Our body language conveys a lot without our knowledge. Effective body language is very significant as a means of non-verbal communication. When used in an appropriate manner, our body language can help us to overcome many issues in our professional and personal life as well.
Our face expresses a lot more than we can imagine. Reading facial expressions can reveal more about the person than you can ever imagine. Only an observant person can ever notice a slight hint of mischief in the eye! Therefore understanding the silent language of the face is very important in various spheres of life.
This would help us in selecting the right partners or even assist us in gauging people in our professional life. Our face reflects our personality and when it comes to first impressions, an expressive face and an optimistic body language will help us to achieve our desired goals.
Reading and Understanding Facial Expressions
How often has such an incident happened with you? You may have finally broached a very difficult topic with your family member and you may have felt he/she has not been genuine with the answers. Wouldn't you then wish for a way to read a person's mind?
Well, reading facial expressions is not really too difficult, a stiff and firm mouth with a reluctant attitude can reveal the person has not completely agreed with you although his/her words may mean the opposite. On the other hand, if the face is relaxed and the body language seems to be at ease, you can rest assured the person means what he/she is saying.
How often have we understood what the other person is trying to convey without really saying a word? Think back about certain incidents that shaped your day and you would know how expressions of the face are used to convey feelings unintentionally. Different parts of our face can reveal various emotions.
Reading facial expressions is therefore very important to know and understand a person better. It would help us develop better relationships and be with people who are genuine from within.
Facial expressions can however be deceptive at times when people completely master the art of controlling their mind. This may prove to be useful in professional life when one need not always express what he/she feels.
However, it's always good to be with people who express themselves freely, through words as well as body language. It would only help you to establish a better bond with the people you care for in your life.
