An Unlikely Story

Tuesday, November 14 at 7pm for a discussion and signing of Diary of a Human Lie Detector
Julie and Jeff Kinney (author of Diary of a Wimpy Kid) have created a beautiful community gathering place where you can meet amazing authors and enjoy a new book, good food, and a beer (or glass of wine).

Annie's Books

In Diary of a Human Lie Detector, Annie Särnblad uses passionate, autobiographical pieces about love, lust, and lies to teach the fleeting, momentary facial expressions of emotion that are invisible to most people. The Facial Expressions Glossary is the perfect addition to Annie’s speaking and workshops, allowing readers to practice and test themselves as they learn with labeled photographs and descriptions of over 30 universal expressions.

What are microexpressions?

Microexpressions are the subconscious, “leakage” of emotion that make the “unspoken” feelings visible. They are universal to our species and not dependent on culture. 

In a negotiation, reading microexpressions allows us to gain insight into the other person’s position that is invisible to most people. This ability to identify the subtle changes in mood of the person we are talking to allows us to observe how a conversation is going – as it is happening – so that we can instantly adjust our own behavior and improve the outcome of the negotiation.

Reading and responding well to another person’s needs and wants greatly influences their desire to close a deal on both a conscious and subconscious level.

In a world teeming with talents, Annie stands out as a paragon of brilliance and versatility… For those fortunate enough to collaborate with her, Annie is not just an advisor but a catalyst for transformation.

This is really powerful. This gives you information and intel to understand if you are safe in relationships or if you’re in a good position at your work, if you are surrounded by good friends who are well intended. Teaching your kids these things, these tools are extremely powerful. So I’m really grateful that you’re creating this and finally revealing this to the world… It’s going to help a lot of people, so thank you for this work. I’m very grateful for you.

I have invited Annie to speak and witnessed Annie speaking at multiple events and in different categories and businesses in my life. She always wows the audience and I’m regularly asked by clients to be introduced to her for their own follow up. She is fantastic.

We had Annie Särnblad booked as a guest on A Little Late with Lilly Singh, on NBC. She is bright and highly intelligent. Her wit not only makes her a great interview subject, but it gives her a keen understanding of what a show needs from her during a record. Easy to collaborate with, and great with direction. Then, of course, and most importantly, there is her truly magical power to read faces, facial expressions, and human intention, paired with the charisma and patience to explain it, and connect it, to the host and audience. Annie, and her otherworldly skill, will come across as fascinating in any setting.
