Our body is the best reflector of our mind and this is why each and every body movement and gesture speaks something of our inner thought to the outer world. The Definitive Book of Body Language will help you know about our various postures and gestures and their actual interpretations. Synopsis The body makes certain gestures and movements that reveal specific characteristic traits about a person.
People's body language reveals that what they say is often very different from what they think or feel. It is a scientific fact that people's gestures give away their true intentions.
Every day we are confronted by hundreds of different signals that can mean anything from 'That's a great idea' to 'You must be kidding'. And we are all sending out these signals whether we realise it or not. Now, in this authoritative guide written with great humour and insight, you can learn the secrets of body language to give you more confidence and control in any situation — from negotiating a deal to finding the right partner.
Discover the techniques that will show you how to interpret gestures, read the underlying thoughts and emotions — and reach the right conclusions.

City Spatial Zones. Male Courtship Signals and Gestures. These are some of the people who have directly or indirectly contributed to this book, whether they knew it or not:. By a man's fingernails, by his coat-sleeve, by his boots, by his trouser-knees, by the calluses of his forefinger and.
That all united should fail to enlighten the com-petent enquirer in any case is almost inconceivable. I joined the life insurance business at the age of twenty, and went on to break several sales records for the firm I worked for, becoming the youngest person to sell over a million dollars' worth of business in my first year. As a young man I was fortunate that the techniques I'd learned as a boy in reading body language while selling pots and pans could be transferred to this new area, and was directly related to the success I could have in any venture involving people.
The ability to work out what is really happening with a person is simple - not easy, but simple. It's about matching what you see and hear in the environment in which it all happens and drawing probable conclusions.
Most people, however, only see the things they think they are seeing. Let's throw one of these big rocks in.
That should make a noise. They picked up two football-sized rocks and tossed them into the hole and waited, but still they heard nothing. The two men stood there, astonished at what they'd just seen.
It was the craziest thing we've ever seen! It came running like the wind out of the woods and jumped into that hole! My goat was chained to a railway sleeper! Most men and nearly half of all women don't know what they look like from the neck down. People everywhere have developed a fascination with the body language of politicians because everyone knows that politi-cians sometimes pretend to believe in something that they don't believe in, or infer that they are someone other than who they really are.
Politicians spend much of their time ducking, dodging, avoiding, pretending, lying, hiding their emotions and feelings, using smokescreens or mirrors and waving to imaginary friends in the crowd. But we instinctively know that they will eventually be tripped up by contradictory body lan-guage signals, so we love to watch them closely, in anticipation of catching them out.
Unless you have an innate ability or have learned to read body language, the chances are you're missing most of it too. This book will show you what you've been missing.
Not only have we considerably expanded on that one, we have also introduced research from new scientific disciplines, such as evolutionary biology and evolutionary psychology as well as technologies such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI , which shows what happens in the brain. We have written it in a style that means it can be opened and read on almost any page at random.
We've kept the content mainly to the move-ment of the body, expressions and gestures, because these are the things you need to learn to get the most out of every face-to-face encounter. The Definitive Book of Body Language will make you more aware of your own non-verbal cues and signals, and will show you how to use them to communicate effectively and how to get the reactions you want.
This book isolates and examines each component of body language and gesture in simple terms to make it accessible to you. Few gestures are made in isolation of others however, so we have also, at the same time, tried to avoid oversimplifying things. A birdwatcher doesn't study birds so that he can shoot them down and keep them as trophies. In the same way, the knowledge and skills in body language serve to make every encounter with another person an exciting experi-ence.
For the purpose of simplicity, and unless otherwise stated, the use of 'he' or 'him' will apply equally to both genders. The original book was intended as a working manual for sales people, managers, negotiators and executives, but this one can be used for any aspect of your life, be it at home, on a date or at work.
The Definitive Book of Body Language is the result of over 30 years of our cumulative knowledge and involvement in this field and we give you the basic 'vocabulary' you need to read attitudes and emotions. This book will give you answers to some of the most puzzling questions you've ever had about why people use some of the behaviours they do, and it will change forever your own behaviour.
It will seem as if you've always been in a dark room and, while you could always feel the furnishings, the wall hangings and the door, you've never actually seen what they look like. This book will be like turning on the lights to see what was always there. But now, you'll know exactly what things are, where they are and what to do about them.
