Your body language can tell something other than what you say

Have you had such a conversation before, where body language says something different from what you are saying? Have you ever had one of those fake smiles that come in almost the speed of light? Has anyone tried to convince you of one thing, although both eyes and nervousness tells you otherwise?

Body language refers to nonverbal communication such as facial expressions, body movements, posture and movement of hands, arms and fingers. It has a significance and impact of what is being said. It tells the respondent what you are really saying.

Words and tone of your voice should be in harmony with your body language. These three things must correspond to a meaningful non-verbal speech.

When these three elements of face-to-face communication will support each other's body language convey most of the message.

Any suggestions on how body language can be improved

  • Keep your head up, maintain good eye contact, but do not stare.
  • Keep a slow pace, both in speaking and in your movements.
  • Relax and focus on your movements.
  • Sit or stand up straight.
  • Do not cross your arms or legs, relax your shoulders.
  • Do not stand too close or too far away.
  • Sincere smile and laugh.
  • Have a positive, open and relaxed attitude.


  • Constantly checking what time it is or check fingernails, is a strong sign of boredom.
  • Pick the clothes or the down and see people give signals that you do not approve of their ideas and / or feel uneasy to say your honest opinion.
  • To put her hand stroking chin while looking at someone, you give some signals that you pre-judge their decisions.
  • Squinting eye can provide signals to someone you do not like them or their ideas.
  • Fake smile is another sign of deception. A genuine smile wrinkles the corners of the eyes and change the facial expression.
  • Leaning away from someone you love is a sign that you are bored or distracted. People usually leans towards people they like, and leaning away from those you dislike.
  • Oh do not look directly at the person you are talking to, indicating some degree of discomfort or lack of interest.
  • Crossing the arms is a sign of defensive resistance or self-absorption.
  • To show a slight attitude and negative messages.

Confidence and attitude
Place your feet a comfortable distance from each other, keep your shoulders pulled back slightly and keep your head up, greet the people with direct eye contact and a firm handshake.

  • To scratch the back of the head or neck indicates doubt and uncertainty.Relax posture with shoulders indicates low self-esteem. Always pull your shoulders back. Not only will you look more confident out, you will also feel safer.
  • Shaking or tapping the feet or fingers indicates stress, impatience or boredom.Fiddling on small objects is another sign of anxiety or lack of interest. Keep your hands comfortable rest for when you are in the presence of others.
  • Anyway, that reading non-verbal cues are difficult because body language can have multiple meanings. For example, the crossing of the arms or legs can mean that a person is cold or is relaxed. Moreover, it is important to remember that the body language does not have the same meaning in all cultures.

So these observations should be used only as a guide for changing your personal development. When you need to learn to communicate better on a non-verbal level, one must first familiarize themselves with what is customary and acceptable in society, so that you know what you need to adjust and how much :)
