Strange title right?
Well it’s not a title; it’s what you would proudly say after learning how to read body language. Do you know that each emotional state that we experience has an associated gesture that accompanies it?
Whether this state was confidence, anxiety, fear, boredom, interest or even lying, it will be reflected into your body language and then read by anyone who understands body language in depth.
Body language is not just eye contact and posture as many people claim. Actually, body language involves any gesture that you make. This gesture could be anything from moving your hand or leg, to touching your nose or face. All the gestures that you make have a meaning in body language, and scientists have already identified a large number of emotions that can be detected just by watching a person’s body language.
“But why learn body language?” You may ask.
Contrary to common belief, body language is one hundred percent accurate - given that you understand its common pitfalls. Body language is approved world wide and is practiced by politicians, sales people, secret agents and even presidents.

Try to avoid taking this position as much as you can. After all, even if you feel shy or uncomfortable, your emotions are private and no should be allowed to know them without your consent.
