How To Read Anyone's Mind?

We are bombarded with information when we meet someone for the first time. That's why it's essential to understand how we communicate. According to experts, 55% of what we convey comes from body language, 38% from the tone of voice, and only 7% from what we say. When we meet someone for the first time, we must consider these three factors in addition to what a person's appearance may suggest.

1. Eye Contact

They often say that the eyes are the window to the soul. The key to knowing which kind of eye contact someone gives you is to consider the context. For example, if a person can't take their eyes off you, it could mean there's a romantic interest. On the other hand, when you look someone in your eyes, and they can't bring themselves to look back at you, it's a sign they're either nervous, or they've got something to hide.

If you're talking with someone whose stares make you squirm, especially if they're still and not blinking, something is up, and they may be lying to you.

2. Eyebrows

If you want to see how comfortable a person is, look at their eyebrows! Three primary emotions increase your eyebrows: surprise, worry, and fear. Try raising your eyebrows when you're having a relaxed, casual conversation with a friend. It's hard to do. Isn't it? If someone talking to you raises their eyebrows, and the topic would not logically cost surprise, worry, or fear, it's a sign that they're feeling pretty uncomfortable.

3. Smile

When it comes to smile, the mouth can lie, but the eyes can't. Genuine smiles reach the eyes, wrinkling the skin to create crow's feet around them. People often smile to hide what they're thinking and feeling, so the next time you want to know if somebody's smile is genuine, look for crinkles at the corners of their eyes. If they aren't there, that smile is hiding something!

4. What They Say

If you're meeting someone for the first time, and all they do is talk about their excellent better half or praise their work colleagues, chances are they're pretty decent people themselves. Studies show that the more people rate others as kind, loving, and well-mannered, the more likely they are to possess these traits. However, the reverse is also true. Anyone backstabbing and describing others as manipulative and nasty is more likely to have these traits. It's also possible that they have a history of depression or personality disorder.

5. Paralanguage.

Paralanguage is nonverbal communication, such as tone, pitch, or manner of speaking. It's a fancy way of saying that you must pay attention to how someone says something. For example, if someone answers you in a monotone, they're most likely unattached to your concept and not interested. The use of sarcasm is another excellent example. When someone uses irony, what the person means is the opposite of what the word says. So, please pay attention to their emphasis on words and how they say them. It gives a big clue as to what their true intentions are.
