If you want to know that what other people are thinking and how they are feeling during an interview (if you are the member of the recruitment team) then this is something you should go through. Well, I am talking about body language. Yes, one’s body language can tell you more about what one’s thinking. Who does not want to read people’s mind at some point in time?The research by the UCLA has shown that only 7 percent of the conversation is based on the actual words we say. As for rest the 38 percent comes from the tone of voice we use and remaining 55 percent comes from the body language.

If you know the that how to read somebody’s body language then you can get the real idea of the conversation I guess. As unspoken signals are more important in any conversation and can give you the actual idea of other person’s mindset. next time you talk to someone, playing with your kids or in a meeting, watch out for these signals to get the real idea of the situation.
1. Crossed legs and arms signal a refusal to your ideas: Crossed legs and arms are physical barriers that indicate that the other person is not open to ideas or is not open to what you are saying. No matter if they are smiling and showing their interest but their body language tells the real story. When a person sits crossing their legs and arms this means that they are not open to what you saying such people block themselves physically, mentally and emotionally from what’s in their front.
2. Real smile crumples the eyes: It is very common saying that when it comes to smiling, the mouth can lie but your eyes can’t. A genuine smile directly reaches the eyes, crumples the skin. Generally, people smile to hide their actual feelings and they smile to hide what they are thinking of. So The next time you want to know that if someone’s smile genuine or not then look for crumples if it is there then its is genuine otherwise they are surely hiding something from you.
3. Copying your body language is sometimes a good thing: Have you ever noticed that someone is copying your body language like if you are crossing your legs others are also doing the same. That’s actually a good sign, it is called Mirroring body language and this is something we do unintentionally only when we feel that bond with the other person. And it is also an indication that the conversation is going well and the other person is approachable too.
4. Stance tells the story: Your stance tells a lot about yourself. Your gestures made with hands, palms facing down etc. Standing straight with your shoulders back is a powerful posture to stand in. It appears that you are filling the maximum space. Drooping, on the other hand, is a very negative posture you can stand in. It appears that you take less space. Maintaining good stances is a manifestation of respect.
5. Eyes are the mirror of the body: We all must have heard that “you should look into eyes while you talk to someone and it’s tough to lie when you look into someone’s eyes. But this is something anybody will deliberately do if he wants to lie to someone to cover up the lie. The problem arises when someone holds the eye contact for a longer time, this can make anyone uncomfortable.
6. Raising your eyebrows signifies that you are uncomfortable: Mainly there are three emotions which make your eyebrow to go up and these are fear, worry and sorry. Try to raise your eyebrows when you are having a relaxing conversation with your friend, it’s hard to do so. Isn’t it?
7. Capturing jaw signals stress: A clenched jaw, furrowed brow, and tightened neck are all signs of stress. No matter what a person is saying. The conversations can about something they are anxious about or maybe their mind is elsewhere and they are not able to focus on the conversation instead they are thinking of something else in their minds. The mismatch between the conversation and their reaction tense the body language completely.
