What people say to you goes way beyond their words.
So, how to Read Someone’s Body Language?
Body language provides an amazing amount of information on what other people are thinking if you know what to look for. And who hasn’t wanted to read people’s minds at some point?
I will tell you how to deeply understand the meaning of nonverbal communication.
Have you ever noticed that the expressions on a person’s face don’t always align with the words coming out of their mouth?
If you can learn to understand how things like: eye movements, hand gestures, and body positions relate to people’s emotions, you’ll be able to drastically improve your ability to communicate.
- Crossed arms and legs signal resistance to your ideas. Psychologically, crossed legs or arms signal that a person is mentally, emotionally, and physically blocked off from what’s in front of them. Remember! The context is always defining – so crossed arms mean also that a person is cold or is relaxing. And if that person has crossed legs, it means he/she doesn’t know how to answer to your question or don’t want to answer.
- Real smiles crinkle the eyes. When it comes to smiling, the mouth can lie but the eyes can’t. Genuine smiles reach the eyes, crinkling the skin to create crow’s feet around them. People often smile to hide what they’re really thinking and feeling, so the next time you want to know if someone’s smile is genuine, look for crinkles at the corners of their eyes. If they aren’t there, that smile is hiding something. Or, is possible that person may not visit the dentist too often and may not be too proud of his or her teeth.
- Posture tells the story. Have you ever seen a person walk into a room, and immediately, you have known that they were the one in charge? That effect is largely about body language, and often includes an erect posture, gestures made with the palms facing down, and open and expansive gestures in general. The brain is hardwired to equate power with the amount of space people take up. Standing up straight with your shoulders back is a power position; it appears to maximize the amount of space you fill.
Now, you know.
