Body language & confusion

Body language & Confusion

When someone takes any of the two gestures shown below then know that he was confused. (scratching his head using his fingers at any point on the top of his hair or at the back of it)

When describing something to someone or when giving instructions watch out for these postures; if you saw them, then slow down your pace or elaborate more.


Another popular situation where the body language of confusion gesture happens frequently is at exams. Just take a quick look at some people taking an exam and you will certainly find one of them doing this gesture as a result of feeling confused.

Body language is not only used in understanding people but it can also help you attract someone to you. In my book, How to make someone fall in love with you i explained how you can appear much more attractive by doing few simple body language gestures that can make you appear more confident.

Don't underestimate what body language can do and do your best to learn everything about it.
