Watch Your (Body) Language


Body language speaks volumes – yours as well as who you are speaking with. Here are some Negative and Positive signs:



Limited or no eye contact

Brow tension

Crossed arms

Whole body positioned away from the person you’re speaking with

Tight jawline

Hunched shoulders

Rigid body posture

Tapping fingers




Body position upright, facing the other person, leaning slightly forward means “I’m listening.” l Smiling eyes mean “I’m comfortable with you.”

Eye contact means “I’m interested. I like you.”

Relaxed jaw and brow means “I’m calm and at ease.”

Pleasant voice tone means “I’m relaxed.”

Fingers interlocked behind head, elbows out means “I’m open to ideas.”

Mirroring behavior means “I want to be friendly.”

Sitting still means “I’m more interested in what you are saying than anything else.
