Hey guys, I’m finally here with the last part of reading body language. On the last two blogs about body language I shared leg and torso gestures. If you haven’t read those check those out here and here. Today I’ll talk about hand and face gestures. So let’s start.
Gravity Related Movement
Akimbo and Hooding
If Someone is shaking hands with you and keeps his hand a little sloppy. So that his hand remains slightly up by doing this he is showing dominance. Maybe he thinks he is better and stronger than you.
If a person shakes hand little sloppy towards downwards then by doing this he is showing that he is submissive and is feeling weaker then the opposite person
Straight handshake shows equality and respect.
Arm cues that Isolate
Whenever a person folds him both hands backward by this they communicate their highest status.
Talking while touching both hand’s fingers shows the opposite person believes it and is very confident about it.
Nonverbal of face
Pupillary Constricting and Squinting
When we feel surprised and when we meet someone suddenly then we suddenly enlarge our eyes and we smile if we like that person. When we don’t like that person but if we don’t like that person or situation then we make our eyes small after enlarging it. We squint our eyes, squinting eyes gives a negative feeling signal.
When we want to avoid any situation or person we star blocking our eyes by shifting our eyes or maybe by looking down.
When a person suddenly starts blinking their eyes too fast. This thing shows that maybe a person is struggling to say something or struggling to accept something.
While talking moving your head sidewards or rolling your eyes upwards shows that maybe you are not able to believe or trust something.
Sudden flare or nose blooming shows that maybe the opposite person is about to start an argument or going to run or going to fight or about to lift heavy weight etc.
Real and Fake Smiles
In a real smile your face goes upwards from your cheeks which creates wrinkles to hear your eyes but in fake smile all these things will not happen.
Moving lips to one side or tightening the lips which bring Wrinkles on lips this shows maybe the person is not agreeing on the particular thing.
Disappearing, Compression down lips
Taking lips inside, slight visibility of lips or pressing lips, or keeping lips upside down this shows sadness or stress.
Licking lips with tounges show stress or desire and pressing tongue with teeth, show maybe the person has done anything wrong.
Gravity Defying Behaviour
Keeping head up or chin up shows high confidence and the opposite of it shows low confidence.
So this is it for today, I shared these form the book called “What Every Body is Saying ” by Joe Navarro. catch you guys up on the next one. Till then stay safe, Peace.
