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.
