Brainy Dose Presents: How To Read Anyone Instantly – 18 Psychological
Tips When we are meeting someone for the first
time, we are bombarded with information. It can be hard to work out what kind of person
they are. That’s why it’s important to understand
HOW we communicate. According to experts, 55% of what we convey
comes from body language, 38% from the tone of voice, and only 7% from what we actually
say. This means that when we meet someone for the
first time, we have to take into account these three factors – in addition to what a person’s
appearance may suggest. So, if you want to gain insight into someone’s
personality when you first meet them, pay attention to the following clues – starting
from the head down! Number 1 – Eye Contact They often say that the eyes are the window
to the soul. The key to knowing which kind of eye contact
someone is giving you, is to consider the context. For example, if a person literally can’t
take their eyes off you, it could mean there’s a romantic interest. On the other hand, when you look someone in
the eye, and they can’t bring themselves to look back at you, it’s a sign that they’re
either nervous, or they’ve got something to hide. That said, if you’re talking with someone
whose stare is making you squirm – especially if they’re very still and not blinking – something
is definitely up, and they may be lying to you. Number 2 – Eyebrows If you want to see how comfortable a person
is, take a look at their eyebrows! There are three main emotions that make your
eyebrows go up: surprise, worry, and fear. Try raising your eyebrows when you’re having
a relaxed casual conversation with a friend. It’s hard to do, isn’t it? If someone talking to you raises their eyebrows,
and the topic isn’t one that would logically cause surprise, worry, or fear, it’s a sign
that they’re feeling pretty uncomfortable. Number 3 – Lips These days, more and more people plump up
their lips with Botox injections. But it turns out, that those with lovely full
lips are deemed to be childlike and immature. These baby-faced people may also be judged
as naive and submissive. On the other hand, thin lips are deemed to
be distinguished. They are associated with intelligence and
determination. Number 4 – Smile When it comes to smiling, the mouth can lie,
but the eyes can’t. Genuine smiles reach the eyes, crinkling the
skin to create crow’s feet around them. People often smile to hide what they’re
really thinking and feeling, so the next time you want to know if somebody’s smile is
genuine, look for crinkles at the corners of their eyes. If they aren’t there, that smile is hiding
something! Number 5 – What They Say If you’re meeting someone for the first
time, and all they do is talk about their wonderful better half or praise their work
colleagues, chances are, they’re a pretty decent person themselves. Studies show, that the more people rate others
as being kind, polite, loving and well-mannered, the more likely they are to also possess these
traits. However, the reverse is also true. Anyone backstabbing and describing others
as manipulative and nasty, is more likely to have these traits themselves. It’s also possible that they have a history
of depression or personality disorder. Number 6 – Paralanguage Paralanguage is nonverbal communication such
as your tone, pitch or manner of speaking. Basically, it’s a fancy way of saying that
you need to pay attention to how someone says something. For example, if someone is answering you in
monotone, they’re most likely unattached to your concept and not interested. The use of sarcasm is another good example. When someone uses sarcasm, what the person
means is actually the opposite of what the words say. So, pay attention to the emphasis they put
on words and how they say it. It gives you a big clue as to what their true
intentions are. Number 7 – Side Glance People that are warm and open to meeting you,
will have their body facing you and they will look you in the eye. On the flip side, if you’ve just met someone
and they immediately glance away to the side, this is a subconscious body language sign
that means they are looking for an escape. Number 8 – Frequent Nodding Nodding is usually a sign that someone agrees
with you. But, exaggerated nodding may signal anxiety,
about approval. When you’re telling someone something, and
they nod excessively, this means that they are worried about what you think of them,
or that you doubt their ability to follow your instructions. On the other hand, frequent nodding could
also be unconscious gestures that are cues for the other person to get a move on – just
like when a person keeps looking at their watch or touches their car keys. Number 9 – Chin And Jaw When someone is trying to make a decision,
they tend to rub their chin. They might be looking up, down, or to the
side… It’s a sure sign that they are deep in thought. A clenched jaw is a sign of stress. Regardless of what the person is saying, this
indicates a considerable level of discomfort. The conversation may be heading toward something
they’re anxious about; or their mind may be elsewhere, and they’re focusing on the
thing that’s stressing them out. Number 10 – Posture How someone carries themselves can give you
some indications about their self confidence. For example, if someone is walking upright
with their shoulders back and looking straight ahead, that gives the indication that they
feel good about themselves and have confidence. However, if someone is slouching over and
looking at the ground when they walk, that gives a much different impression. It may not necessarily mean that they have
low self-esteem, but that’s the message it gives off. Number 11 – Rubbing Hands It is believed that the hands broadcast what
the head is thinking. When a person is rubbing their hands together,
generally it means that they have a positive feeling about something. People usually do this when they are hopeful
about something good coming up in the future, and they’re excited about it. Number 12 – Handshake You can tell a lot by a person’s handshake. Soft and flabby – and they are likely to be
submissive or a pushover. Too hard and crushing – and they are possibly
domineering types. The length of time is also important. Too long and it’s weird, but too short could
indicate some form of conflict. It’s possible that the person does not want
to make a deep connection with you. But, it could also mean that they don’t
have much time. Number 13 – Leaning In, Or Away If a person leans in toward you, it’s a
clear indication that they are interested in what you have to say. What you might not know, is that it’s also
a sign of respect. When people come closer and lean in toward
you during a conversation, it shows that they want to confide in you. It makes you feel trustworthy and valued. If someone leans back however, they show that
they are tired of the conversation, or perhaps they feel uncomfortable for some reason. Number 14 – Holding The Baby Ok…this might seem like a strange one, but
it’s good to know. If you’re meeting someone for the first
time, and they just happen to be a new mother, look at what arm they use to hold the baby. Studies show that happy moms tend to hold
their babies in their left arm. While stressed and depressed mothers usually
hold their babies in their right arm. Number 15 – Crossed Arms And Legs Have you ever had a conversation with someone
who crossed their arms or legs while you were talking to them? If you’re on a first date, or if you’re
trying to pitch someone a new idea, it’s not a good sign. Crossed arms and legs are physical barriers
that suggest the other person is not open to what you’re saying. Even if they’re smiling and engaged in a
pleasant conversation, their body language tells the story. Psychologically, crossed legs or arms, signal
that a person is mentally, emotionally, and physically blocked off from what’s in front
of them. On the same note, the direction of someone’s
feet are also quite revealing. A person that likes you, will have both feet
facing in your direction. However, if their feet shift toward the door,
it means they’ve had enough and want to leave. Number 16 – Shoes A person’s shoes can tell you a lot about
their personality. Apparently, we all make judgments about people’s
shoes, but studies show that they are pretty accurate. – Nervous people will have new or very clean
shoes – Amiable types will wear practical shoes – Calm people have an affinity for uncomfortable
shoes – And aggressive people wear ankle boots Just take a look at your own shoes. Does your personality type fit in with them? Number 17 – Overall Appearance How someone dresses and presents themselves
can say volumes about them. If the person has their hair in place, their
clothing pressed, and they show attention to style, they may be very detail oriented. Someone with a more casual wardrobe or “bed
head” might be creative, or just messy. And then take someone who looks unkempt and
smelly – they could simply be a really lazy person. Number 18 – Copying Body Language If you’ve never tried to read people before,
this is something you probably haven’t noticed. But, pay close attention to it in the future,
because when someone mimics your body language, it means they feel so good about you, that
they want to harmonize with you. It’s a sign that the conversation is going
well and that the other party is receptive to your message. This is done unconsciously – as no one walks
around with the intention of outright copying someone. But when we’re comfortable with people,
we have a tendency to do what they do. Some of us are pretty good at reading the
signs that people give off. While others are so bad, that they need the
other person to come out and straight-up tell them what’s on their mind. Reading people isn’t easy, but if you can
do it, it’s a fantastic skill to have. Of course, everyone is different, so interpreting
their words and actions may or may not always be accurate. But hopefully, with these tips, you’ll be
well on your way to becoming better at reading people. We want to know what you think! When you’re meeting someone for the first

