    This is true. So I imagine it is all a matter of taste.

    Do you find game playing to your taste? Or do you prefer intimacy?

    And interpersonal game playing, of course, is designed to avoid personal intimacy.

    And in a society where we are all commodities, intimacy is inefficient.

    And it is entirely appropriate to type commodities, and entirely inappropriate to type persons.

    And most here see themselves as commodities to be typed. So why not you?

    And why not follow on and read someone's body language rather than relate to them as another person.

    But it is difficult to relate to another person if you see yourself as a commodity rather than a person.

    And you are right, it is a cultural imperative to treat ourselves as commodities. And that is why we type ourselves here with all the pride of obedient children.

    Peoples perception of reality differs, your perspective is not special nor does it gives you the right to force it upon other people. You type people as sheep who follows the conventional flow of society which contridicts the message of generalizing people as commodities as you are also generalizing, making you a hypocrite.

    No one is labeling anyone commodities; your arguement is base on Ethos which has no base or foundation other than yourself and people with similar mentality. Arguement based on Ethos is subjected to logical fallancy, therefore unrealiable within groups with different perspectives of reality.

    The girl in your avatar: her body language conveys a little bit of confusion or expectation (in the arms/shoulders, maybe eyes). Like she's being posed by the photographer, and she's saying: "Raise my hair/arms like this?" while her lower body looks like she hasn't been settled into that pose very long.

    Also, it's probably airbrushed, so who knows.

    I can't really give much specific advice on body language. I would imagine that "reading" is a skill, and all skills can be developed, but I've read some articles on the subject and it comes across rather stilted. It's very context dependent, as well.

    My interpretation above, for instance, is heavily loaded with what I imagine to be the scene - a model being photographed. But stripped down to the basics, all I have is "something funny (incongruent) about her eyes", "looseness in her elbow and wrist" and "fresh in her right leg." All of this is really based on feel more than careful examination. This could be interpreted in many, many different ways.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    Actually, I revise my statement.

    At first I saw "heavy" in her lower body, than I edited and said I saw "fresh" and now i see "heavy" again. She's shifting weight off her right leg to her left side, on her butt.

    Go people watching.

    Try to understand what's going on between people or two, at a bar, in the street, at school wherever.

    That's the best way, or read a body language book.


    Or do something like this:

    Trick question: who is relaxed?

    body language seems like something you have to determine on the fly, based on the context of the situation. formulas and systems to explain 'signs' seem silly, because they have no context.

    i fold my arms A LOT, but i do it when i am very happy and when i am very angry. i do it when i am amped up and excited (in a good way or a bad way), and when i am exhausted.

    The chick is the one relax. The dude also looks like he's faking his smile. Right?

    Just press the subtitles button on the remote control of life. It will translate all foreign languages into the one you understand best, and the translations will conveniently appear right above people's heads. You can even change the font size!
