Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in science. 

Tonight’s show draws on scientific research to reveal some surprising ways we use tiny bits of behavior and mannerisms to correctly predict others' intentions and actions.

It will also lay out areas that the research finds we are not so good in making predictions, like in discerning whether others are lying. You'll learn the few signs that actually do suggest that somebody is lying as well as finding out other ways we are prone to err in our assessments of people's skills and intentions. 

My guest tonight, psychologist Dr. Matthew Hertenstein has taken a research-driven look at all of this in “The Tell: The Little Clues That Reveal Big Truths About Who We Are.”

Join us to become a more sophisticated reader of others’ nonverbal skills -- and maybe even learn how to rejigger your own to send a more desirable message the next time you have a date or a job interview. 

Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.