Everyone knows someone who can walk into a room full of people and, within minutes, give an accurate description about the relationships between those people and what they are feeling. The ability to read a person's attitudes and thoughts by their behaviour was the original communication system used by humans before spoken language evolved. Today's politicians understand that politics is about image and appearance and most high-profile politicians now have personal body language consultants to help them come across as being sincere, caring and honest, especially when they're not.
It seems almost incredible that, over the thousands of years of our evolution, body language has been actively studied on any scale only since the s and that most of the public has become aware of its existence only since our book Body. Speech has been part of our communication repertoire only in recent times in evolutionary terms, and is mainly used to convey facts and data. Speech probably first developed between 2 million and , years ago, during which time our brain tripled its size.
Before then, body language and sounds made in the throat were the main forms of conveying emotions and feel-ings, and that is still the case today. But because we focus on the words people speak, most of us are largely uninformed about body language, let alone its importance in our lives.
Our spoken language, however, recognises how important body language is to our communication. Here are just a few of the phrases we use —. Get it off your chest. Keep a stiff upper lip. Stay at arm's length. Keep your chin up. Silent movie actors like Charlie Chaplin were the pioneers of body language skills, as this was the only means of communi-cation available on the screen.
Each actor's skill was classed as good or bad by the extent to which he could use gestures and body signals to communicate to the audience.
When talking films became popular and less emphasis was placed on the non-verbal aspects of acting, many silent movie actors faded into obscurity and only those with good verbal and non-verbal skills survived.
As far as the academic study of body language goes, perhaps the most influential pre-twentieth-century work was Charles Darwin's The Expression of the Emotions in Man and. However, it spawned the modern studies of facial expressions and body language, and many of Darwin's ideas and observations have since been validated by researchers around the world.
Since that time, researchers have noted and recorded almost a million non-verbal cues and signals. Studies also show that when negotiating over the telephone, the person with the stronger argument usually wins, but this is not so true when negotiating face-to-face, because overall we make our final decisions more on what we see than what we hear.
Despite what it may be politically correct to believe, when we meet people for the first time we quickly make judgements about their friendliness, dominance and potential as a sexual partner - and their eyes are not the first place we look. Most researchers now agree that words are used primarily for conveying information, while body language is used for negotiating interpersonal attitudes and in some cases is used as a substitute for verbal messages.
For example, a woman can give a man a 'look to kill' and will convey a very clear message to him without opening her mouth. Regardless of culture, words and movements occur together with such predictability that Birdwhistell was the first to claim that a well-trained person should be able to tell what move-ment a person is making by listening to their voice.
Birdwhistell even learned how to tell what language a person was speaking, simply by watching their gestures. Many people find difficulty in accepting that humans are still biologically animals. We are a species of primate — Homo. The fascinating thing is that the human animal is rarely aware that its postures, move-ments and gestures can tell one story while its voice may be telling another.
Body language is an outward reflection of a person's emo-tional condition. Each gesture or movement can be a valuable key to an emotion a person may be feeling at the time. For example, a man who is self-conscious about gaining weight may tug at the fold of skin under his chin; the woman who is aware of extra pounds on her thighs may smooth her dress down; the person who is feeling fearful or defensive might fold their arms or cross their legs or both; and a man talking with a large-breasted woman may consciously avoid staring at her breasts while, at the same time, unconsciously use groping ges-tures with his hands.
The key to reading body language is being able to understand a person's emotional condition while listening to what they are saying and noting the circumstances under which they are saying it. This allows you to separate fact from fiction and reality from fantasy.
In recent times, we humans have had an obsession with the spoken word and our ability to be conver-sationalists. Most people, however, are remarkably unaware of body language signals and their impact, despite the fact that we now know that most of the messages in any face-to-face conversation are revealed through body signals.
Bob Hawke once defended pay increases for politicians by comparing their salaries to corporate executive salaries. He claimed that exec-utive salaries had risen by a huge amount and that proposed politicians' increases were relatively smaller. Each time he mentioned politicians' incomes, he held his hands a yard 1m apart. When he mentioned executive salaries, however, he held them only a foot 30cm apart. His hand distances revealed that he felt politicians were getting a much better deal than he was prepared to admit.
