The human body continuously sends signals: a gesture, a glance, a smile, a tilt of the head… How can one learn to recognize them?

Body language conveys all our feelings well. And even if the interlocutor does not say what he thinks, an experienced observer recognizes his attitude to what was said by non-verbal signals. Such knowledge is useful for everyone, because it helps to better understand people and calculate different situations, better understanding what is really on the minds of others. After all, the tools for communication that express basic feelings are laid in us from birth, and they are understood all over the world. And some of them we get by unconsciously imitating the people around us.

● Another sign of trust is an open hand. If a person during a conversation makes a movement with his hand from top to bottom, while the palm is pointing down – this means: he caught the insincerity of the partner.

Editor’s advice. Handshakes are exchanged not only by men, but also by women. By doing it right, you will always win. First, before reaching out your hand, look the person in the eye for a few seconds. This is how you show your interest. Secondly, take the interlocutor’s hand confidently, with the whole palm, shake it firmly – this way you will demonstrate your disposition and respect. Touching the hand with only the tips of your fingers, you show distrust of the person.
