Body Language

Non-Verbal Communication

Slide4 l.jpg

  • What people are saying (ie. the words they speak) and what they are really saying (their intentions, emotions, hidden agenda's etc.) can be very different;

  • Some people lie.

  • Some people unconsciously oppose what they say

  • Some people pretend to be what they're not

  • Some people don't talk at all (but their body speaks volumes!)

Body language and intent l.jpg

Body language and Intent

  • Voluntary/Intentional movements - Usually called "Gestures". These are movements you intended to make, like shaking a hand, giving the finger, blinking with one eye...

  • Involuntary movements - Usually called "tells", but "ticks" also fall into this category. Any body movement you have no control over falls in this category. While technically not a body movement, sweating also applies.

Tone of voice and intonation l.jpg

Tone of voice and Intonation

  • Pitch of voice - high voice, low voice, intonation.

  • Loudness - Everything from shouting to whispering.

  • Breathing - Slow, fast breathing, shaky voice.

  • Your forehead is relaxed, and may show light wrinkles as you eyebrows are lightly raised.

  • The corners of the mouth are curling up, sometimes showing the teeth. If someone's laughing out loud, the mouth is open. The cheekbones are lifted.

  • Your eyes show wrinkles in their outer corners (when 'the eyes don't smile', these wrinkles are absent; it's a telltale sign that someone isn't really happy).

Anger l.jpg


  • Your forehead is pushed together in a frown, pushing down the eyebrows. Oftentimes your teeth are showing, with snarling lips and depressed corners of the mouth.

  • Your nostrils are standing out and the nose is wrinkled.

  • The eyes are bulging out, putting tension on the eyelids.

Sadness l.jpg


  • The corners of your mouth is depressed, often with a shaking lower lip. The eyebrows are squashed together, and the forehead is frowning.

  • The skin around your eyes is pulled in, and the eyes are tearing up (or even crying).

  • Wrinkles are forming from the nostrils to the corners of your mouth.

Scared l.jpg


  • Eyes are getting big, and the eyebrows go up and then down again.

  • Your lips are stretched outwards, and your lower lip is pulled down.

  • Your skin will look pale, as blood is retracted from your head, and sweat can form on your forehead.

Surprise l.jpg


  • When you're surprised, your eye brows are pulled up high, making your eyes wide open, and your forehead wrinkled.

  • Your mouth opens as your jaw muscles relax and your lower jaw drops.
