Body language of successful women

 

Body language of successful women: Having the ability to read body language like an expert  can help you in many situations whether professional, personal or even when it is dangerous. Understanding the cues or nonverbal actions that men and women take will allow you the ability.

 

Women have some specific traits that they have when it comes to body language and typically women are softer when it comes to their actions and what they do than what you would find with the body language of a man. This is not a judgment or a bad thing it just is what it is.  

 

The approach that women have when working with others is different than what a man might do and this ranges from the way that they walk up to a man or woman and what body language or nonverbal actions that they use.

 

Women have come far in the short span of the last 50 years just going back that far it wasn’t common for a woman to own a business or to be successful without a man. It’s a great and fantastic thing that it is more and more common to see successful women.

 

When it comes to the nonverbal signs of successful women there will be plenty of “maybe’s and “possibly” statements as there is no exact uniform body language of successful women or men just some common threads that may or may not happen as with any other reading of nonverbal actions.

 

As a general guide you will always want to baseline the man or the woman that you want to read the body language of especially if you are going to interact, you will not want to have some issues with the law of reaction.  

 

When successful women read your body language or nonverbal actions know and understand that you will be under far more scrutiny than you would be of that of a successful man, they will know what to look for.

 

Body language of successful women and confidence

Typically for all of the issues that have held women successful women back they will normally show good signs of confidence. The successful women will normally glide while they walk and it will seem like its even. The eye contact may be stronger than normal as successful women have probably been “eye checked” to see how serious they may be about their business strategies and or tactics and this may really be the case when a man doesn’t believe that “she” will be able to succeed.   Women can tell when a man or another woman lacks confidence as they have been approached for dating and can interpret the bad sigans and signals from the lack of confidence.

 

Body language of successful women’s hands and touching others  

Typically women take better care of their hands than what men do. You may notice that a successful woman has possible manicured hands and clean skin. A woman who is successful may or may not touch others but when she does it will be appropriate to make sure that the wrong message is not sent to the recipient especially if the recipient is a man. To put it simply a successful woman will know where to touch and where not to no matter what her hands look like.

 

Pay attention to how you touch a woman successful or not for them it will be a comfort zone issue. Know that the general rule is that it is ok to touch a woman after they have touched you in limited locations like particularly on the back of their arm from the shoulder to the elbow. Now for the guys who think that they are pick up artists or alpha males the men may think that these rules do not apply to them.

 

If you are a man or woman reading this women will be looking at your hands to determine what they can decipher about you without even talking.  

 

Body language of successful women’s clothing

You may find that successful women dress well, now that doesn’t always mean expensive cloths but you will find that most of the time successful women will make sure that their presentation of what they wear is acceptable to the other women and men around them.

 

If you get the chance to ask women who they dress up for whether its shoes, clothing, makeup, accessories and they will normally say that they way that they look is for other women to not be judged by them. This may not be the case for men, for the most part men only worry about what woman think (this is not a 100% for every man).

 

A successful woman will show through he nonverbal signs of her clothing that she is a force to be reckoned with especially if she is used to seeing the micro expressions of contempt.

 

Women whether successful or not will typically pay attention to how other women and men are dressed and make their decisions based upon what they see.

 

Body language of successful women’s accessories

You will find that successful women will typically know the limitations of what accessories should be worm in each occasion. You may find that “she” has bracelets, earrings, pendants on a chain or a ring that are tasteful but not excessive. This is not a 100% rule as some successful women make sure that you know she has money and the diamonds and gold will prove it.

 

You may find that the successful woman is carrying a nice purse and that her accessories have to match what she is wearing.

 

 

Body language of successful women’s shoes

Men typically don’t understand that for women shoes are an accessory that can make or break an outfit whether a woman is successful or not it is typical for women to pay close attention to shoes but not just theirs, but your also.

 

For some women dirty shoes are a deal breaker especially if you have not taken care of yours. That means that they better be cleaned and or polished and this could be for a man or a women. Women usually pay more attention to details and make their decisions based upon “gut instinct” more than what men do.

 

If you tell a woman that you are successful the shoes that you wear as a man or a woman may just give away whether you are telling the truth or fabricating your abilities.    

 

Body language of successful women’s nonverbal actions

Successful women will understand the rules of proximity even if they don’t know a name like “bell bubble”. Women can be more intuitive when it comes to dealing with others and may have a better sense of paying attention to what their body is doing so that they do not have to answer for it later.

 

A successful women will pay attention to your nonverbal actions to see if what you are saying will match up to what your body is saying or doing.

