Can you learn body language? - MM - 04-16-2022 12:29 PM

Is it possible to learn to read body language and facial expressions? I know some but really it is a problem for me.

I was just reading an article about aggressive body language. I knew some of the gestures. Now I know why someone wagging her index finger at me everyday bothers me so much. Mostly she just wants to show dominance over me when most people would just think it was rude.

Reading body language would come in handy during the mask mandates during these times

The eyes are supposed to convey much info. I usually watch people’s mouths when they talk because that somehow helps me to understand what they are saying and usually fulfils the need for faking eye contact.
