Body Language: Basics

Just to cover a simple basic in studying body language, the two types of posturing are described below.


  • Open posture

This is when the trunk of the body (which is the chest area mostly) is kept open and exposed, without any attempts to cover the mentioned area. This generally indicates friendliness, openness, and willingness.

  • Closed posture

This usually has a hunched over look, with the arms and legs kept crossed. This generally indicates a variation of either hostility, unfriendliness, or anxiety.

Well, basics have been covered. So…yeah…