President Jacques Chirac — measuring the size of an issue or simply boasting about his love life? In other words, when we say that we have a 'hunch' or 'gut feeling' that someone has told us a lie, we usually mean that their body language and their spoken words don't agree.
This is also what speakers call audience aware-ness, or relating to a group. For example, if an audience were sitting back in their seats with their chins down and arms crossed on their chest, a 'perceptive' speaker would get a hunch or feeling that his delivery was not going across well. He would realise that he needed to take a different approach to gain audience involvement. Likewise, a speaker who was not 'perceptive' would blunder on regardless.
Being 'perceptive' means being able to spot the contradictions between someone's words and their body language. Overall, women are far more perceptive than men, and this has given rise to what is commonly referred to as 'women's intu-ition'. Women have an innate ability to pick up and decipher non-verbal signals, as well as having an accurate eye for small details. This is why few husbands can lie to their wives and get away with it and why, conversely, most women can pull the wool over a man's eyes without his realising it.

LST, in a box of floppies in my desk drawer. But I think I may be on the way to understanding why. NO one was using the tennis court this morning.
During pregnancy, women are at an elevated risk for developing stretch marks, also called striae, because of the rapid and sudden growth of their body. Stretch marks are formed when underlying tissue grows faster than the skin layers covering it, causing small tears in the epidermal surface.

Что? - Сьюзан не верила своим ушам. - Офицер хотел доставить его в госпиталь, но канадец был вне себя от ярости, сказав, что скорее пойдет в Канаду пешком, чем еще раз сядет на мотоцикл. Все, что полицейский мог сделать, - это проводить его до маленькой муниципальной клиники неподалеку от парка. Там он его и оставил. - Думаю, нет нужды спрашивать, куда направился Дэвид, - хмуро сказала. ГЛАВА 17 Дэвид Беккер ступил на раскаленные плиты площади Испании.
Думаешь, надо вернуть им отчет. Она посмотрела на него недовольно. В том, что касалось Мидж Милкен, существовали две вещи, которые никому не позволялось ставить под сомнение. Первой из них были предоставляемые ею данные. Бринкерхофф терпеливо ждал, пока она изучала цифры. - Хм-м, - наконец произнесла. - Вчерашняя статистика безукоризненна: вскрыто двести тридцать семь кодов, средняя стоимость - восемьсот семьдесят четыре доллара.

Да, - ответил дружный хор голосов. - Так вот… - Соши шумно вздохнула. - Похоже, я ошиблась. - Что?! - чуть не подпрыгнул Джабба. - Мы ищем совсем не .
Одним быстрым движением она выпрямилась, выпустила струю прямо в лицо Беккеру, после чего схватила сумку и побежала к двери. Когда она оглянулась, Дэвид Беккер лежал на полу, прижимая ладони к лицу и корчась от нестерпимого жжения в глазах. ГЛАВА 71 Токуген Нуматака закурил уже четвертую сигару и принялся мерить шагами кабинет, потом схватил телефонную трубку и позвонил на коммутатор. - Есть какие-нибудь сведения о номере? - выпалил он, прежде чем телефонистка успела сказать алло. - Пока ничего, сэр. Кажется, придется повозиться дольше, чем ожидалось, - это был звонок с мобильника. С мобильника, - мысленно повторил Нуматака.
В его голосе слышалось скорее недоумение, чем шок: - Что ты имеешь в виду. - Хейл… - прошептала Сьюзан. - Он и есть Северная Дакота. Снова последовало молчание: Стратмор размышлял о том, что она сказала. - Следопыт? - Он, похоже, был озадачен. - Следопыт вышел на Хейла.
- Он сказал, что на кольце были выгравированы какие-то буквы. - Буквы. - Да, если верить ему - не английские. - Стратмор приподнял брови, точно ждал объяснений. - Японские иероглифы.
В трубке повисло молчание. - Мидж… - Джабба попробовал извиниться. - Позволь мне объяснить.
Вскоре спуск закончился, переключились какие-то шестеренки, и лифт снова начал движение, на этот раз горизонтальное. Сьюзан чувствовала, как кабина набирает скорость, двигаясь в сторону главного здания АНБ. Наконец она остановилась, и дверь открылась.
