  • Former FBI agent and body language expert Joe Navarro breaks down the various ways we communicate non-verbally. What does it mean when we fold our arms? Why do we interlace our fingers? Can a poker player actually hide their body language?

    This state does not deserve people that serve in positions. Or in the military, etc. But by all means no one would wear, what they have to wear, what is available. Or do without basic needs, dentures. Teeth, etc. Hair care. I literally cried, when I got my Paul mitchel again. After yrs of being forced to live with suave hair care. You cannot possibly imagine the abuses. Or buy a make model of a vehicle you would want to buy? That is laughable in this extremely abusive, state.

    Financial controls, are the foundational basis, to the very fact that, Ohio loves to control lives. Hates disabled people. Loves to abuse disabled people. Etc. This is the most disgusting state, most cruelty. Etc.

    Ohio absolutely, makes sure you will not have needs. O the ability to have the type of clothes you would choose to wear, etc.

  • Marion Wilson

    Not everyone chooses, the clothes they wear. Especially if they live in a state like Ohio. Or if they have their basic needs. Etc.

    Dumbest spy ever lol. I was born in eastern-europe and that is indeed correct 100% but it is a very stupid way to be found out, shows lack of cultural knowledge of the country you are trying to spy in. I guess could be a force of habit or something.

    I involuntarily twitch as a side affect of medication. If you do not know this, is the twitching going to be some kind of deterrent to reading body language. What about a person who has cerebral palsy and does not have control of his movements?

    Finally, a video actually worth watching. I feel soooo validated right now. A coworker was trying to get me fired during a conversation with our manager. I had perfectly logical reasons for doing each thing she accused me of. Finally, exasperated, she said, "Well look at her! Her arms are closed (I was "self hugging" during the entire conversation). That says right there that she is closed [to taking direction]."
    What she didn't know was that right before she joined the conversation with our manager, I had remarked how cold it was and then covered my arms to keep warm. He and I were having a pleasant conversation and I was cold. She made herself look like a fool.
    Not only did I not get fired, but when she tried to go over the manager's head, he wrote a glowing report about me.
    Crazy chick ended up losing custody of her child years later. #karma.
