- Women touch each other a lot more than men do, which perhaps is less than surprising given that female friends are far closer and share far more of themselves emotionally than male friends do.
- Women have much more expressive faces. They smile more, but they also show more anger, sadness, joy, love and all other emotions.
- Women (and particularly business women) often stand with both hands on their hips in what body language specialists call a “ready” position. Though this position can look moody to a guy, women mostly use it to create an image of power that puts them on a level pegging with men when in the boardroom.
- Women show more body language across the board than men. They will use their hands more while talking, show more emotion in their face, touch more, use more variation in voice and so on. They are simply more expressive than the average guy.
This last point brings us to a mistake a great many men make with women.

What is body language? How do you read body language? Why is it important? ARoleModel reveals the answers
The amount of time we spend looking at the other person when in conversation, and the amount of time they spend looking at us, tells us a lot.
People who like one another spend a long time looking at each other when talking. Maintaining eye contact is a sign of favour and trustworthiness. Conversely, spending a lot of time looking away from the person you’re talking to will make them think you dislike them and are untrustworthy.
So, just how much time should you spend looking at the other person? 60 to 70% eye contact is advisable when aiming to build rapport with the other person. This length of time will tell someone you like them (which will make them like you in return).
Whether or not you actually do spend this much time looking at another person will also come down to confidence. It can be hard to maintain eye contact when feeling under confident, and it’s worth remembering this about other people. Just because they are looking away often does not necessarily mean they dislike you. They could just be feeling intimidated or under confident. Try to take into account the rest of a person’s body language, as well as what they are saying and also circumstances before concluding that they dislike you. If you correctly deduce that someone is actually okay with you but feels insecure, and you then positively and actively make them feel comfortable, there’ll be sure to think the world of you.

Want to learn to read body language? These five body language books are the absolute best. Desmond Morris: People Watching Here’s the one simple truth many body language books fail to mention: the vast majority of facts and insights presented in modern body language books were originally set to the page by British zoologist and ethologist Desmond Morris, and tough People Watching might not be most entertaining read, it certainly is one of the most important books to ever tackle the subject of body language, as well as being one of the most thorough. Reading People Watching is like observing the human animal through a microscope. Morris dissects the human animal like no other. One can almost see the tweezers with which Morris probes our species. Extract: “The wagged forefinger (left) or the laterally shaken hand (middle) often act in place of the simple Head Shake. These are examples of Substitute Signals, where one part of the body (the forefinger or the hand) replaces the usual organ (the head) involved in sending the signal. In a similar way, the North American Indian sign for ‘yes’ is a dip of the forefinger (right), with this movement substituting for a nod of the bead.” Download the ebook Demond Morris People Watching Or get a physical copy here: PEOPLEWATCHING Barbara and Allan Pease: The Definitive Book of Body Language Some may find Desmond Morris’ work a little overbearing, in which case the work of Barbara and Allan Pease is recommended. This is the book that brought body language into the mainstream, a simple, concise overview of some of the most important body language gestures. Though almost all the information in the book can be found in Desmond Morris’ work, Barabara and Allan Pease do an excellent job of simplifying the interpretation of body language. There is a comprise to be made here: the simplicity The Definitive Book of Body Language offers makes the subject accessible, but it does so at the expense of some important details. This leaves The Definitive Book of Body Language as an enjoyable and informative introduction, if a little too pop and rather too thin on details. Extract from The Definitive Book of Body Language “Salespeople are taught to watch for a customer’s exposed palms when he gives reasons or objections about why he can’t buy a product, because when someone is giving valid reasons, they usually show their palms. When people are being open in explaining their reasons they use their hands and flash their palms whereas someone who isn’t telling the truth is likely to give the same verbal responses but conceal their hands.” Download the ebook Or get a physical copy: The Definitive Book of Body Language Joe Navarro, What Every Body is Saying Joe Navarro is an ex FBI agent who created many of the theories of nonverbal communication used by the FBI to read potential criminals (Navarro goes to great lengths to chronicle his work in the FBI, which some may find entertaining reading, others an unwanted obtrusion to the central theme of the book). Joe Navarro’s What Every Body is Saying manages to separate itself from the pack of body language books by offering clear advice on how to read people. Where most body language books offer diagrams, descriptions and explanations of body language gestures, often in encyclopaedic format, Navarro does away with this approach, choosing instead to recounts stories of how he personally interpreted individual suspects body language, revealing his personal approach to people reading in order to provide the reader with case studies that teach not just the facts, but the how, why and wherefore of people reading. Extract from Joe Navarro’s What Every Body is saying: “Universal nonverbal behaviors constitute one group of body cues: those that are relatively the same for everyone. There is a second type of body cue called an idiosyncratic nonverbal behavior, which is a signal that is relatively unique to a particular individual. In attempting to identify idiosyncratic signals, you’ll want to be on the lookout for behavioral patterns in people you interact with on a regular basis (friends, family, coworkers, persons who provide goods or services to you on a consistent basis). The better you know an individual, or the longer you interact with him or her, the easier it will be to discover this information because you will have a larger database upon which to make your judgments. For example, if you note your teenager scratches his head and bites his lip when he is about to take a test, this may be a reliable idiosyncratic tell that speaks of his nervousness or lack of preparation. No doubt this has become part of his repertoire for dealing with stress, and you will see it again and again because [...]

The body language in this image of Jessie J is overtly sexual. She’s giving virtually every piece of flirting body language in the book. She’s showing her armpits (a “come-on” signal”), her chest is open (a confidence signal and sexual sign in women), her stomach is revealed, her eyes are wide (which shows love / favour to the thing she’s looking at). There are two exception to this flirting body language: the closed legs (which is a “no” sign) and her clenched fists, which suggest aggression. It’s still a very evocative and striking image and one of the highlights of all Jessie J videos.

Afraid of small talk in social situations? So are a lot of people. In fact, many of the world’s brightest minds, including top executives of Fortune 500 companies, Pulitzer Prize winning authors and even actors (you can take my word for that one). Yes, many of the brighter minds in society are terrible and the chatty chatty.

So, what can these poor, mentally unable genius’ do to become as good at the small talk as they are at big talk?
