"Daniel Ribacoff, author of “I Spy: How to Be Your Own Private Investigator,” says that anyone can use simple techniques to detect if a boss is lying.
Ribacoff, the founder and CEO of International Investigative Group Ltd., says that you can even spot lies in emails or texts using a law enforcement technique known as the Linguistic Statement Analysis Technique (LSAT).
His first suggestion: Look for a lack of “commitment pronouns.”
For example, let’s say you send the boss an email asking about the status of a possible promotion.
If the boss says, “I” will look into it by tomorrow, then that shows a commitment to you because he or she is committing to the request personally and providing a time deadline.
“If he says something like, ‘Oh, we’ll look into it and advise you,’ then that shows a lack of commitment on his part. He’s also being vague about what’s going to happen,” Ribacoff says. “When there’s a lack of commitment, it’s a sign of deception.”
