Nonverbal Profiling

Training: Understanding Unconscious Nonverbal Communication

Learn to observe what is not said and what it reveals about personality, interaction needs, interests, and motives.

Did you know that as humans, we only began consciously using non-verbal communication about 100,000 years ago? Prior to that, there was only unconscious non-verbal communication. It was only 70,000 years ago that verbal language was added.

Most people focus primarily on the verbal part of communication, and that's logical. We have evolved to quickly convey information about our interaction needs, the content of the message, and our feelings and emotions. However, this emphasis on the verbal aspect means we miss a crucial part—what is not said.

This training specifically addresses this aspect. Participants gain knowledge about persistent myths and current scientific insights into non-verbal behavior. Various methods are taught, and participants are trained in scientifically grounded INSA methods. This enables them to think in scenarios about possible meanings behind certain movements, providing more insight into personality, interaction needs, and potential interests and motives of individuals. Yes... even when the truth is not spoken.

Program Overview

This training consists of three classroom days at one of our locations. Prior to the training, a one-on-one online intake interview is conducted to capture your non-verbal profile and discuss the training objectives.

Participants learn to recognize non-verbal signals and interpret the possible scenarios behind their meaning. This program goes beyond unilateral conclusions, teaching participants to think about the reasons behind movements and the questions needed to understand and interpret behavior.

Trainers and participants also analyze and discuss the analysis part of the intake interview, allowing them to explore different perceptions of behavior and the non-verbal impact of participants. This not only teaches individuals to read others better but also enhances their own non-verbal impact.

This training is suitable for anyone looking to increase their own non-verbal impact, better understand others, or communicate more confidently and effectively. Additionally, this training can be the starting point for the Non-Verbal Profiler and Investigative Interviewer training, based on our three-pillar methodology, set to launch in 2025.

General Learning Objectives

  • Gain insight into unconscious non-verbal communication, its psychological meaning, and its influence in interactions.
  • Become familiar with the INSA method: a model of behavior types linked to objectively observable non-verbal communication. Learn what these behavior types reveal about interaction needs and behavior under stress and comfort.
  • Learn the difference between lie detection and stress detection and apply it.
  • Understand the dynamics between people in a team or conflict situation.
  • Use conversation skills and interventions confidently by aligning with the unconscious perceptual world of the conversation partner(s).
  • Acquire knowledge about other views on body language and how to use or not use them to gather more information about people.
  • Strengthen one's own insight and overview in interactions with others.
  • Understand how you come across to others and how to adjust accordingly.