 

It is not ever a good idea to lie to someone but lying to a successful woman would be a mistake especially if they have kids because they are used to seeing kids make things up to not get into trouble. If she thinks for a second that you are not being truthful chances are you are done and will not get a second chance.  

 

Body language of successful women and double standards

Over the years with women being around business the unofficial rules have relaxed but there still is plenty of room to make changes. You may see successful women show the signs of frustration while dealing with others especially if there are double standards as to what they are doing and dealing with men. Women can touch other women or men but its not the other way around for women getting touched by men there is a double standard but that isn’t a bad thing.

 

 

Body language of successful women as times change

It’s a good thing to see women making their way more into the business world. A recent article said that 70% of all new businesses being started are by women. It will be interesting to see the types of changes that move forward as women become more successful and the culture of business changes. Hopefully the endeavors work out for the women and you will get more of a chance to read the nonverbal actions and signs of successful women in the future.

 

Reading the body language of anyone can be beneficial to your professional, personal and even dating life. Home study course can be used when you want and at your own pace.

Body language of glasses

Body language of glasses: When looking at the body language of men or women who wear glasses there is definitely some nonverbal communication going on whether they think so or not.  

 

When you look at a man or a woman you make some assumptions about them and how they will be or even their intelligence level. When you make these assumptions you will fall into the law of reaction.

 

Body language experts will share with you it only matters what the viewer thinks is going on and this is important to note as you will think certain things about people by the way that they dress, their accessories and even the way that they look physically.

 

Is that a bad thing…

 

Not really as we are a very visual society and part of that is making judgments about people and their nonverbal actions.

Body language of glasses and your thoughts

When you see or think of a man or woman with glasses what are some of your common thoughts about the person that is wearing them

  • ·         Smart
  • ·         Book worm
  • ·         Some may find glasses sexy
  • ·         Interesting
  • ·         Educated
  • ·         Mild mannered
  • ·         Persuader
  • ·         No thoughts or beliefs at all about the person

 

No matter what your first thought is there was a message sent by the man or the woman who has the accessory

 

Body language of glasses and location

When looking at the body language of men or women that wear glasses you will want to look at their location.

 

Are they at school?

 

Are they at work?

 

Should they have surgery to not have to wear glasses?

 

Do they have a lack of confidence in social situations because they are wearing glasses?

 

Sometimes men and or women will not wear their glasses to certain events because they think that they will be judged socially. In some of these instances they may wear contacts or the men or the woman may go without their glasses even if it could be a safety concern for driving or being out in public.

 

 

Body language of glasses a super hero article

For some people who are in the business of persuading others they may have frames that are real from glasses but the lenses are not prescription. Now at first this persuasion strategy may sound strange but wait a second.

 

Who was the smartest kid in school?

 

The kid with glasses…

Who was the kid you couldn’t hit or be mad at?

 

The kid with glasses…

 

Who had all of the smart answers?

 

The boy or girl with glasses

 

Sure they were made fun of but they had special protection and because they had glasses those boys and girls become men and women and now the have special powers

 

..because they are smart and have all of the answers and you can’t get mad at them

 

So in this case the glasses can be a prop that gives the wearer power but it’s also a disguise or these glasses give the man, woman, boy or girl confidence when they are worn and that helps make them become a super hero article.

 

When someone has glasses on you may see body language of confidence or you may even see a lack of confidence.

 

Whatever you see in the body language or the nonverbal communication of men or women you will want to take the time to base line the situation so that you interpret the signs and signals the right way.

Learning how to read body language can be fun even when interpreting what glasses mean for nonverbal communication.

Body language of mirroring

Mirroring body language: There are plenty of cool things that you can do when it comes to learning how to read body language or even interpret the nonverbal signs of men or women. One of the most important items that you can learn to help your persuasive abilities, best of all when done right you have some covert skills and it’s all nonverbal.

 

The term mirroring means that you would do nonverbally what the other person does:

  • ·         They woman touches her face, you touch your face
  • ·         She crosses her legs you cross your legs
  • ·         The man smiles you smile
  • ·         You yawn and then she yawns
  • ·         He touches you, you touch him back

 YouTube Preview Image

Wait it means that the mirroring and body language goes both ways?

 

Yes it does and you may have not ever noticed that salespeople may have mirrored you.

 

There is a point where you build enough rapport where they may start to follow you and then follow your lead (pace).

 

Body language mirroring of similar not exact

Mirroring body language can go wrong and that is for a few reasons and it makes your actions overt instead of covert:

 

Too similar too soon means that your reaction is too quick and that is a common body language mistake. The whole idea for your mirroring or copying is to be covert and not overt. When mirroring is done right the other person may or may not know that you are either pacing them or mirroring them.

