Body language means a lot more than the average person gives it credit for. You may be saying one thing, but your body can be telling an entirely different tale. Do you wonder why all those big words you spit at that hot chick didn’t work? It was probably because your body language screamed that you were lying. Body language can send the wrong signals to people as well. For instance, a perfectly confident individual who slouches may appear to be unsure or even weak to the people watching him or her. Here are six bad body language signals you don’t know you’re sending.
Slouching. Here’s one that most people are aware of. A confident person doesn’t just display it in speech and action alone. They show it in physical appearance as well. An erect stance, chest forward, head up straight is a true sign of someone who feels confident. Slouching makes you appear weak, shy, or scared of confrontation. So even if you are those things, shoulders back, stand up straight, and at least appear to have some guts.
