Is Tom Bray a liar?
Here are some signals of deception which I observed during his press conference in response to the crucial questions he was asked.
1. Smiling when asked if he’s a cheater Hiis reponse is ” I don’t think so” Someone who would be asked if they were a cheater would not usually be smiling if they were not a cheater as they would be angry about the accusation and reflect their anger in their facial expression.
2. Shoulder Shrugs
3. Gestures using back of his hand instead of palm of hand
4. Rocks back and forth
5. He often swallows hard a licks his lips and shows “cotton mouth”
6. Scratches his head
7. Repeats words and phrases and often stammers
8.Blinks eyes rapidly,
9. Shakes head no when he should be nodding it yes, especially seen when he is talking about fair play.
10. Dies off at the end of sentences where he can barely be heard,
11. Breathing changes as he suddenly goes to upper chest breathing,
12. Says “you know” often
13. Tension in midface (nasal area) when saying he doesnt know what happened
14. Lots of duping delight (inapproriate smiling) when talking about balls being touched and in other answers
In my view he showed multiple signals of tension and deception during the press conference which disturbed me. if someone was not showing these signals they would have spoken with more gravitas and would have shown different facial and body language and speech and voice characteristics.
