Transcript of BODY LANGUAGE

BODY LANGUAGE
refers to a cluster of signals and postures representative of the internal emotions and mental services
Sharma (2005) enumerates the following helpful bodily movements and their meaning that you can use to improve your speech delivery in public.
Sitting Posture
While seated and waiting for your turn to speak, do not lean on a chair.
Body Language
Alert/Attentive
- This posture is automatically adopted when we are looking or listening with elevated interest or surprise.
May I go?
- After discovering no reason to seat anymore, we put hands on knees or thighs to prepare ourselves to stand and walk away.
Can’t seat longer - Under disinterest or impatience, we can barely seat and unconsciously prepare ourselves to stand and walk away.
Thinking
- This is very classical posture we adopt while seriously thinking or planning about something.

nervousness.This can result in jingling any change or keys, making it even more obvious you don’t know what to do with your hands!
Symbolic Gestures
communicate words, numbers, position.
For example:
A raised hand signals for a stop
A thumbs-up showing you agree
Three fingers for the number three
Pointing to show a position – up, down, behind, beside.

Descriptive Gestures
communicate an idea or movement.
For example:
Spreading hands apart to show length
Using hands to show a shape.
Swaying hands to show a flow of movement.

Emotional Gestures
suggest feelings.
For example:
A clenched fist to show anger. It is hostile and threatening. It could also convey the sense you are hiding something.
Hands clasped to show pleading.
Using a pointed finger. This makes you look accusatory, even if that wasn't your intent.
