We get over 55% of information through nonverbal communication, like facial expressions, gestures, and other body movements. Pay attention to the signals that other people send without even realizing it. You’ve probably wondered how convenient life would be if you could read other people's minds. Some people use their intuition for this, but if you’re not so perceptive, there’s only one choice left: learning to read people's body language.

SUMMARY - If a person is talking to you and closing their eyes, you should know that they’re trying to hide from the outside world. - A few fingers, a palm, or even a fist near the mouth helps us hold back the words we don't want to let out. - If you see someone chewing on the earpieces of their glasses, try having a heart-to-heart with them and cheering them up. They’re definitely subconsciously worried about something. - Crossed arms are a clear sign that a person is not feeling it today. - When a woman wants a man to notice her, she tries to present herself in the best way possible. She straightens her back to emphasize her breasts, and she may also cross her legs. - When people like someone and want to get to know them, they usually lean forward. - If someone sits back in their chair, they’re showing that they’re tired of the conversation and don't want to keep it going. - If a person doesn't swing back and forth but bounces up and down on their toes, it might be a sign that they’re feeling confident. - Rubbing the hands together generally means that a person has a positive feeling about something, and they’re hopeful. - While you’re shaking hands with someone, if that person takes your wrist with their free hand, they’re showing that they’re trustworthy, friendly, and honest.
