  • We are going to try to scratch the surface that is Body language today. Many books have been written on this subject, including that which is noted on the first slide, but it will be impossible to cover absolutely everything in one hour, so I am not going to try. We will however, look at the basics regarding Facial Expressions, Handshakes and Gestures, the last one, from a cultural perspective.\n
  • I read an interesting fact the other day, it said that native speakers speak at a rate of about 100 words per minute, but think at 800 words per minute, that’s about 50,000 WPH! Where do all these words go? Although not spoken, these words, or thoughts are transmitted very subtly, and only a few people will ever pick up on them.\n\nThey are picked up by people who are said to be perceptive or intuitive about reading people. In other words, they are picked up by people who can read or at least pick up on body language, they may say things like:\n

  • \n I’ve got a bad feeling about him\n Something’s not quite right about her\n Something doesn’t add up\n I don’t trust a thing he says\n I’ve got a gut feeling that he is not being honest.\n I have a hunch that he stole the money.\n He makes me feel uncomfortable.\n\nThese people, may not be able to understand the exact message being conveyed, but they subconsciously compare the words that are being spoken and the intonation that they are spoken with, with the language of the body. \n\nIn other words, they have developed a “gut feeling” or a “hunch” that something is not right.\n\nGenerally speaking, women use these expressions more often than men. Women are much better than men at reading body language cues, especially those who have raised children, since the first few years the mother relies solely on the non-verbal channel to communicate with the child. \n\nperception |pərˈsepSHən|\nnoun\nthe ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses: the normal limits to human perception.\n• the state of being or process of becoming aware of something in such a way: the perception of pain.\n• a way of regarding, understanding, or interpreting something; a mental impression: Hollywood's perception of the tastes of the American public | we need to challenge many popular perceptions of old age.\n• intuitive understanding and insight: “He wouldn't have accepted,” said my mother with unusual perception.\n• Psychology & Zoology the neurophysiological processes, including memory, by which an organism becomes aware of and interprets external stimuli.\nDERIVATIVES\nperceptional |-SHənl, -SHnəl|adjective\nORIGIN late Middle English: from Latin perceptio(n-), from the verb percipere ‘seize, understand’ (see perceive) .\n\n\nintuition |ˌint(y)o͞oˈiSHən|\nnoun\nthe ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning: we shall allow our intuition to guide us.\n• a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning: your insights and intuitions as a native speaker are positively sought.\n
  • Five Uses for Body Language Signs\nTo enforce a message. For example by using your hand to point while giving directions.\nTo complement or contradict a verbal message. For example you might wink when saying something to contradict what you’ve said. Or in North America, you might nod reinforce a positive message.\nTo substitute the verbal message if you can’t speak. You could put a finger over your lips to ask someone to be quiet or wave your hand if you want someone to come closer.\nTo regulate interactions. You might hold your hand up to ask someone to be silent.\n\n

  • Discuss among yourselves, what do you understand by body language\n\nFrom wikipedia:\nBody language is a form of mental and physical ability of human non-verbal communication, which consists of body posture, gestures, facial expressions, and eye movements. Humans send and interpret such signals almost entirely subconsciously.\n\nToday, we can’t go into too much detail, as whole books fail to cover everything. But no look at body language would be complete without discussing facial expressions!\n\n\n

  • Lets start with the smile. Probably 90% of facial expressions center around the mouth. \n\nSmiles are contagious. When you smile at someone, they almost always smile back, whether you know them or not, even if the smile is fake. It has been proven that encounters run much more smoothly, are more enduring, and have more\npositive outcomes if the participants regularly smile, and negotiations will be much more successful if started with a smile.\n\nSmiles are a way of bonding, and reaching out to another human being. WHen genuine, it reaches to the core of a person. \n\nEvidence shows conclusively that smiles and laughter build the immune system, defend the body against illness and disease, medicate the body, sell ideas, teach better, attract more friends and extend life. Humour heals.\nHowever, not all smiles are genuine...\n
  • These are genuine smiles! The man on the left has the characteristic wrinkles around the eyes, and the baby on the right, well... babies don’t know how to fake a smile!\n\n\n
  • What does this kind of smile tell you?\n\n1. The Tight-Lipped Smile\nThis smile is quite common, and the reasons can be quite varied, although they almost always conceal something. It may be something physical, like bad teeth, or it may simply be the result of holding back information, either through lying, or not telling the full picture. \nWomen, seem to be very receptive to this, and men quite oblivious. Women, might actually be the ones who use it the most, especially when they don’t want to reveal how they really feel about someone or a situation.\nFor example, one woman might say of another woman, 'She's a very capable woman who knows what she wants', followed by a tight-lipped smile, rather than saying what she was really thinking: 'I think she's an aggressive, pushy bitch!' \n\n
  • 2. The Twisted Smile\nThis smile, shows opposite emotions on each side of the face. If you were to pace a mirror down the centre of the smile, you would either get a smile or an angry frown. \nThe Twisted Smile is peculiar to the Western world and can only be done deliberately which means it can send only one message - sarcasm.\n
  • 3. The Drop-Jaw Smile\nThis is a fake smile, though an effective one. It is used a lot by people in the public eye to feign enjoyment. These guys are human too, and as we have discussed, even a fake smile will engender positive responses. Keeping up appearances can be tiresome, and if you really have nothing to smile about, then there is no other alternative! \nThe genuine smile incurs wrinkling around the corner of the eyes, this is an attempt to reproduce that same effect.\nPoliticians know that failure to even feign a smile will likely lead to loss of votes. \nNow we have looked at smiles, both genuine and fake, lets turn briefly to general facial expressions. Most people will be able to identify positive versus negative, but may not be able to articulate exactly what they think. \n\n

  • The lips are drawn in at the side of the mouth, and the eyes are staring out with fierce intensity. There is no messing with this guy!\n
  • Sad, not so upset, but perhaps she is just missing someone, or regretting something.\n
  • This is very fierce, uncontrolled anger, at the point of aggression. The kind that can get you in to trouble. \n

  • Although this looks like an even handed handshake, the fact that the Isreali president os on the left of the picture, suggest that he has control, since to the audience, his palm is facing down. \n