 

Many times when people hear about or are shown mirroring they become too eager to get started and their movements are so quick that it isn’t really natural. These super skills that are supposed to help along with the process of rapport and or the persuasion process then end up hurting the person that they are supposed to help.

 

Just be patient when learning this new covert body language skill and you will be rewarded.

 

Body language of mirroring of similar

When mirroring a man or woman your bodies actions only have to be similar.

  • ·         When she touches her face you can touch you’re a few seconds later but do not touch it in the same exact spot
  • ·         When he crosses his legs you can wait a few seconds or a moment and then you cross your legs

 

 

Body language of pacing and leading

Pacing and leading is a strategy from NLP. Pacing means that you are following a man or woman. Leading would be when they are following you. Now throughout an interaction you can switch up the leader or the pacer.

 

You will know you are in good rapport when it goes both ways. At some moments it may be a body language strategy to give up some power and follow a man or woman and in some instances you may want to be in charge and have them follow you.

 

Body language of mirroring and touch

Now when it comes to touch there are common mistakes that you can make. In real time if you are waiting 5 – 10 seconds after someone makes movement for you to copy you will want to wait a few seconds longer if this action has to do with touch. You will have to practice this out with another man or woman that you know but you cannot tell them what you are doing to so that you can get the timing right. You can let the man or the woman in on your secret after you have practiced a few times. Mirroring touch has to feel natural or the situation will become very awkward.

 

Touching too quickly is also a common body language mistake.

 

Body language of mirroring and where to practice

How to learn body language made simple. You can practice mirroring body language anywhere and find it to be an effective use of nonverbal communication. You can just sit down at the coffee shop and watch a man or woman out of the corner of your eye and do a similar action and then when the man or woman changes their position you wait a few moments or even seconds and then do something similar but not exact. You may even want to watch the distance that you keep from the person when you make the touch so that you know where your proximics are or the “bell bubble”

 

Normally when someone hears about mirroring or wants to learn about it they make this common mistake for body language and that is to move too quickly.

 

As a side note while mirroring a man or woman out in public they may come over to you and ask questions like “Do we know each other”? This action is common along with them interacting with you somehow.

 

You can literally practice mirroring men or women’s nonverbal actions anywhere and get the same type of results. You may notice the next time someone is trying to influence you that they start to mimic or mirror your actions. You will be able to tell how good they are by their lag time or if they have just started by their ability to covertly mirror others.

Body language of facial hair

Body language of facial hair: There are plenty of reasons why men have facial hair. Sometimes you will see men with long or short beards, moustaches, lamb chops or anything similar. The nonverbal communication can vary from no reason to having a good purpose as to hide from someone or something. When looking at the body language or nonverbal communicaiton you will always want to base line the man or men that you are looking at.

 

There are a few things to look for and that is:

  • ·         How trimmed is it
  • ·         Is it done for fun or can you figure out a reason
  • ·         How does it help the man create an identit

YouTube Preview Image

Body language of facial hair and social norm: As of right now in the spring of 2012 having a beard is the cool thing to do. There are plenty of musicians right now who have short beards. The fashion magazines right now have men with facial hair. A few years back the cool thing to do was to have a shaved head and a goatee. For some this would be a way to help with maintaining or creating an identity.

 

Body language of facial hair authority figures: Sometimes you will see authority figures with facial hair whether it is a moustache or something similar to a goatee. There is the belief that a man with either of these items can be used to intimidate people becasue it may hide facial expressions. It is really common to see state troopers with facial hair. For firemen it is a tradition and there are some times where the guys in the firehouse have a competition. These facial hair competitions are also common in some militaries.  

 

Body language of facial hair and comfort: You may see men with a little facial hair and it may be for no other reason than that they didn’t want to shave. There is no reason to read into this. You may see this happen on any given day. For some it’s because they got up late, for some they may have skin that get irrigated easily and for some there is no reason they don’t have to.

 

Body language of facial hair and how to hide from society: While viewing some men with beards whether short or long they may be used as a guise to hide from society. Some may say that this type of using the facial hair to hide from life. Now there are some regions of the world where long beards are just a custom and it would be strange to not have one.

 

Body language of facial hair and religion: Now there are some religions that use facial hair as part of religious ceremonies and commitments in a case where a man uses his facial hair as o covenant there really isn’t a social reason why they do so. For some who do not understand or share these beliefs this may seem unusual

body language of negotiation

Body language of negotiation: There are plenty of times where you can use body language or nonverbal communications to your advantage. Negotiating is something that people do on a dialy basis but may not even notice that they are doing it.

