What Does A Half Smile Mean?

Body Language Cues that Tell You How He Feels
Here is a link to a story I did with Cosmo. They have photos and then my body language tips.

There's a good chance this guy just wants a no-strings fling. "A sneerlike grin is an indication that he's not being sincere with you," points out body-language expert Patti Wood. "It's a split-face gesture: Each side of his face is telling a different story."

Body Language Signals that Make You Look Approachable.

Pay attention to your walk. If you take a close look at the way you walk in shoes, you may find that some of your shoes make you walk duck-footed with your toes going outward. Toss the shoes. If you are a woman and are gasping with disbelief at such sacrilegious recommendations keep reading. I don't care if they are really cute and you got them on sale at DSW, get rid of them. Ditto for shoes that make clip clop sounds as you walk. That means most clogs and heavy flip flop shoes. Remember ducks make cute carton figures but not attractive approachable women or men.

به گوش می رسد. اما متخصصین رشته زبان اشاره (body language) معتقدند نوع عطسه کردن نشانگر شخصیت افراد است.

بر اساس گفته پتی وود (Patti A. Wood) یکی از این متخصصین بیشتر افراد در طول عمرشان روش عطسه کردن مختص به خود را دارند که با شخصیت آنها مطابقت دارد. این متخصص بر اساس تحقیقی که انجام داده عطسه کنندگان را به چهار دسته کلی تقسیم کرده است:

۱- افراد خوب و مهربان

۲- افراد درست و قابل اعتماد

۳- افراد کاری

۴- افراد مشتاق و موثر

افرادی که فقط یک عطسه میکنند در زمره افراد خوب و مهربان هستند این افراد خون گرم، مفید و حامی دیگران می باشند.

افرادی که با صدای بلند عطسه میکنند در زمره افراد کاری به شمار می آیند ، این اشخاص سریع العمل ، قاطع و در نهایت رهبران خوبی هستند.

اشخاصی که همیشه به هنگام عطسه کردن با دستمال جلوی بینی خود را میگیرند افراد درست و قابل اعتمادی هستند این افراد معمولا با دقت، درستکار ، و بسیار منطقی میباشند.

آخرین گروه افرادی هستند که با صدای بسیار بلند و خشن و به دفعات عطسه می کنند در زمره افراد مشتاق به شمار می آیند که این اشخاص دارای جذابیت اجتماعی می باشند و توانائی ایجاد انگیزه و تاثیر گذاری بر دیگران را دارند.

بنا به گفته دکتر فردریک لیتل (Frederic Little) پرفسور دانشگاه بوستون یک الگوی ذاتی برای روش عطسه کردن انسانها وجود دارد که به احتمال زیاد ژنتیکی و موروثی میباشد.

Celebrity Smiles Reveal Their DISC personality

Body language is a powerful thing. Apparently it's so powerful that how you sleep with your significant other in bed says a lot about your relationship. The Nest interviewed two professionals -- author Evany Thomas (The Secret Language of Sleep), and Patti Wood, a body language expert -- about your sleep style decoded.

Four major positions and what they mean:

1. The Football: Both on your sides facing each other with one foot touching.

Just like touching a foot is enough contact for football players, you and your honey don't need to be around each other all the time to connect. You make the most of the time you do have together.

2. Classic Spoon: Full front-to-back contact, with one person tucked into the other.

You are a traditional couple -- the protective one on the outside and the sensitive one on the inside.

3. Tetherball: One of you on your back with a single hand on the other person.

You're both strong-minded and willful people who find ways to compromise. A heated discussion can lead to romance.

4. Cliff-Hangers: Sleeping on opposite sides of the bed with your backs to each other.

You prove that opposites attract. He likes sports and you like the opera, but you find ways to meet in the middle. Though there may be a rift in your relationship, practicality trumps all.

The best sleeping partner combos:

•The Spaghetti Noodle: You sleep on your side with your arms out and are mellow + The Soldier: You’re so go-with-the-flow, you need a little structure!
•The Crab: You lie face down, like you’re making out with your pillow, and tend to be stubborn + The Spaghetti Noodle: You need someone loose who'll bend around you.
•The Soldier: You sleep on your back with your arms at your sides + The Womb: A womb sleeper’s softness will soothe your rigid side.
•The Womb: You curl up and are as thoughtful as you are cozy + The Crab: You sleep in a tiny ball, and a Crab isn’t into snuggling.

Do you think these are accurate? What's your sleeping style?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Us Weekly's Body Language "Expert" Analyzes TomKat on Anniversary
Happy One-Year Anniversary, TomKat!


To celebrate their November 18, 2006 nuptials, Us consulted a body language expert to analyze the evolution of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' relationship:

June 23, 2005: War of the Worlds premiere, New York - Just six days after their engagement (and two months of dating!), body language expert Patti Wood tells Us: "She's tightly holding him, rather than being relaxed, which indicates that she would prefer more space." Still, Wood says, "she does have serenity on her face."

June 27, 2005: War of the World premiere, Los Angeles - "The hand clasp on her leg shows intimacy and comfort," Wood says. "She's leaning in and she has her hand relaxed and wrapped around him."

May 4, 2006: Mission Impossible III Screening, Los Angeles - Just two weeks after Suri's April 18 birth, Wood says new dad Cruise is, "holding on a little bit tighter and his shoulder is really pressing more into her. The fatigue in their faces shows that they're exhausted."

November 18, 2006: Their wedding, Lake Bracciano, Italy - "They're both holding on equally to each other," Wood says. "She is fully pressed in to him, which shows that she can lean and depend on him." By wrapping his hand around hers, Cruise says he will "take care of her."
