What your body language says about you


According to the experts and psychologists, the non verbal communication can account for more than 75 percent of the impact of a message.  The other 20 percent impacts the sound of your voice nd how you say something... and basically only 5 percent  matter what you really say!


Here are some meanings of your body language  most experts agree on.



ARMS CROSSED ACROSS THE CHEST
= disinterest


ARMS UNFOLDED
= openess, positivity


CROSSED LEGS (unless in a skirt)
= lack of interest, being withdrawn



STANDING WITH A VERY WIDE STANCE
=power, dominance

STANDING TALL
= confidence, good health

TILTING OF THE HEAD
=boredom or confusion


AVERTING THE GAZE
= disbelief


EXCESSIVE BLINKING (or comlete absence of blinking)
= lying


ECHOING AND MIRRORING
= sexual interest




Do you pay attention to your body language or to the body language of others?

    1. Me too, I cross my legs when I sit, all the time, and it never means anything . . . I'm just comfie like that. All these body language bs is bs. You could make a mistake by believing somebody's misunderstood interpretation of things.

  4. I notice lots of people echoing my actions and vice versa, it just seems to come naturally to me and I giggle when I notice. Don't fancy any of them though, haha xx

  8. I cross my legs (Eurpean style) 90 percent of my sitting time (whenever there's enough clearance between my knee and the table). It doesn't mean anything, I just feel comfortable sitting that way.

    When I'm being "closed and stubborn" I'm not crossed, if sitting, I open and lean forward to get my point accross, if standing, I'm usually uncrossed. That tells me that, generally, a lot of signs could be misleading.

    P.S. When I echo somebody, that means I'm being sarcastic. Waaaay off.