 

You may use the body language of negotiation with:

  • ·         Your co workers
  • ·         Your significant other
  • ·         Your kids
  • ·         The neighbor you don’t really like
  • ·         When buying a big ticket item

 

Body language of negotiation with coworkers

Using body language while negotiating may happen by the way that you stand. When you are face front to a man or woman there is a certain value to the direction that you face. You may have one of your feet pointing to the door as if you are saying I have somewhere else to be. This nonverbal action may just put the pressure on your coworker to answer you faster for something you want.

 YouTube Preview Image

Body language of negotiation with significant others

While dealing with your significant other you may bite your lip when they ask for “permission” to go somewhere with the friend you don’t like. The biting of the lip or smashing of the lips together may say my mouth is saying “yes” but my brain and my heart are telling me “no”. You may even see the deep breath being taken almost to say “here we go again” without saying it.

 

In some instances the body language of negotiation may be slamming a door or an item down when a question is asked. Anytime that body language is used to relay a message it may be used as a negotiation ploy.

 

Body language of negotiation with kids

So your kid cut their arm and you don’t want them to panic so you use your body language to get them to not freak out. You may disguise your true feelings with a smile it may not be a true smile but you may act like its no big deal. You may have a difficult kid to deal with and you find that it is easier to make a request of them where you are almost talking through the house away from them, you are using your body language where it cant be seen and where theirs cant be seen so there is no reaction. Believe it or not you use negotiation and body language more than you would guess.

 

Body language of negotiation with the neighbor

You may have to deal with a difficult neighbor and you decide to take them a plate of cookies so that your hands are full so that you don’t use an offensive nonverbal hand gesture. You may even have the talkative neighbor so you decide to negotiate your time by having the conversation far away so they it is understood that you have things to do but it isn’t with them.

 

Body language of negotiation with salespeople

Now there are not many times where people feel like they have to negotiate but it is something that is done every day. The nonverbal communication while making sales is no different, you will use your body language in a way that you may not even know you are doing it. Remember that a salesperson who has been out in the field for a while will know what you are up to. So you wait for the “glance” or the facial expression” from your significant other just when the “closing question” is asked and you know who can be the bad guy and say “you have to think about it”.

 

The salesperson may use a lack of body language when you ask for a discount.

 

You may rub your face and breath a deep sigh when he or she counters.

 

The salesperson may just shake their head “yes” or “no” when you ask for a discount.

 

You may even get the end of the negotiation sign with body language and that is the handshake to signify that the dealing is over and you are both satisfied with the offer.

 

Body language of negotiation everyday    

You may have just found that you use body language of negotiation more than you thought of. You may even have found that you negotiate more than what you thought. Keep your eyes open today or tomorrow to how often that you use nonverbal actions to negotiate for something.

 

Body language of negotiation requires learning nonverbal communication

You could spend time and energy trying to find the best place to learn nonverbal communication or body language and not get the right product. The search is over learn how to read the body language signs and signals you have been looking for like the body language of a liar. Its all right here.

Body language of sadness

 

Body language of sadness: When looking at the body language of men or women there are ways to almost “read minds” by being able to understand and interpret the micro expressions of sadness.

 

When you are sad there are certain things that you will do nonverbally and there are specific things you will do with your facial features. The body language of sadness has some very specific things that happen with the face.

 

You can read the micro expressions of sadness by looking at:

  • ·         The eyes
  • ·         The mouth

 YouTube Preview Image

Micro expressions of sadness and the eyes

When a man or a woman is sad their eyes will droop from the top and while looking at them they will not have focus. It will almost seem like they are not looking at anything in specific or have nowhere to go. There is no sense of purpose about the man or the woman who is showing the signs and signals of sadness.

 

Micro expressions of sadness and the mouth

As you look at a person who is displaying the micro expression of sadness you will see their mouth turn down with a slight pull to the corners. This look will be like a slight pout. You may even see a little twitching when looking at the corners

 

Micro expressions and the rest of the body language of sadness

Any emotion will leak through other parts of the body when someone is living through them. Most of the time when a man or woman is sad you will see them moving slower than normal almost like they are in a sped up version of slow motion. You may see their arms folded as if they are holding themselves. There may even be more signs in the body language of someone who is showing the emotion of sadness and that may be they the man or the woman will look downwards consistently. Last of all you may see that the man or woman who is sad breathes slower than normal.

 

Its always a good idea to baseline a person who’s body language you are reading first. This means that you watch their actions and or their micro expressions for a moment before coming to a conclusion about what their body language is saying.

