                            Angry
Affectionate

Ashamed                    Confident




                                       Confused

                                Tired
          Satisfied
Steepling Hands

This is frequently used in superior/subordinate
  interaction. It demonstrates confidence and a
  'know-it-all' attitude.

There are 2 versions:

1)The raised steeple - when the person is talking,
  expressing their opinion

2) The lowered steeple - when the person is listening
Palm Gripping

This is a confidence/superiority position. The
person has their stomach, heart and throat regions
exposed which is an unconscious act of
fearlessness.

If you are in stressful situation assuming this
position can help calm you down and take control
of the situation.
Arms Crossed


This is a negative or defensive position.

Most people will assume this position if they
disagree with what they are hearing.

Even if someone is agreeing with you, if their
arms are crossed they will have a negative
attitude towards you.
Mirroring Positions

This is one of the most important interpretations of body
language we can learn.

You often see two people talking, standing in the same
pose. This indicates that they are in agreement with each
other, they like each other.

If you want to establish a rapport with someone, mirror their
poses - this will have the effect of relaxing them and giving
them a non-verbal indication that you are both thinking along
the same lines.
