One of the most interesting studies of human behavior is body language. Body language is a type of unconscious and nonverbal communication that we all use, whether we realize it or not. Instead of words, we use our bodies, facial expressions, and movements to convey messages and information. For centuries, our ancestors managed to navigate their way through life and learn to survive by working in groups and communities together. They somehow effectively communicated their desires, needs, and observations with one another, even before the use of verbal language. The earliest man didn’t have a verbal or written language, but experts believe that they spoke with body language.
These mechanisms of ancient times remain with us even today and they provide a fascinating insight into our personalities and feelings. Take a look at the image below and choose which one best represents how you sit when you’re not thinking about it.
