Body Language Signs

Hi there and welcome.

In this section you can find all than you need to know about body language signs and their meanings.

To be more specific, this section of the site is about a more "permanent" and static signals in the behavior of men. It's about stances, positions and attitudes rather than one time gestures or quick face expressions.

In contrast - in the gestures section you will find mostly one timers or quick actions with specific meanings.

Why the separation? Simply because I believe it's easier to learn this way. Static body language signs are easy to observe and they change moderately, only when there's a change in the general mood or trail of thought of the person you observe. Gestures on the other hand are used as specific tools to make a certain point or as  accidental nonverbal "leaks".

So what these body language signs can tell us?

A lot actually:

  • How comfortable or stressed a person currently, does he feel confident or insecure?

  • Where do we want to go, or whom we want to be with

  • Relations and power struggles between superiors and their subordinates

  • How sociable and approachable someone is.

  • How "in-tune" someone is with us and what is his\her sort of interest.

In short - you can get lots of good indicators about the state of mind simply by observing his posture, lay of head and the position of his limbs.

Alright, I won't chew your ear off with further introductions, let's jump straight to the series:
