Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2227:
Sincerity and Insincerity regarding
Suicide Death of Jacintha Saldanha

Mel Greig and Michael Christian, the Radio Personalities from an Australian radio station, gave Television interviews on Monday regarding the suicide of Jacintha Saldanha. Ms. Saldanha is the 46-year-old nurse who had put the phone call through to other nursing staff at when the two made a prank inquiring as to the health of the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate Middleton had been admitted to King Edward VII Hospital for Hyperemesis gravidarum. While full details regarding the full cause of the suicide are yet to be made public, if ever they are elicited, these interviews are from a body language view point, very revealing.

In both of these videos, Ms. Mel Greig displayed a high sincerity quotient, while her male colleague, Michael Christian displayed multiple nonverbal examples of a distinct lack of sincerity, and moreover gave multiple body language tells of contempt. You should never want Michael Christian on your jury.
