Body Language Expert Shares Her Secrets To Decoding People's True Intentions

Body language is so important. If a picture speaks a thousand words, then a human interaction speaks a thousand words a second. Don't quote me on that, though.

What I mean to say is, body language can tell us things without verbally telling us things. This is why I love when body language experts give us all their tips and tricks!

Of course, there are some really obvious, tell-tale signs of people being disinterested.

If a person is rolling their eyes, scrolling on their phone, or constantly looking away from you, it's safe to say they are not emotionally invested in your conversation.

Of course, on the flip side, there are many tell-tale signs of someone being *very* interested.

If they're continuously touching your arm, giving you intense eye contact, or giving your back a little rub, it's clear they're engaged in the conversation with you!

However, there are so many little nuances that are easy to miss if you aren't looking for them.

Enter TikTok user Patrica, who is helping millions of users on the popular video-sharing app decode people's body language.

Her dozens of videos have been super helpful for those who are interesting in learning what people are really thinking about them.

For example, Patricia says that if you're talking to someone and their feet are pointed towards you, they're engaged in the conversation.

"If their feet are pointed at you, signals that the pointer is interested in you," Patricia wrote.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, if their feet aren't pointed towards you, this can signal a desire to leave the conversation.

"If their feet are pointed away from you, can signal disinterest, discomfort or desire to exit the conversation."


In addition to feet, people's smiles can also be a tell-tale sign of someone's thoughts.

Patricia insists that people who smile only with their mouths/teeth are most likely faking a smile, while those who react with their whole face are showing a more genuine sign.
