It can be useful in
it sounds like a cliché, but a picture is worth
a thousand words. However, you must be
able to read and interpret a picture before you
can draw any meaningful conclusions and act upon
them. Remember that everyone is
"communicating" even without a single
word being uttered. So if we are smart to
read one's body language, we can get a good
understanding of what is going on in that
person's mind. Or in other words, that
information is powerful.
being able to read and interpret body language
comes in handy in all aspects of life, it is
particularly useful in
relationships. When you
meet someone for the
first time or when you discussing a serious matter
or you suspect that your
partner is cheating or
hiding something from you, sometimes the body
language can give away the secret. Or at
least you can get a good idea that the other
person is not telling the truth.
On a more positive note, when
you can read the other person's body language, you
can read if she or he is giving out positive
signals. A woman who is wishing in her heart
that you would buy her a drink or ask to dance
with her may not say so but if you are good at
reading her body language, you will notice that
this is exactly what she may be saying with her
demeanor. (Related article: How

there are some signs that are pretty obvious and almost
everyone seems to talk about them, I do not believe that
you need to memorize them. Plus, the gestures vary
by location. What people do in New England makes no sense in
Louisiana. What I am going to give here are broad
concepts that you should try to understand and then when
you try to read a person's body language, focus on his
or her gestures and put them in a broader context.
You will soon realize that you have a fair and accurate
understanding of what he or she is really thinking:
Posture: The #1
representation of one's mind. How is the person
holding himself/herself? Does he/she come across
interested? Are the arms open in a welcoming
manner or closed with the message "Leave me
Eyes: As the say,
"Eyes are the window into the mind".
Look for signs of nervousness, interest,
desire, aloofness, boredom, etc.
contact for just 4 seconds and you will see what is
Mouth: First of all,
what is the emotion here? You know we all force
ourselves to smile or laugh once in a while but we
also know very well what is a genuine
smile/laugh. And remember this, when we smile
genuinely, there is that part of the brain that is
genuinely in great spirits, or in other words, we are
ready to connect with other people around us.