  1. Thanks for watching! Remember, these signs are not set in stone! Everyone is different, so interpreting their appearance, words and actions may or may not always be accurate, and there are always exceptions. Please keep this in mind when reading people!

  2. Thin lips are mostly sign of repressed emotions personalities, not just development of intellect. Thicker lips are thicker when naturally because of tendency of the body of producing pleasure and and deep contact with their own ability of senses of the body letting emotions be and not just intellect.

  3. When you are a balanced personality you can see the good in others when it is there as well as when there is manipulative evil behaviors, you don't have to be extremist to have a sane personality.

  4. Looking down is also a sign of reflection of one's thoughts and experiences or sensations on the body, and in excess when you are sad and are trying to heal your heart before any other experience enters your exhausted state.

  5. Looking down is also a sign of reflection of one's thoughts and experiences or sensations on the body or reflection of something they just heard or perceived, and in excess when you are sad and are trying to heal your heart before any other experience enters your exhausted state. Or in deceiving people is because you watched a lie from them and their game is being exposed, in this case it is down and to one side without much reflection.

  6. High heels are not comfortable shoes, and ankle shoes are not sign of aggressive people, boots are comfortable and they are good shoes for expedition and exploration. They reveal that they walk a lot.

  7. In fact there is a lot of people lost in the identity field trying to copy others in a superficial way and social position and admiration, and some people try to manipulate and make think that they understand you by mimicking your body position to get something out of you that you may not agree with.

  8. The Communication Model by Prof Albert Mehrabian quoted at the start of the video that Body language is 55%, tone is 38% and words are 7% was researched in the context of comparing face-to-face communication versus over-the-phone communication. It is not used on its own alone so it is inaccurate to quote just the percentages.

