Body language is the reflection of a person’s thinking and emotional response by his gestures and movements. The key to reading body language is being able to understand the emotions revealed by the body while listening to what they are saying, noting the circumstances under which they are saying it. We focus on spoken words while we now know that most of the messages in any face-to-face conversation are revealed through body signals.
Studies show that a person who relies on visual observation in a face to face situation is more likely to make accurate judgements about that person than someone who relies only on ‘gut feelings’ or words. The difference is body language and, while women can do it subconsciously, anyone can teach themselves consciously how to read the signals using the method in synergology.
