Analyzing Body Language
Nonverbal communications often extend honest revelations about what a person is feeling concerning the conversation at hand.

However, through a careful analysis of body language, it is possible to know whether or not an individual is avoiding emotional leakage.

|Body Movement||My Interpretation of Body Movement||Actual Meaning of Body Movement.
