Sometimes with little or no provocation, consequence, purpose or thought, humans lie. To protect themselves, their reputation, to manipulate/gain advantage, to avoid punishment, for self-preservation. to appear superior… On the other hand, if you are a recipient of a lie, the consequences can be devastating, life altering, life threatening.
Think about the last time someone you cared about, lied to you, betrayed you; attempted to manipulate you using a deliberate falsehood. You wanted to believe but your lack faith in your own perceptions put you into a state of conflict. You did not know who or what to believe.
When did we begin to not trust our own perceptions about a person’s honesty? Would the world be a better place if deception was impossible? What kind of world would it be if everyone were required to tell the Truth?
What is there was a computer program that could help you discern the Truth? Would you believe a computer analysis? FACT: You can lie with your words, but the sounds of your words will give you away.
People have an intrinsic sense of unease when people are being deceitful because the pitch and jitter of the voice gives away the attempted duplicity. A computer can pick-up the nuance of the voice frequencies that can be used to ascertain genuine motives.
Have you called an organization only to be told that your voice is being recorded for quality assurance purposes? Chances are you are being screened to determine the emotions behind your motives for calling.
nanoVoice is a computer software that I created in the 80’s when I was a student in the College of Communication at Ohio University. I was designed to help determine if people were truthful. The software evaluates the octaves and frequencies of a person’s voice. Years of trial and errors have concluded that the voice contains valuable information beyond the spoken words.
Like a song, the voice contains frequencies that can be quantified. The nanoVoice software evaluates 6 octaves and 12 musical notes gleaned from each person’s vocal frequencies. Numeric values should all be connected. Columns should be balanced in color and size.
The energy in your voice creates a matrix which can show your motivation and emotional coherence. The vocal graph above shows a lack of foundational information and is speaking on a naïve, fantasized level. He is likely making up the story and leaving out a lot of pertinent information.
Only you give credibility to the words of others. If you don’t think their words contain any truth, you won’t be influenced.
If you are sitting here in your absolute best red dress and I say, “That is the ugliest yellow dress I have ever seen” you would likely laugh at me, or at least argue that I might be color blind. But if I said, “your dress doesn’t really look good on you”, you may doubt your choice of clothing for the occasion. Only you accepted the truth or untruth about the comment.
Sometimes vocal octaves can be split. The person can actually feel two distinct ways about a topic. In the graph below the person has been accused of sexually assaulting a young boy in a locker room. On one level he feels such behavior is appropriate (instinctual level) but there is a large gap between instinctual and fantasy layers indicating he has not accepted his own behavior on a personal level.
He may believe the behavior is normal. It may have happened to him. He was found guilty.
