While it will help to indicate comfort level, to really understand why you need to look deeper.
The same gesture can indicate a number of different things depending on context.
In this post, we're going to take a look at three common situations in which non-verbal cues are especially important—detecting lies, going on a date, and interviewing for a job—then explain how to interpret body language more accurately so that you can read between the lines when a person's words aren't necessarily conveying the way that they honestly feel. When having a conversation with a stranger, chances are we'll lie in the first ten minutes.
Sometimes we'll lie more than once in that same period of time.
Once you do this, it's a process of using context and other cues—which we'll get into later—to figure out the specifics.
There are plenty of ways a person may indicate their comfort level, but here are a few of the most common. For example, crossed arms falls under the category of negative body language and can suggest that a person is physically cold, closed off, or frustrated.
It can even indicate that they've simply had too much to eat.It's necessary to pay attention to multiple behavioral cues as a single one can be misleading.These may not always be big lies, but we still do it.We all willingly partake in deception from time to time because it helps us avoid conflict, but often we're better off knowing the truth.While words can be deceptive, the human body is a terrible liar.This is where reading body language and using your own effectively, can be extremely useful when communicating with others. When you're reading body language, your primary goal is to determine whether or not a person is comfortable in their current situation.