 

Learn how to read body language and micro expressions

No matter what micro expression that you want to learn how to read or what signs and signals of body language you find interesting you will want to see what you do when you yourself live through the emotion. Whether you want to understand any of the 6 mico expressions of:

 

It will help you to see what you may do in the same given situation.

 

In order to do this you may have to think about something that has happened to get you to this emotion, watch a movie or even talk to someone you don’t like on the phone.

Reading body langauge:Knowing your social value – part 2

Reading body language:
Learning how to read body language is a skill that compounds over time. Your
abilities to read nonverbal communication will become faster and more intense.
It may be that your skills for reading body language is not very advanced and
you may know the basics. When taking a look at pictures your skills may even
take longer in the beginning.

 

You may have learned about social value and what it means
when people see your non-verbal communication in real time.

 

There is a second part to learning about social value but
also living it. Self-control would be the missing aspect of social value.

 

Your ability to control yourself or the self-control factor is
always on display when in public or when transmitted on video and maybe past
the non-verbal area in audio form.

 

You are constantly being judged by those who are watching
you whether they are part of or associated with what you are doing.

 

You should be asking yourself:

  • Who is watching my actions?
  • What are others thinking?
  • Will there only be positive thoughts of my
    actions or can there be negative beliefs about what I am doing?
  • Can my actions be misconstrued?

 

These self-check questions are just guide lines to make sure
that you are being perceived as being seen as a positive light. Remember there
is always going to be a person who has to interpret what you are acting it.
This becomes even more important where you can lose value from others who are
watching.

 

Self control is a huge part of your non verbal or body language
communication and just for a second you are a salesperson and you do make
mistakes that would cause you to lose social value, do you think that you will
make the sale or transaction?

 

When was the last time that you were somewhere and there was
a person who was acting out of place? Was it uncomfortable? How did you feel
about the person? What thoughts did you assume about the person?

 

Every day when you are in public and you are communicating
your nonverbal communications are being judged as:

•           Positive
social value

•           Exempt
social value

•           No social
value or negative social value

 

One of the best ways to increase your body language skills
is to go to a bar or pub and watch people after they have a few to drink. The
people who have had a few drinks will let their guard down and not pay attention
to what they are doing like a person who is sober. Just remember if you decide
to drink you may be the person who is being judged if you do not control
yourself.

 

I would like to thank you in advance for your comments and

Reading body language: How to learn how to read the language of the body

Reading body language now: It seems that having the ability
to read nonverbal communications is all the rage right now. The reason is that
it gives you a leg up on sales, negotiations and just every other aspect of
life.

It seems that everyone want to take a course on the subject
to become some sort of body language expert to get on television.

For you to learn how to read body language now there are a
few tips that you can use almost instantly.

  • Start watching television for a few moments with
    the sound off to get the context of what the people are saying.
  • Go to a bar around midnight and watch how people
    interact at about midnight
  • Go to places where your language is not the
    common language used.

Reading body language comes easier when you understand the
nuances of the people around you. To use the body language tip of watching
television with the volume off, there is a second part. Your job is to take
notes and guess what is going on. You will then watch the show with the volume
on to see how close you were to the context of what you wrote down in your
notes.

It is super important that you actually take notes and not
just do them mentally. Yes you can shortcut your learning process of reading
body language but that will end up hurting your persuasive abilities in the
future.

If you go to a bar a few hours before they close the people
who have been drinking will be more relaxed and their body language will be
slightly more exaggerated. Your ability to detect what the non-verbal context
of conversations will be easier. As you learn how to read body language this
tip does make it faster.

Lastly if you go to a place where you do not speak the same
language like a restaurant or store you will be almost forced into reading into
what is going on around you. Your job once again is to guess the context of
conversations around you.

The first place to watch is the hands of the people who are
your subjects you hope to learn body language from. See how the people you are
watching use gestures to communicate, is the pace fast or slow? Is the stage or
area they are using small and within the areas of the body or are they huge and
way outside the frame of the body. The stage that people use can help determine
the context of the conversations people around you are having.

Lastly on word of caution when out and about to learn how to
read body language and that is to act normal and calm. Of you seem that you are
too interested in the people around you they may feel uncomfortable and start
to react to you. Your job is to be covert while learning this persuasive skill.
If you are watching the people or group too much and they feel uncomfortable
you may want to introduce yourself and explain what is going on. You would be surprised
to find out how interested the people will become about learning how to read
body language.

As always I would like to thank you for your comments and or
questions in advance
