Main Objective of an Investigator

Private_Investigator1Parents are investigators with their children. Peers are investigators with each other. Employers are investigators with employees. Recruiters are investigators with applicants. Consumers are investigators with salespeople, just as salespeople are investigators with consumers. Just because the subject of the investigation is not criminal in nature does not make it any less important and any less of an investigation.

The main objective of an investigator is to obtain information and evidence in search of the truth, and witnesses and victims are a major source of this information. Memory is however not perfect; memory can be extremely subjective with many areas where inaccurate information can appear genuine to the interviewee. This must be kept in mind when there is suspicion that a subject’s story is not accurate. They may or may not be lying.

About Stu Dunn

Becoming proficient with non verbal communication and teaching what I’ve learnt over the years has become an absolute passion of mine; starting with beginning the SDL Behavioural Science Facebook Page, then set up my first online course in 2011, and my first book on the subject True Lies, A Guide to Reading Faces, Interpreting Body Language & Detecting Deception in the Real World was published in 2013. During this time I’ve helped thousands of people around the world become proficient in reading body language, micro expressions and detecting deception – and I’d love to help you too.
