I do spell the first of the word correctly, deni. Just add ability at the end and I’ve got it. The root of the word is deny. Maybe if I use the mnemonic of sound y and I sound the same and deny-ability. We’ll see if I can remember that.
Do you have a better idea? Please feel free to share.
Here is more great writing advice from Life, the Universe, and Everything. The theme of the presentation is about how horror and comedy both create a physical response.
Any misinformation is the fault of the note taker.
- Laughing is a social response to screaming.
- Movie: Oscar > Stallone comedy.
- We can relate to scary because we’ve all had creepy people near us.
- Humor and horror can range from low to highbrow. Anything done by the Farley brothers: dumb and dumber, 3 stooges. Focus more on physical or don’t have a moron a dead bird to a blind kid.
- We run toward sex and run away from blades, that is how humans have survived.
- Highbrow horror: physiological. Exorcist is an example. Most of the fear grows out of the relationship between characters.
- Slasher doesn’t survive because teens bang/sex and die.
- Low brow: torture porn. Slasher movies: how to kill someone.
- Differences between horror and fantasy:
- Lighting and longer lens.
- Comedy depends on lighting. And it’s far away and shots are taken at a longer leans.
- Horror brings us in close and usually dark.
- When someone is close you can only see the face. Don’t see body and hands that could cause harm.
- Intimate means you don’t know what the other is doing. We surrendering our knowledge of what the other is doing.
- In comedy, our character does not see what is coming but the audience sees what is coming.
- There is only one necessity of a horror book is that it has to scare me.
- Everyone is the hero of their own story.
- A person who used to tell dead baby jokes. It was funny until he had his wife lost a child.
- Lack of lighting is sensory deprivation.
- Scream: made fun of scary movies.
- In every great comedy humor movie is a moment of true horror we get to know that character. There must be something that the character needs to be is in threat of losing something important to them.
- Horror needs to have a moment of levity.
- We go to horror to be uplifted because we survive.
- We can’t exist in one without existing in the other.

Took notes on a YouTube presentation. Enjoy. The link at the bottom.
- Analyze verses speculate
- Manage your bias
- Recognize evasiveness
- Beware of aggression
- Difference between convince verses convey
- Know what non-verbal cues mean
- Before you make an interpretation of body language you need to see what their normal behavior is. Someone may naturally fold their arms.
- Need to identify the stimulus behind the questions. It is the question the interviewer asks. The movement needs to come when the question is asked. There are two parts to a response, timing, and clusters. The first behaver shows in the first 5 sec.
- Want to see more than one lying behavior during that answer.
- Ignore truthful behaver, because deceptive people can give truthful answers.
- People want to manipulate us to believe in them.
- People who fib will often go into excessive in-depth answers. What do you do here? Honest people give their job titles. A fiber will give details of job duties.
- See if the person gives you an answer when you ask the question. They may give a long answer but it is not the answer to the question you asked. It’s called failure to deny.
- An honest person will directly deny what they are accused of
- Exclusionary qualifiers, for the most part. Not really, fundamentally are the words. The answer begs for a follow-up question. The interviewer will do a follow-up question for clarity.
- Aggression: attack the interviewer. It weighs heavier as possible.
- Attacking a 3rd party i.e.: the store procedures are wrong.
- Quick to anger.
- Inappropriate display of concern. Murder asked did you kill his wife. He smiled, no I didn’t. Why did he smile?
- Convincing statements: if someone goes into their past records of deniability when you ask someone if they did something. I’m a good person and a good worker. When someone tries to convince you of something and they never answer.
- Notice the words. If someone says “I wouldn’t do such and such” is not the same as “I didn’t kill my kids”
- When you hear protesting statements (clusters of two or more convincing statements) they sound true. Ask her to prove it. If she gives convincing statements but never answers looks bad on her.
- Perception qualifies are things what “I swear to God”; the things people do and way to dress up their lives. Honestly, Franky.
- Non-verbal: Listen for a pause. Does the motivation to pause match the question? If you see body behavior that seems to be conflict behavior is suspicious.
- Anchor point: are things that anchor you to the world or ground. Feet on the ground folded arms. Sitting the chair, your bottom is the anchor point. Dangling foot on crossed legs > watch it.
- Grooming gestures: dress ups the lie fix hair straighten the tie.
- Hands to face. Play with nose or ears.
- The more people talk, the worse it is.
- You put in pauses between your questions and the answer because people feel uncomfortable with silence. You do it just south to feeling uncomfortable (3-5 sec) because people have a tendency to fill quiet space and will often fill the space with convincing statements or other lying traits.
- On phone interviews don’t let our mind drift. Pay attention to their answers, not to your next question.
- Check out book: Spy the lie

Do you have any additional ideas on how to catch a liar or how to read body language? If so, please feel free to share.
I keep wanting to add the r. We’ll see if this works. When you are punctual you avoid being Really late. So avoid the R in punctural.
Here is a second attempt, you ALways want to be PunctuAL. ALways.

At the toast master’s conference, A presenter talked about resolving conflicts. He does it professionally. I had his name but I spelled it so badly that I couldn’t tell what it is. These are the rest of my notes from last week.
Focus on something that is most important to yourself and will be important for yourself
- When you prepare your speech ask yourself, what do you want your audience to do differently or feel differently and make sure that message is in your opening.
- Texas joke: A man heard a whamp whampe whamp under his car. Got out and change the wrong change tire
- Toaster masters are there for you to practice your stories and practice our antidotes.
- How do we create open body close body? That’s the basic structure. I’m doing a speech on change tell the story you need to change the right thing.
- Do not formulate a response to talk to an angry person.
- Everything in between those stories is to grow the point of your key message.
- Audience participation and have them do things.
- Do not give out handouts as the audience will look at them instead of you.
- No power point> get our audience involved.
- You interact with your audience to connect.
- Intercept attention: do it by asking a question. Ask a question that stimulates a yes response.
- engagement: you engage your audience. Do it as quickly as possible. Stories engage.
- Establish credibility: Even the intro spiffed it up. 97 success rate. The intro can tell how the speech will help them. And see how the intro. Tell how the presentation will help the audience.
- Teach them something. Inform and engage.
- Keep a pen and paper to gather stories.
- Reactions for survive response is for success.
- Once you learn their feelings and thoughts > come up with a solution that will be a win for both sides.
