Active Engagement is the ability to engage in meaningful dialog by controlling the direction of conversation. This will enhance the ability to solicit information and observe behavior indicators from the use of questioning techniques. By observing signs of deception during engagement, an individual may have an increase emotional state of stress, fear and anxiety do to the fear of discovery or in other words... fear of being caught.
Active Engagement is a non-interrogative questioning technique that has a seamless approach during what appears to be regular conversation. This technique is non-evasive and has the basis of counter-social engineering with a nexus to security assessment.
