We often underestimate body language, thinking that words matter more. It may be true, but nonverbal makes up about $$90$$ percent of our daily communication.

We use our body language constantly. We shake our head instead of “No”, frown to express anger or raise the eyebrows when surprised. The way we move or not move, our facial expressions can say more than we think. However, a lot of people don’t know the meaning of these signals.

Take the signs of lying, for instance. A lying person doesn’t look you in the eye, blushes, touches his nose or mouth frequently. Several signs together can tell almost for sure that the person isn’t honest with you. But separately these signs can mean something different. Blushing can be a signal that the person is embarrassed or ashamed. It depends on the context.

Folded arms are the signal that the person is uncomfortable and instinctively tries to defend himself. Pursed lips can show disapproval or disgust, hands on the hips can express willingness to action or aggression.

Gestures can reveal what we really think. That’s why politicians are taught to control their body language, especially in front of cameras.

We can use these patterns to communicate better. When talking to people, use open postures, smile, look them straight in the eyes. Let your body language be on your side.
