Can I read your mind? Yes! Anyone can learn how to read minds! Expert body language can be applied to learn how someone feels and thinks in everyday life. These are a few of basics that will get you started reading minds.
First things first! You can’t just walk into the world and expect to read people because you know a few signs! There are a couple of very important notes to apply to this art before you can expect to read minds accurately.
When and Where!
You need to know when and where to look for these signs first. Here is a simple example to show you what I mean.
Lets say if you are talking about Hawaii and you say “Hawaii is a great place to go surfing!”and the other person gives you a sign of disgust when you mention Hawaii, well this means they still might like surfing but not hawaii. First pay attention to when the body language becomes apparent then pay attention to what it is. This is one of the most important things to remember when reading people!
More then One Sign!
Too many times people assume someone is feeling upset, doesn’t like them or is lying to them. This is a bad habit people have gotten into that causes mistakes to be made when reading people. There are many signs for every emotion so look for more then one sign to back up how the person is feeling before you pass judgment!
Just to touch on this briefly as you will start to find yourself noticing how you are standing and feeling more as you learn about body language. Remember that just because you are in that body position doesn’t necessarily mean that is how you feel. Some signs can relate to more then just one emotion. (which is why you always look for more then one sign) For example, next time you are in a aggressive state of mind, take notice all your body language. Then next time you are showing these signs you will more likely be aggressive nature then just feeling superior.
This is simply going to be a run through of a few of the basic body language signs you may encounter.
Body Position – Open / Closed
These positions are often related to being defensive or relaxed. If you are in a closed position it means you have created a barrier between yourself and something else by having your arms or legs crossed, or moving an object in front of you like a salt shaker on a table.
If you are in an open position with your arms at your sides it is usually a sign of being relaxed and comfortable with what is around you.
Holding a Gaze
Preening (making herself look nice for you)
Leaning Towards You
Keeping Eye Contact
Not a lot of Movement
In Someone Else’s Personal Space
So can I read your mind? Yes! but these are only the basic signs for each of these categories. In order to become great at reading other people there is always more to learn. Fortunately it gets easier and easier as you learn and will eventually become second nature.
