Former FBI Agent Explains How to Read Body Language | Tradecraft | WIRED


  • Why would a former FBI agent reveal secrets on RU-tv? Guys, come on now....

  • You'll have your look, your pretty face. And don't underestimate the importance of BODY LANGUAGE

  • Imagine dating his daughter.

  • But no one in their right mind would dress, like this, look like this, etc.on purpose. Without absolute control, to be forced, to look like this for a particular purpose. Etc etc etc

  • The countless things done, to create a profile, a look, etc. All of which in my opinion has been absolutely, intentional. This includes in the medical care, etc.

  • The extremely wrong assessments, what is thought is being done. Following my church, fully, etc. But also being moved to where we were moved to.

  • As many times, myself, in jobs, or before with other family jobs, family jobs, etc.

  • We had to have the back ground checks, etc.

  • Now my family, our veteran status. Who we were forced to hire, in saving the house, etc.

  • When our family was relocated, to Ohio. We were packed out then relocated, to Ohio. Everything was gone through. On both ends, and following that submission. Etc.

  • No longer. Social environments improvements, enough to appease what have to go through. Etc.

  • This state does not deserve people that serve in positions. Or in the military, etc. But by all means no one would wear, what they have to wear, what is available. Or do without basic needs, dentures. Teeth, etc. Hair care. I literally cried, when I got my Paul mitchel again. After yrs of being forced to live with suave hair care. You cannot possibly imagine the abuses. Or buy a make model of a vehicle you would want to buy? That is laughable in this extremely abusive, state.

  • Financial controls, are the foundational basis, to the very fact that, Ohio loves to control lives. Hates disabled people. Loves to abuse disabled people. Etc. This is the most disgusting state, most cruelty. Etc.

  • Ohio absolutely, makes sure you will not have needs. O the ability to have the type of clothes you would choose to wear, etc.

  • Not everyone chooses, the clothes they wear. Especially if they live in a state like Ohio. Or if they have their basic needs. Etc.

  • FBI : if they're crossing their feet that's mean the question threatening them . Also Former FBI : 6:58

  • 6:35 ..” i look at the legs..” proceeds to strategically lay the doll in a semi suggestive way across the top of the book while subtly revealing a leg.

  • 😮

  • Why am I imagining myself in school just telling everybody off for lying and stuff when this clearly won’t happen

  • Dude thx now I know what to do at the principals office

  • Me:*Typing This Comment* FBI:"Open This Fuc-

  • Dumbest spy ever lol. I was born in eastern-europe and that is indeed correct 100% but it is a very stupid way to be found out, shows lack of cultural knowledge of the country you are trying to spy in. I guess could be a force of habit or something.

  • *watches 15 minute video* FBI Spy Hunter

  • The only body language I’ve really noticed is with myself and it’s when I’m nervous or in an uncomfortable situation I fiddle with my watch and if it’s not there I fiddled with my wrist

  • Sherlock 😂

  • Bruh I didn read his name in the video I was so focused on his face and when the book showed, I was like "Its the same with Joe Navarro's What every body is saying" and I look at again at the beginning of the video and saw ITS ACTUALLY JOE NAVARRO HIMSELF IN THE MF VIDEO 💀💀💀😂😂 my man Joe

  • *breathes FBI: T H I S M A N I S H I T L E R

  • This is staged.Girl playing poker had a brown shirt and then changed to black

  • Did anyone notice this guys feet??? They're moving around the whole time!! LIAR

  • As an Eastern European, I can tell you that we in fact do not always carry flowers around like that ,and that we’ve never cared to think about the way we hold it 🗿😂😂 him: that’s how they hold flowers in Eastern Europe The entirety of Europe : _bruh_

  • This guy’s body language is all over the map.

  • The way you're shuffling in the chair denotes bit of anxiety you're going under

  • I would hate to play poker with him.

  • why did the woman’s shirt change???

  • Does he have a book?

  • Spy: *holds flowers* Flowers: *im about to end this whole mans career*

  • Imagine having anxiety and this guy in a suit comes flaring questions at you. BOOM arrested

  • “You can have a poker face, but you can’t have a poker body”

  • Read his book. He’s the real deal GEEZ

  • Watching this so I can see who is lying to me in school :P

  • I involuntarily twitch as a side affect of medication. If you do not know this, is the twitching going to be some kind of deterrent to reading body language. What about a person who has cerebral palsy and does not have control of his movements? As a welfare eligibility worker, this information is helpful, in that it can trigger the EW to ask more questions in detail of the subject the client is telling you.

  • Wtf, i don't do any of these

  • Shoot I'm tempted to get his book

  • 11:25 Look at her shirt 11:32 Now look at her shirt ??????

  • Me, trying not to count my blinks after he said we blink 8 times per minute : 👁👄👁

  • He says: "Your blink rate is about 8 times a minute.." Then proceeded to blink 8 time in under 20 seconds.

  • I'm a spy... Or I have an anxiety disorder.. I do all this stuff all the time...

  • Finally, a video actually worth watching. I feel soooo validated right now. A coworker was trying to get me fired during a conversation with our manager. I had perfectly logical reasons for doing each thing she accused me of. Finally, exasperated, she said, "Well look at her! Her arms are closed (I was "self hugging" during the entire conversation). That says right there that she is closed [to taking direction]." What she didn't know was that right before she joined the conversation with our manager, I had remarked how cold it was and then covered my arms to keep warm. He and I were having a pleasant conversation and I was cold. She made herself look like a fool. Not only did I not get fired, but when she tried to go over the manager's head, he wrote a glowing report about me. Crazy chick ended up losing custody of her child years later. #karma.

  • I have social anxiety. I'm always nervous, Never comfortable.

  • He really *opened up* didn’t he

  • Im not a talker much but around new people after a few minutes i talk alot Tf is going on

  • You remind me of the American guy in Anna. He caught her coz of how she holds her bag

  • He must be god in poker

  • lmao i should be reviewing but okay,,

  • Who else got this in their recommendation randomly and thought (hmmm... Now i can lie better but do the same things after 2 minutes) P.S- the comment by "erotic tomato" is the best comment, if you haven't read it then go find it

  • He looks literally like a typical FBI agent in any movies 😂

  • Him: crossing arms is usually never done unless in public Me: *Unconsciously crosses arm*

  • Can you imagine if this dude watch movies and just analyzes the whole thing

  • FBI Open up!!!

  • me: *watches FBI videos* me: i will become a spy! my FBI agent: oh girl, i am so proud of you!
