Ekman SETT 3.0

SETT 3.0Ekman Subtle Expression Training Tool 3.0 (eSETT 3.0) is the premier training program for learning to recognize subtle expressions, and includes audio tips from Dr. Ekman. Subtle expressions are the very tiny, mini expressions that often appear in just one region of your face, such as the brows, eyelids, cheeks, nose, or lips.

They can occur when a person is trying to conceal a strong emotion - subtle expression can leak, exposing the true emotion in a tiny change in expression. These small movements may also occur when an emotion is just beginning, often before the person is aware of their emotional state.

Ekman METT Profile

METT ProfileEkman Micro Expression Training Tool Profile (eMETT Profile) teaches you how to recognize micro expressions in profile view. This is a more advanced skill; thus eMETT Profile should be used AFTER training with eMETT 3.0. This profile (side-view) training is appropriate for people wishing to build on their frontal-view micro expression knowledge, and is appropriate for anybody who works in groups. Whenever two or more people are present in conferences, we often see only the profile view of some individuals. In addition, those working in surveillance can greatly benefit from this training.

  • We have tested our tools on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X. You must have the latest Adobe Flash Player for desktop browsers.
  • Our tools run very well on Google Chrome (which is freely available) and on Mozilla Firefox (though a few errors have been reported). Please avoid using Internet Explorer at this time.
  • You can access some of our tools (eMETT 3.0 and eSETT 3.0) via a tablet or smart phone running iOS and Android.
  • We recommend using our tools on a display larger than 7 inches. Otherwise, the facial images will be too small to be useful for learning micro or mini expressions.
