Ten Tips For Interpreting Body Language

    Learning how to read and interpret body language may be one of the most important things you can learn to become a better communicator.

    According to Psychology Today, there have been two studies found to claim that 55% of communication is body language, 38% is tone of voice, and only 7% is the actual words spoken. What we say may not nearly matter as how we use our body language to present ourselves.

    This is great news, especially if you’re an introvert, learning a new language, or traveling to a foreign country.

    But more importantly, reading body language can help you get in the mind of the person you’re speaking with.

    Understanding how to read body language can show you if someone is feeling uncomfortable, interested in you, or even lying to you. It’s a powerful tool that applies to anything we do in our personal and professional lives.

    So how to interpret body language? This infographic from Business Insider shows the most common facial gestures, expressions, and body positioning you’ll face in your daily encounters.
