Body Language for Your Characters

One of my readers from OnLine Universities contacted me because she thought my audience might be interested in these body language tips for creating characters. I’m excited to pass this information on to you. Thanks, Allison Morris.

Whether you’re about to embark on a long-awaited college interview, a
nerve-wracking first date, or perhaps a highly-desired job interview,
making a good first impression goes farther than you may realize. The
amount of information that you perceive visually far outweighs what is
perceived by what you hear, and because of this, body language plays a
huge role in how people view you.  In fact, the little things you
do—with your hands, with your arms, your face, and even your feet—have
the power to present you as confident and engaged, or make you seem
nervous and uninterested. In order to properly express your level of
engagement in a conversation, from showing a date you’re into them, to
showing an interviewer you’d like the job, body language can make or
break how you’re perceived.  The following infographic offers you a
handy guide to some of the best tips and tricks in positive body
language.  Whether you’re prepping for a big event, or you’re simply
wondering what your current body language says about you, you’ll find a
helpful look into the complex world of how others perceive you, as well
as what their posture could be saying to you.
