Let Us Start With Your Face.
Well you face says a lot about you, if you smile a lot when you are communicating with someone else that gives an impression that you are a happy, positive and kind person, it also make them think of you that you are approachable and unlikely to bite them if they try to get near. If you keep on tilting your head that could mean two things, either you are flirting with whoever in front of you or you really feel sorry for the person, two different messages that can be delivered by the same motion.
– Your Eyes.
Eye contact is very important, it gives the person in front of you an impression of a confidence about you, it will also show that you are giving your full attention to that person. However some people may take direct eye contact as aggressive and offending so try not to over do it so you don’t reflect the wrong impression.
– Your Upper Body.
When you are slouched over people think of you as if you are sad, unhappy, or have lake of self confidence, however sitting straight with your shoulders slightly pushed back, your head is aligned with your spine and your chin is slightly up will reflect an image of a person who is confident, strong and trust worthy.
– Your Arms And Hands.
When you cross your arms over your chest you are putting a huge stay away sign to whoever you are communicating with, you may want to use this signal for those you don’t want in your life or if you are unhappy with the conversation, bored or insecure, in any case this stay away message will be understood clear and loud.
However if you want people to feel that you are more open and relaxed with the talk, your hands should be hanging down beside you if you are standing, folded in your lap if you are sitting or even behind you.
– Your Lower Body.
Just like your upper body, signals from your lower body also have different meanings, for example crossing your legs tightly is same like crossing your arms, it gives those around you the impression that you are not interested in the conversation, shaking your legs will reflect an impression of fear and insecurity about yourself while directing your to as to any other direction that straight forward show that you are looking for an exit and would love to leave that place as soon as possible.
