Body Language - Deepstash
Body Language

Body Language

  • Human beings are strategically blind to body language because it often betrays our ugly, selfish, competitive motives
  • A cue is similar to a signal, in that it conveys information, except that it benefits only the receiver
  • An open posture makes a person vulnerable
  • Much of the thrill and drama of courtship lies in struggling to decipher the other's mixed signals
  • When we feel comfortable around others, we touch them and allow ourselves to be touched
  • Eye contact is considered an act of aggression.
