Your body language says more about you than you think

According to Albert Mehrabian, the total impact of a message is based only 7% on the words used. More importantly are facial expressions and other forms of body language, responsible for 55% of the total impact, and tone of voice, responsible for 38%. Read below to know more about body language.

Here's 8 tricks to reading people's body language on a daily basis:

1.  Crossing arms and legs = resistance to your ideas

2.  Wrinkling eyes = smiles for real

3.  Copying your moves = feels a bond, agrees with you

4.  Standing straight, shoulders back = power position that supposes he/she is the person in charge

5.  Unblinking and still eyes = suggests the person is lying to you

6.  Raising eyebrows = emotions of surprise, worry or fear

7.  Nodding excessively = anxious about your approval

8.  Clenching jaws = signals stress or discomfort

The bottom line is, if you can't seem to read a colleague, a sibling, a friend, their body language says a lot more about what they think of you.
