Here are some inputs on body language that would be of great help in our day-to-day life, personally and professionally. What you say is important, but, What you do is very very important. It has been researched that your body does not lie. Most commonly used body gestures and their meaning. I believe they would be of immense help :- Arms crossed over chest - Defensiveness or anxiety Swinging arm - Want to walk away from a situation Eye blinking - Fast blinking signals stress Downward gaze - Feeling defeated Taking notes - Shows interest or involvement Hand over mouth - Can mean boredom Arms behind head and leaning back - Looking for power or control Unbuttoning coat - Openness Buttoning coat - Feels trapped and wants to leave Standing with hands behind back - Confidence Clearing throat - Nervousness Rubbing back of neck - Defensiveness Hands flat on table - Ready to agree Stroking chin - Evaluating or thinking Foot tapping - Impatience Rubbing the eye - Doubt or disbelief Rubbing hands - Anticipation Tilted head - Interest Pulling / tugging ear - Indecision So next time you are communicating, be aware of your's and the other person's body language and understand what it means.
