Good link on Body Language

Here's a link which gives a list of body language signals and what they mean. Keep in mind, of course, that these are culturally defined and may differ in different countries or contexts!


  1. Thanks, Juliette. This will be useful for a class I teach on body language :).

  2. Thanks again. For me this is especially interesting for how it would apply to alien physiology. How does body language emerge from a structure and environment unlike ours?

  3. Great post!

    I also wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a sylish blogger award. You can pick it up here if you like.

    Thanks for the great info!

  4. You're entirely welcome, Margaret.

    Porky, I agree, the issue of alien body language is interesting. When I work with it, I generally try to pick only one or two things that clearly contrast, because body language is one of those things that helps us understand people, and I generally like to encourage my readers to perceive my aliens from an insider perspective.

    E. Arroyo, thanks so much for the nomination! I now have to go and do some blog reading in order to accept...
