This week's Training Minute: Ventilation

from NMLEA

As the heat builds up in the body due to increased stress, anxiety and the adrenaline spikes commonly associated with deception and stress, subjects will perform various behaviors intended to lower body temperature. Sweating is common among the guilty and innocent, but the need to ventilate physically is far more common to appear in deceptive and high-stress subjects.

Using clothing and other objects, ventilation behavior can appear in several forms:
  • Pulling or tugging a shirt collar to force air into the shirt and allow heat to escape. (most commonly seen in male subjects)
  • Pulling the front of a shirt to ventilate heat
  • Moving long hair away from the back of the neck in order to allow airflow
  • Adjustments wherein a subject lifts their bottom from a chair for an unusually long period.
Regardless of the type of ventilation behavior exhibited, all are intended to pacify the same need. All ventilation behavior is thus grouped into one single category without variable fluctuations in the upper right corner of the cell.
