8 attractive body language to avoid
There's always that one person who seems to fascinate everyone at every event. Her smile brightens the room, and people flock to her for conversation. You can't help but be drawn to her. She may not be the most attractive person at the party, but there is something vibrant and welcoming about her.
What is her name? How does she manage to be so appealing to both men and women?
The answer isn't in her sartorial choices or her humorous remarking (although those are important, too). Her allure stems from her demeanor. Want to grab the attention of the crowd the next time you go into a party? You'll be on your way to becoming instantly irresistible if you follow these ten suggestions.
1. Maintain a relaxed and open posture.
Having good posture, whether you're standing, sitting, or walking, not only makes you look attractive, but it also makes you appear taller. If you've been slouching for a long time, there are a number of simple exercises you may do to improve your posture. Using a full-length mirror to observe oneself is also beneficial. Every day for around 5-10 minutes, sit, walk, and stand in front of it until you acquire the proper posture. This translates to
Straighten your neck and relax your shoulders.
Back of the shoulders
Knees slightly bent, abs in
When you've learned proper posture, you'll notice that you're more at ease and confident when you're in front of others.
2. Make an eye-to-eye smile.
One of your most powerful tools for making yourself likeable is your smile. A real smile should reach your eyes, causing small crinkles to appear on your face. This indicates that you are actually content, and nothing is more appealing than a person who smiles sincere. Smiling reduces stress and can improve your degree of achievement, according to research.
You may improve your grin simply by practicing it every day, believe it or not! Take a deep breath, hold it, then slowly release before smiling in front of a mirror. You'll notice that you're more at ease and that your grin is genuine. Try it a few more times until you're comfortable with it!
3. Mirror small movements in a subtle way.
Mirroring is a body language technique used by successful people to build relationships with others. It should make you more likeable without any effort if done correctly. It's in our nature to respond favourably to people who are similar to us. Even before delivery, a baby's body functions (such as heartbeat) are in sync with the mother's.
Observing the movements of the other person is the first step in good mirroring. Is he taking a step forward? Is he cross-legged? Nodding? To swiftly build a bond of trust, reflect these actions with your own body. This strategy has been validated in a variety of experiments. So keep a watchful eye on your guests at your next gathering. Follow in their footsteps to connect better with any person in the room.
4. Apply a light touch to your forearm or shoulder.
Don't underestimate the impact of a friendly touch on the arm or a quick slap on the back. These, unlike words, are generally understood and may convey a greater amount of information. If you genuinely like someone, for example, you could casually touch their arm throughout a chat. This, like mirroring, helps you create rapport with new people. But be careful not to overdo it! It only takes a little tap – don't overdo it!
5. Make eye contact with the person in front of you.
Making eye contact is without a doubt one of the most potent body language tools in your arsenal. However, if you do it incorrectly, you will appear scary. When you combine this with tip #2, you'll have a winning combination. When you make eye contact, smile to instantly make yourself irresistible. Ten seconds is a safe time limit before looking elsewhere. Otherwise, you will trigger a person’s defense mechanism and make them feel uncomfortable.
6. Face the person with your body.
The “big baby pivot,” as it is often known, entails rotating your entire body towards another person. The way most people focus their attention to a baby gave rise to the name of this body language technique. When meeting someone new, make sure to tilt your body towards them and give them your complete attention. This sends the impression that they're unique and that you care about them. In turn, genuine interest in another individual makes you very irresistible!
7. Make gestures with your hands open.
The handshake we use now was originally used to prove that you weren't concealing any weapons. That's why we suspect those who don't expose their hands.With this in mind, use gestures to make you the most memorable person in the room.
When making a list of points, use your fingers.
You're determined whether you make a solid fist.
Make a broad motion to signify "everything."
When discussing a personal experience, place your hands on your chest.
When using hand gestures, keep your audience in mind. Remember that in another culture, one sign can signify a lot of different things, so take cautious!
8. Take a few seconds to pause.
This is a subtle yet powerful aspect of your body language. When given a difficult or intimate question, you can use brief pauses throughout conversations or speeches (this gives you enough time to think of a good answer)
