These range from simple comprehension to empathy, and include the ability to infer the preferred reading of nonliteral messages and to detect deception. The American psychologist Judith A. Hall found that, in relation to decoding nonverbal cues, women tend to be more accurate and faster than men, particularly in relation to facial cues.
