Body language always communicates real thoughts, which is why it is important to know how to read and interpret it: we explain how to do it with the most common gestures
All the gestures we make speak of our thoughts through body language
When we interface with someone we accompany our words with (more or less evident) movements that are so automatic that we are not aware that we are doing them.
Have you ever talked and scratched your head? Or instinctively have a hard time staying still? These gestures are part of that whole sphere that tells our most truthful thoughts about the conversation or the person in front of us.
Anthropologist Albert Mehrabian has established that only 7% of the information that comes from a speech is provided by words.
The remaining percentage concerns non-verbal behavior: 38% of the information comes from the tone of the voice and 55% comes directly from the body's signals such as posture or eye movements.
Through this gallery we show you how to interpret the most common gestures that accompany our conversations.
