Body language is the unspoken or non verbal communication that goes on in every Face-to-Face encounter with another human being.  It tells you their true feelings towards you and how well your words are being received.



While talking to a person, the way content is being interpreted to the other person has to be taken care of. Our body language specifies the relationship between the two speaking and at least what they think about each other. Words can only provide the message, but they cannot specify the emotions involved in this content. Words can only have stipulated meaning only through body language. Most of the communicated body language is at unconscious level, though they tend to have a widespread pressure over the message quality. Body language only comes into picture when feelings are involved, in case we are fond of someone, it is quite difficult to express the same directly to the person.

Expressions like waving, slouching, touching and pointing are all forms of nonverbal communication body language. Some of the unconscious gestures would be making an eye rub, nose itch, crossing arms, ear or head scratching, chin resting have been found to convey most important information in stipulated context. Body language reveals the feeling and also inner meanings of the content or message put forward to others and also it happens vice versa with others. The process of sending these signals to each other among two individuals can happen either at conscious or unconscious levels. There has been extensive research conducted on body language to help people control unintended expressions in order to make them successful in all aspects.

Up to 93 % of communication is non-verbal. Including tone of voice, eye movement, posture, hand gestures, facial expressions and more. The pressure of body language can especially be felt in emotional situations. Body language usually prevails over words. Are you good at reading body language?

The eyes communicate more than any other part of the human anatomy. Staring or gazing at others can create pressure and tension in the room. Gangs have fought over the way someone looked at them. Researcher suggests that individuals who can routinely out gaze another develop a sense of control and power over others not so inclined. Maintained eye contact can show if a person is trustworthy, sincere or caring. Shifty eyes, too much blinking can suggest deception. People with eye movements that are relaxed and comfortable yet attentive to the person they are conversing with are seen as more sincere and honest.

The smile: There are 50 or so different types of human smiles. By analyzing the movements of over 80 facial muscles involved in smiling, researchers can tell when a smile is true. Look for the crinkle in the skin at the middle, outside corner of the eyes and if it is not there, the smile is probably fake. Authentic smiles are smiles that "crest" or change rapidly from a small facial movement to a broad open expression.

EYE contact is one of the most important aspects of dealing with thers, especially people we've just met. Maintaining good eye contact shows respect and interest in what they have to say. Here in the UK we tend to keep eye contact around 60-70% of the time. (However, there are wide cultural differences, so be

careful in other  countries) By doing this you won't make the other people feel self conscious, like they've got a bit of vegetable stuck between their teeth or a dew drop  hanging from the nose. Instead, it will give them a feeling of comfort and genuine warmth in your company, any more eye contact than this and you can be too intense, any less and you give off a signal that you are lacking interest in them or their conversation.
