The results of the testing support previous findings that training in nonverbal behavior can raise scores in deception detection. In the pretest individuals were scoring at or around chance, but after training the score was raised to 60.7%. (Porter, Joudis, Brinke, Klein, & Wilson, 2010). The scores for identification of the facial expression happiness produced similar results; subjects originally scored at or below chance before training, and afterwards the subjects identified happiness with 63.1% accuracy. (Porter et al., 2010).
