The 10 Most Common Body Language Mistakes we all make

end-of-work-day

According to “Forbes”, here are the 10 most common body language mistakes people make, and why you shouldn’t do them . . .

  1.  Avoiding eye contact. You look like you’re hiding something, or don’t respect the other person.
  2.  Slouching. It looks like your energy is zapped, and you have low self-esteem.
  3.  A weak handshake. Which can signal a lack of authority.
  4.  Crossing your arms. It makes you seem standoffish and not interested in what the other person is saying.
  5.  Looking at the ground when you talk. It makes you seem weak and self-conscious.
  6.  Angling your body away from the other person instead of facing them. It makes it seem like you want the conversation to end.
  7.  Fidgeting. It makes you seem anxious.
  8.  Standing too close. When you talk to someone, you should always be at least a foot-and-a-half away from them.
  9.  Glancing at the clock. It makes you seem disinterested and arrogant.
  10.  Frowning or scowling. You can do it unconsciously, and it makes it seem like you’re disagreeing with what someone said, which isn’t necessarily the case.
