    Correctly understanding the signals that people give away with their body language is a useful skill to understand what they are really thinking, regardless of what they are saying. But research has proven that some body language is often misunderstood.

    The Eyes of a Liar

    Most people say that someone cannot look another person in the eyes and lie, but that is not true. It has been found that some liars have no problem staring someone in the eyes and lying.

    And what about people who avoid eye contact (接触)? Are they dishonest? In fact, nervousness and shyness can make people drop their eyes, even when they’re telling the truth.

    Eye Contact is Good

    Many believe that more eye contact is better. However, directing a fixed stare at another usually makes the other person uncomfortable. Eye contact that lasts a few seconds is best for showing attention and sincerity. Any eye contact longer than that may be regarded by the other person as rude or aggressive.

    Hands Behind the Back

    Some people mistake a person putting their hands behind their back when standing as a sign of power. This type of body language is actually not a sign of strength but that of someone who is not trustworthy. People like to see a person’s hands in order to know what they are doing with them. To gain others’ trust, a person should keep their hands front.

    Fast-Talkers Can’t Be Trusted

    Many people have been faced with, a fast-talking salesman who has tried to fool them into buying something. But fast-talk doesn’t necessarily mean someone is trying to bamboozle you. On the contrary, slower speakers who take too many pauses may be trying to make up details as they go along.

    Remember to take all things into considerationcultures, societies, personal habits—and use as much information as possible when judging another person based on his or her body language.
