Ok folks, do we have any people who has knowledge kinda like Tim Roth's character in Lie to Me on here? I've been studying body language and facial gestures for a few weeks now and am learning little by little. But I'm having a heck of a time deciphering body language in a certain context. I work at Verizon supporting IT equipment for several retail stores in this area. I have about 100 end users, many of whom are fairly attractive females. Since I have a rapport with my users, I do talk to some of them on a regular basis, almost to the point of flirting with them (the women that is). I was talking to one of them this morning and she assumed a specific position when talking to me. Now that's not special by itself. However, she is the 4th girl that I've talked to in the past three months that has assumed that very identical position. The stance being, they are facing me, with one foot about a foot directly in front of the other (with the front foot pointing towards me) rocking a bit back and forth, with their arms loosely folded under their rack. So what's confusing me is that the crossed arms is usually a defensive/standoffish gesture. So are having your feet crossed. But facing someone is a good sign. It indicates you have their full attention. Now, keep in mind, all four of these girls are fairly attractive, and while I'm not out to date any of them, they do seem to like me and like talking to me otherwise and the feeling is mutual. Two of the girls, including the one this morning actually came up to me and said 'hi' first. So I don't think they were assuming the 'go away, I don't want to talk to you' stance. Any ideas? Considering their arms were folded under their breasts and not over them, do you think the arm crossing is a comfort gesture in this context, rather than a standoffish one?
