*** How Can You Read What People Think? ***

A single word, by itself, has many possible meanings. In the dictionary, you’ll find several likely meanings for each word.

To know the correct meaning, you simply look at:

– other words in the same sentence and

– the context of the sentence.

Reading body language is as simple. A body language signal by itself can mean many things.

To know which meaning is correct, you need to look at:

– other signals that could have the same meaning (at least 2 or 3) and

– the context of the situation (environment and conversation).

This is the golden rule of reading body language.
