Body language of contempt: When reading body language of the face there are 6 basic micro expressions that can be examined to understand and interpret the emotions of a man or woman that you are viewing.
While reading the body language of others it is telling to see where their emotional status is. One of the quickest and most effective ways of interpreting the emotions is to understand what the facial expressions mean.
Understanding what contempt is really helps as to understand what another person thinks of you. When a person has contempt for you their body language or nonverbal communication will show a half smile. Now this nonverbal cue may last less than a half second or last for a few seconds.
So what does the body language of contempt mean?
There are a few words associated with contempt:
- · Disgust
- · Disregard
- · Anger
- · Hatred
- · Lack of respect
It is important to know when a man or woman shows the nonverbal actions of contempt because it will show you the beliefs that they have of you or whatever is going on at that moment.
It may be that it’s a
- · New person to a group
- · A business idea
- · A problem with a relationship
Contempt signaled in any situation is not a good thing especially if you are in a relationship with the man or the women, if you are a figure of authority or if you are a salesperson this body language signal can let you know exactly where another person stands when they think of you or an idea.
There are good things about micro expressions and that is that they are very telling at the moment that they happen and they give away the position of the person who has the feeling and most times that person does not know that they are making the micro expression nor do most people have significant control over them.
The nonverbal signs and signals of contempt
Remember if a man or woman has contempt for you they will use a half smile on either side of their face. There are times where the person will look at you or they may even try to look away to hide the feelings and emotions that they have for you.

In any way contempt is shown the relationship has problems but a person who has a blatant disregard for you may give you more trouble because if they know what they are doing they are flaunting it in your face and may have more trouble in mind.
