October 26, 2015
Wouldn’t you love to be able to know when someone is telling you the truth? How helpful would it be to know the signs to look for to know when someone it lying to you? Whether in your personal life, or in business, knowing the clues to these secrets can undoubtedly make a difference in how you interact with someone. This week we speak with a mentalist who uses his natural gifts to teach others, including the police, how to tell truth from lies.
Scott Xavier has an associates degree in psychology from Arizona State University. After graduation, he became interested in crime forensics while working as a technician in a private lab matching up markings on bullets in the firearms tool mark section. He also helped to sort drums of recovered ammunition and evaluated bleaches and chemicals to clean recovered bullets. He worked to create training aids from Association of Firearm and Tool Mark examiners journals.
Scott then studied with the Illinois State police polygraph examiner to better understand how lies affect the body and developed the ability to pass a lie detector test.
Following this work in crime forensics, Scott began to pursue his interest in magic, teaching people how to read body linguistics and lie detection. He has written many books on magic, including “Tricky Business: Secrets of a Corporate Jedi” which appears in the library of Congress. He won second place among 500 magicians at the World Magic Seminar, has appeared on America’s Got Talent, and consults with well-known magicians to perfect their technique.
Scott now also works for corporations as a keynote speaker and entertainer at sales meetings and trade shows, sharing some of the teachings in his books to be used in a corporate setting.
