I would not trust someone who has their hands behind their back when talking. What are they hiding?

People may feel relaxed when they sit with their legs crossed. I used to be.

Leg position may have much to do with spinal issues...a stance that relieves pain

I love talking to people but seldom look them in the eyes. The cross legs are not true but about 50% of the time.

many aspects of body language are cultural so one should consider that before jumping to conclusions, some are gender oriented as well. for instance, in general, men nod to show agreement agreement, women nod to show they are listening but it shouldn't always be construed as agreement. Also sometimes folded arms over the chest can signal disagreement or anger, other times the person is just cold. So net net, pay attention to words and body language and look for when they are not in harmony with each other.

If a person's eyes look like a couple of glazed donuts and their smile looks like a rictus grin, avoid them if you can.

it is not only in indigenous groups, many cultures use eye contact rules that are different from the 'rules' in North America. The most Fluent Liar I know makes excellent eye contact that is how you know not to trust them. There is a lot of truth in body language but it is much more nuanced than these suggestions which all have a suggestion that the action may have another explanation embedded in them .

In many indigenous North American groups, eye contact indicates disrespect and often hostility.

marciebannister. Yes. Isn't 85% of our communication non-verbal?

I worked with the crimally insane for the last 7 years of my nursing career. And it's amazing how little people take non verbal communication and pay attention to it. It speaks volumes!

I've found that when someone can't look you in the eye, it means they are telling lies to get out of a situation. Saw that with my step daughter when asked if her homework was done and she'd get a sly smile also. Sometimes if I'd look at her intensely she'd look up then duck her head, glance again, duck the head until she'd tell me to stop staring at her. I'd ask her if she was telling me the truth and then she'd come clean, apologize for lying and do her homework.

Thank you for sharing your observations. Most communication is non verbal especially with the eyes. They are the windows to the soul. Be observant.