  9. I disagree with most of these ,it gives the wrong impression about introverts,also i have plumper full lips,and i am berry intell u gent, or howeva you spel it.😎😘

  10. Impossible for anyone to think they know what everyone else is thinking, feeling or otherwise experiencing, the odds are extraordinary

  11. This is so not good to use it says rather than having a good conversation and good time you should see their eyebrows..legs…arms..lips…arms… other shit.☜ (↼_↼) .just make that clear stop learning mind reading on YouTube cause no one will give you the knowledge for free and believe me that's not necessary even!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!enjoy you life normally rather than being a maniac¯_(ツ)_/¯

  12. Well with myself i read the first few words that starts our conversation. And after that i feel that what comes after. Like do they continue to try and build on their examples on what they have done in life. Or even when it happened in there life. More is what way they say things about others. I might be different than most people in this field. Thanks for letting me leave my LOVE is beautiful'"!"'

  13. No one plumps up their lips with Botox injections. Botox is use to paralyze muscles. Fillers are used to plump up lips. You should correct this. It ruins the credibility of the video IMO. If you can’t do 2 secs of research to get your facts straight why would I believe anything you put out? Not trying to be harsh, just sharing thoughts.

  14. You' ve lost my interest at " Thin lips are associated with intelligence and determination" How many people of African origins were considered in this population sample?

  15. My ex husband had thin lips he was a jerk. That's like saying everone with blue eyes are selfish. You need to do more research.

  16. Hi if you�re reading this. Please remember That YOU have what it takes, whatever it takes, to do great things today . You will rise and shine exactly the way the sun does . Wishing you an amazing DAY

  17. Its my gift to read people I have done this all my life and I thought everyone did until I was asked to train sales people and I said its easy all you do is Read People dont you see? They didn't get it! Turns out I am an Empath.

  18. I almost didn't agree with nr. 5, you saying that people that see others as bad are bad people theirselves. That would mean I'm bad, but I'm righteous. But then you said they might have a personality disorder and now I agree. I'm a psycho/narcissist

  19. One detail made me laugh about the footwear subject….wearing ankle boots means you're aggressive 😂….I have LOADS of ankle boots, because they're stylish and keep your feet warm in cooler months, I mean maybe if you wear them in the height of Summer it may mean something….but seriously? 🤔😲😁😂

  20. That statistic about only 7 percent of communication is verbal.Surely not. Makes language, surely one of humanities greatest inventions seem pretty pointless.

  21. Bs Women because nowadays women want to keep up with the Appearance. I don’t go crazy but I do get Botox and filler‘s because I’m over 40 it doesn’t mean that I’m lying or manipulating that’s crazy. And rude to say

  22. Most people of color have full lips. So, we’re all immature and gullible? Not good, but good to know about this flawed belief system.

  23. crossing arms or legs doesn't mean that you are closed to the conversation or blocking it, is just a self hug, so you can feel more comfortable! saying lots of crap in these video, its based more in common sense than real scientific researches. but at the and you can learn some stuff

  24. The first time my husband or friend says I'm doing this because I'm not interested in what they are saying, I'm gonna mentally slap the piss out of you. Just playin!!!

  25. If a person is depressed does not mean any of those things when they do it try to read a depressed person very depressed I fit in that category

  26. Nice tips. Loved the video. Thank you for it. Though truly one can't read a person so easily. As those who are good at being fake,know how to be fake. These signs still can help a lot.

  27. When I cross my arms I am probably more open minded. It keeps my hands from distracting me or grabbing for my phone and helps me hold my posture.

  28. I do not like to shake hands.
    Some people pick their nose.
    Spiritually someone can impart demons by handshake and also take innate gifts from you this way, and I do not like holding hands unless it is someone that I know.

  29. Um. I have a naturally flat affect, so you can be my best friend, my crush, my mom or a total stranger, and I will look and sound the same.

  30. Been seeing swifthacking com every where I need there services too because I’m not sure if my husband is telling me the truth recently

  31. Been seeing swifthacking com every where I need there services too because I’m not sure if my husband is telling me the truth recently

  32. this video is just riddled with false information🤣🤣this guy definitely just read shit off the internet and not actually researched

  33. These are all wrong. Trust me, I am not a psychologist but I'm a master of both reading someone's mind and feelings and hiding or faking my feelings toward people. This is why I have never been in any trouble because I stay away from people who don't really like me being around with them. I secretly observe people's behaviour and attitude, it made me develop a skill how to deal with things like these, and people hide their feelings differently.

  34. Outdated and incorrect. information. Lack of eye contact may be due to cultural norms, etc. Saying thin lips has been equated to intelligence, is sneaking racial insults. Many ethnic people have full lips and are highly intelligent. Your making this comment is feeding negative, racist stereotyping. Ridiculousness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just stop.

  35. I loathe it when , in an intense conversation the person you are talking to immediately responds to an SMS chime , walks away from you and is straight into her / his cellphone ………..Grrrrrrr.. I just walk away .

  36. When I meet someone for the first time I watch their eyes. I see if they shift away or blink or stare excessively. Staring without blinking is normally a sign of domination or intimidation. I found narcissists do the aforementioned frequently to dominate.
