    I think once you figure out how to read body language and manipulate your own body language, it becomes a huge advantage in how you communicate and come across to other people. It's like an art. Body language can be so subtle, but it can affect a person's perception of you on a more subconscious level. I think to be too unaware of other people's & your own body language is really a disadvantage, but I don't know enough about it to really explain it here.

    That's what one of my high school teachers put on my report card. She also said she thought I was a bit thick--in front of the whole class (She didn't know I was in the class at the time).

    Body language is mostly subconscious. Think about how you speak. Do you consciously control the vocal chords to make the sounds that come out of your mouth? Do you consciously process the words spoken by other people? No. In a similar way you speak body language and other people intercept it without either of you being consciously aware of it. Body language is processed by mirror neurons in the Amylgada part of the brain. This is quite a primitive instinctual part of the brain. You process this information with emotion vs. the cognitive processes in higher brain function.

    Then there's that intentional body language. You know. Like when you want to have a guest leave you may start emptying ash trays or glance at the clock. Some people seem oblivious to those social cues.

    But not looking at someone while you are speaking and other rote sorts of interpretations can be misleading. Sometimes when people are lying they will stare intently into your eyes.

    I watch for a nose touch. Often when people are lying they will at some point touch their noses. That's one clue. Sometimes it just means a itchy nose.

    And it doesn't necessarily mean a lie is being told. It can also mean that the person is in conflict about what they are saying.

    This can be especially amusing when watching politicians speak off the cuff.

    I see a lot of sources that say about 55% of communication is done through body language. Interrogators know a lot about this subject.
