Observing people, as I stand at the counter facing the customers who are seated, and being served food, I look around and see that one customer in particular, is carefully watching a table with 3 women who are chitchatting and because these 3 women are government representatives [Regional Commissioners] and this single person is a member of CCM party , he is trying to hear them out without being too inquisitive, [well politically there is a lot going on between government representatives and party members] but at the same time drawing attention as he looks at these women and thinks… The women at the same time are looking around talking shop [read politics] and they are about their own business.
What amazes me is how we perceive people and how we read them, and how a single frown or a smile or even a gaze that may be directed in such a manner says something differently that we recognize it as a hesitant thought. Be it, that we know all or are disappointed, or happy, its all in a thought that's played out loud and very openly with out one actually knowing. Its similar to saying the truth and trying to be honest when one is actually lying…!
Lie to me is a TV series, acted by actor Tim Roth, in the show, Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) and his colleagues in The Lightman Group accept assignments from third parties (commonly local and federal law enforcement), and assist in investigations, reaching the truth through applied psychology: interpreting microexpressions, through the Facial Action Coding System, and body language.[4] Based on the real-life scientific discoveries of Paul Ekman, the series follows Lightman [Tim Roth]  and his team of deception experts as they assist law enforcement and government agencies to expose the truth behind the lies.
[Well not only government, but actually even regular people who have spouses that are being lied]. Its a wonderful theory which is being practiced, and it shows real people how to read different signs when people lie.
