follow this route.


We also offer assistance with regards to serious high profile cases relating to any of the following:

Workplace Dishonesty, Fraudulent Insurance Claims, Fraud, Arson, Deceiving and Misleading Staff Behaviour.


If you require more information about assisting your internal investigation at your company to offer valuable assistance then feel free to contact us.

Did you know?

A Micro Expression is an involuntary, slight and brief expression on a human's face when a person is trying to deliberately hide or suppress an emotion. It will mostly occur in high stakes situations when a person has something to lose or gain.  It can easily be missed and most investigators don't see it at all - not because they can't, they just don't know what to look for.


Micro Expressions are not as scientific and psychological in nature as many people tend to believe.  Anyone can gain the knowledge to identify Micro Expressions and acquire the necessary knowledge to properly interpret it if they commit themselves.  You do not need to be a Psychologist or a Scientist to be able to properly understand and utilise it. 


It very easy to think of a lie, but it is not easy to effectively communicate it.  We use one part of our brain to tell the truth and three parts to lie.


Unlike regular facial expressions, very few people can fake a Micro Expression.


For every lie told up to three additional lies have to be created to support the first lie.  So lying becomes increasingly difficult to maintain since the lies have to increase exponentially.  An individual will need to be an Oscar winning actor with super human memory capabilities to maintain constant lying.  People telling the truth does not go through that rationalisation process since they can recall their facts by memory.


Some muscles that are used for facial and Micro Expressions are subconsciously controlled and that makes it nearly impossible to manipulate. The face of the person being questioned can show Micro Expressions that they are not even aware of. 


In most cases when a person tries to conceal strong emotions e.g. anger, the expressions can make it evident for a fraction of a second that they may be lying or trying to mislead or deceive the listener.

It is the same with smiles.  Different muscles are used when you give someone a genuine happy smile opposed to a fake smile.


A Human Truth, Lie and Deception Detector detects lies in a different way compared to a Polygraph Machine or Digital Voice Stress Analysis. For example; a very slight hand or finger movement can give the person being questioned away that may otherwise have not been detected by a Polygraph machine or the Polygraph examiner. In the case that the person being questioned may have been silent during the slight hand movement the Digital Voice Stress Analysis will not detect any unusual behaviour either.


Although Polygraph tests are immensely accurate they do require compliance.  The person being interviewed needs to be connected with cables to a machine and that may cause discomfort and distress.  With Micro Expressions and Nonverbal Communication knowledge  you have a much more unobtrusive way to deal with lie detection.


The 2009/2010 Fox Hit TV Series Lie to Me was inspired by Micro Expressions and associated science.

Course Descriptions:


Interactive MicroExpressions Online Training Tool

3 Levels of Difficulty to Test your newly acquired skills 24/7

Free for all existing and new students - Available Now!

MicroExpressions & Nonverbal Communication - Part I  (MEX.1)

MEX.1 Study Programme Entry Requirements:

Anyone may apply to enroll.


MEX.1 Study Programme Description:

In the MEX.1 study programme you will learn about Micro Expressions, the 7 Unversal Emotions, Nonverbal Communication & New Body Language.


The importance of understanding and correctly interpreting MicroExpressions and Nonverbal Communication can not be stressed enough.  It is by no means possible to immediately be accurate with truth, lie & deception detection without first understanding the basic fundamentals.


Being able to identify a MicroExpression does not mean that you will be able to correctly interpret if a person is busy lying, misleading or deceiving you.  They may be terrified just by the thought of being interviewed.  In this course the difference between lying about feelings and feelings about lying will be discussed for a greater understanding of the subject.  


People can show fear, but it can be the fear being caught when they did something wrong or the fear of being disbelieved when the person thinks he or she may not be believed. 


Misinterpretations may have devastating effects for the person being interviewed. 


It is never our aim to try and make it difficult for our students.  We however need to be sure that you have a good overall understanding of what you have learned.


We monitor and follow progress with all the students.  You are not just supplied with study material and left on your own.  Student support is available for all students.


MEX.1 Study Programme Difficulty and Duration:

The MEX.1 study programme is not difficult but may be intensive with regards to the amount of information.  It can be completed between 3 to 6 months depending on the student.  (Max. 24 Months.)
