  • This is the one of the most important 5 practical body language tricks because this action is most common out of all.
  • This particular action you can use to kind of break down people’s like their dislikes their insecurities.
  • What they think about you what they think about what you just said.
  • You have also got keep in mind that there is a different situation where this kind of action takes place.
  • So there are 4 types of situation which I explained below.

  a) They are introverts

  • The first kind of situation where you will see people folding their arms if they are basically introvert.
  • This type of people like folding arms most of the time.
  • An introvert is someone who doesn’t like being around unknown people.
  • They don’t like social situations and talking to people.
  • If person character is just shy they will do this.

  b) Sudden arm folding

  • The second kind of situation is where people suddenly pop up their arms into a fold.
  • This might mean either they are insecure in front of you or in a certain environment or maybe they are feeling protective about themselves.
  • There are possibilities also that they are trying to hide something from you or hide something from the particular environment.
  • So if you see someone pops up their arms when they enter a room maybe they don’t like people in that room or they don’t like being in that room.

  c) Conversational

  • How you can read other people’s character their likes their dislikes.
  • So if someone begins the conversation with you by folding their arms.
  • Either they don’t like you they are little uncomfortable around you.
  • They are a little bit insecure about themselves around you or maybe they attract to you.
  • They kind of feeling a sense of protectiveness about themselves.

  d) Mid-Conversational

  • Suppose you are in conversation with someone and you say something and they fold their arms.
  • This is the where you can break down their likes dislikes in their character.
  • Suppose you said something that they don’t agree with then before their arms.
  • You have got to understand OK what I have said before this.
  • Whatever thing you have spoken about the topic that you have spoken about.
  • If they folded their arms after you have spoken about that topic.
  • Either they don’t want to talk about that topic or they don’t agree with the opinion you have expressed.

  2) Comfortable Vs Uncomfortable Body Language

Your Comfort or Your DIscomfort in a situation is kind of thrown out to the external world through your arms and your hands.

So obviously we spoke about Close Body Language like this. that’s uncomfortable body language.

   A) Open body language

  a) Arms to the side 

  • Open body language is all about your arms placed on the side.

  b) Not Folded (hands being comfortable)

  • You are not folding them and very importantly it’s also about your hands in a comfortable position.
  • Your fingers won’t be clenched up they won’t be fiddling.
  • They won’t be doing something that you are not doing in your natural state.
  • They are just gonna be placed comfortably on the side like this.

  c) Don’t become too stiff

  • Also, keep in mind in this whole attempt to make yourself look comfortable don’t become too stiff because that’s also Uncomfortable.

  d) Slight smile

  • The next aspect of Comfortable Body Language is a Slight Smile on your face.
  • If you are someone who doesn’t smile a lot but if you have what they call resting bitch face then that’s ok.

Don’t smile openly with your mouth.

  e) Positive Eye contact

  • Instead just maintain eye contact but very importantly maintain Positive Eye Contact.

  B) Breaking Eye contact 

Those are the basics of comfortable and uncomfortable body language but also remember this nothing says that I’m feeling uncomfortable like Breaking Eye Contact does.

So you have also got keep in mind just the way you looked at Folding arms as a Situational action even Closing your eyes or Breaking eye contact can be situational.

  a) Start off the conversation

If someone comes up to you and then you Break Eye Contact or you are not talking to them by staring directly into their eyes they probably know that you are feeling a little bit uncomfortable.

 b) Middle of the conversation

Similarly in middle of the conversation if you Break Eye Contact or if you Close your eyes for some time and hide from the external world that signifies a sense of discomfort & insecurity.

So have control over this Comfortable vs Uncomfortable body language tricks.
