Some of Richard’s research into deception explores the psychology of illusion, focusing on the techniques used by professional magicians. This work was described in his book Magic In Theory.
Another aspect of the work examines the behavioural signals that are associated with lying, and whether it is possible to train people to become better lie detectors. This work was described in Richard’s book, Quirkology, along with lots of other quirky research including how your surname has influenced your life and the science of seduction.
Richard created several YouTube clips to celebrate the publication of Quirkology, including the ‘Colour Changing Card Trick’…..
High quality versions of six of the videos from the Quirkology YouTube channel are now available on DVD. This DVD is used in training seminars and classrooms across the world.
