10 Psychological Tips That Will Help You Study and Analyse People’s Behavior

- Advertisement -

Psychology as a discipline is huge. In all its beauty and complexities, psychologists study human behavior and analyze people’s body language. Our body speaks a language of its own. Observing and paying attention to our body language and that of others can tell us a great deal about what others think or feel.

10 Psychological tricks that can help you analyze people instantly

1. Rubbing The Chin

This is what people do when they are trying to make a decision. They may be looking down, sideways, or up…they may not even notice what they are looking at because they are deep in thought.

2. Leaning Forward

When people are interested in the conversation or like someone, they usually lean forward. The body moves forward intuitively when engaged in a conversation of interest.

3. Leaning Back

When people are tired of the conversation or are uncomfortable in the presence of the other person, they may lean back.

4. Rubbing Hands

Rubbing hands together generally signifies that a person is hopeful about something. It may also signify awaiting some benefits.

5. Eye Contact

Eye contact is a form of body language which is very important during communication. When you keep eye contact with the person you are talking to it indicates that you are focused and paying attention. It means that you are listening to what the person has to say.

6. Tapping/Swinging From Heels To Toes

This shows that a person feels anxious about something. It can also be a sign of impatience.

7. Covering The Mouth With a Hand

When people want to hide an emotional reaction, they might cover their mouths to avoid displaying smiles or smirks.

8. Standing With Hands Placed on the Hips

Can be an indication that a person is in control, or it can also possibly be a sign of aggressiveness.

9. Clasping The Hands Behind the Back

Might indicate that a person is feeling bored, anxious, or even angry.

10. Open Posture

Open posture involves keeping the trunk of the body open and exposed. This type of posture indicates friendliness, openness, and willingness. Closed posture involves hiding the trunk of the body often by hunching forward and keeping the arms and legs crossed. This type of posture can be an indicator of hostility, unfriendliness, and anxiety.

Understanding body language can go a long way in helping you communicate better with others and interpreting what others might be trying to convey.

It’s very important to look at these nonverbal signals in relation to verbal communication, other nonverbal signals, and the situation to better understand them and not simply assume.

And why do I feel so very uncomfortable, & don’t like being around my adult children or people that was in my life during my 1st marriage?? I cry a lot.
