blue sense

FORENSICS, PSYCHOLOGY

A term of art referring to a police (whose uniforms are usually blue, from whence the term) officer’s alleged intuition about impending danger, about whether a suspect is guilty, about whether someone’s lying, about hunches regarding cases or people. It is viewed as the je ne sais quoi in a policeman’s decision-making process that goes beyond what he can see, hear and smell.

Note: Studies have not validated the “blue sense,” but there is good evidence that some people, including some police, reliably infer others’ emotions, intentions, and thoughts by their demeanour and facial expressions
