is of two types, verbal and non verbal. Body language is the non verbal
communication which just can't be fake. If you know to read body language you
can easily figure out what's going on someone's mind. Anyone can pretend while
speaking but the body language speaks only truth.
Basic Body language signals:
Eyes: Eyes communicate
more than any other part.
Liars will never look at your
eyes while talking or will make more eye contact than usual in an attempt to
make you believe they are telling you the truth.
While listening to you if
someone is looking away this means the person is thinking about something else.
Twinkling of eyes means Amused.
Wide open eye is the sign of
Eyebrows Down and Together

Eyebrows Raised in the Middle

of weight, or movement of the foot will most often mean that the person is
excited, nervous, scared, or intimidated.

- Feet Out, on Heels
symbolizes Disinterest, Bored
- Legs Crossed given an
impression that the person is not open to conversation.
- People with crossed arms
are closing themselves to social influence.
- If someone rests their arms behind their neck, they
are open to what is being discussed and interested in listening more.

If someone brushes their hair
back with their fingers, this may be preening.
Raised eyebrows means they
disagree with you.
If the person wears glasses,
and is constantly pushing them up onto their nose again, with a slight frown,
that may also indicate they disagree with what you are saying.
If someone is playing with
their hair, they are feeling self-conscious, flirting, or possibly
If someone is biting their lip,
they are anticipating something.
there is typically one person speaking at a time but many more can be showing
their responses via body language. Some researchers put the level of nonverbal
communication as high as 80 percent of all communication. So next time when you
are communicating with someone, try to read the gestures and also try to
improve your body language so that others don't interpret you wrong.
