Transcript: How to Interpret Body Language... My presentation will focus on unusual ways to tell if someones lying or attracted to another person, and also some odd body language gestures to avoid that one may not even realize they are doing. Lying Face May unconsciously place objects (book, coffee cup, etc.) between themselves and you (How). Body Palms of the hand are turned down or closed (not revealed to you) (Rodrigues). Attraction One leans towards the other while still keeping good posture ("Body") lifted shoulders reveal a softer, almost child-like side to a person (lets the other person know that you're open to them) (Vernier) Feet and knees that are always turned toward the direction of another person is a sign of attraction. (Vernier) Open palms say one is comfortable and relaxed. (Vernier) Why learn how to interpret body language on a deeper level?

Transcript: Body Language – Body Posture Controlled walking can add to the effectiveness of your message. If you stay glued to one spot, you might appear rigid, inexperienced or terrified. Your movement forces the audience to refocus its attention on you and creates interest. Walking Patterns Avoid the following: - Putting your hands in your pockets, which makes people trust you less. Research has found that we trust others more when we can see their hands. - Pushing your hair aside frequently with your hand or shaking your head to push aside your hair. - Taking the caps on and off your pen or marker. - Scratching your face, head, or any other part of your body. - Arms folded across your chest, which may make you slouch, and makes you appear closed, disconnected from the audience Using a Podium/Lectern If you’re using a lectern, it’s a good idea to hold the sides so your hands can be seen. Hold the sides of the lectern, but do not grasp them tightly as if you are scared. Feel free to gesture naturally, even from the podium. This will give a more relaxed feel to your presentation, as you will come across as more informal, open, and accessible to your audience. Our posture conveys a lot about our level of confidence. Good posture gives the impression of authority and confidence. Gestures - hands on hips, which makes you appear too matronly, like you are about to scold someone; - arms clasped behind the back military style, which makes you appear too aloof - arms down in front, folded below the waist, which makes you seem too ‘goody-goody” Avoid the following: From an open body position, your arms will be free to gesture as they would in normal conversation in order to support your words and emphasize certain points. - Drumming your fingers on the lectern or table. This just comes across as a distracting, annoying nervous gesture.
Transcript: First of all, What is Nonverbal Language? Understanding Nonverbal Communication Concious and intended Body Language Less commonly discussed because it seems unproblematic These are things you WANT people to pick up about you. The words people say outloud are sometimes different than what they *really* mean. Some people mask what they are feeling by lying through body language People unconciously do not believe what they say Others are completely silent, but their body language reveals everything Examples of Voluntary/intentional movements Hand gestures: waving hello, "The finger", blinking with one eye, etc. Tone of voice: The pitch of your voice and the way you communicate. Yelling, speaking softly or whispering, saying things in a sarcastic way, intonation Breathing: Slow or fast breathing, breathing heavily or slowly to relax SO if some hand gestures are a result from culture, does that mean we sometimes use false body language to mask something we are feeling? To better understand others, try to identify the cause of their intentional body movements Consider all the possible reasons for change You will learn much about the person and how they feel in the enviornment they are in. What are these peoples perceptions?
