8 lessons from the book "What Every Body Is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed-Reading People" by Joe Navarro:

1. The Importance of Nonverbal Communication: Over 60% of communication is nonverbal. Understanding body language is crucial for interpreting true intentions and emotions.

2. The Feet and Legs Reveal True Feelings: People often overlook the legs and feet, but they are honest indicators of where someone wants to go or how comfortable they are.

3. Comfort vs. Discomfort: Identifying whether someone is comfortable or uncomfortable can reveal a lot about their feelings and intentions. Look for signs like crossed arms or leaning away.

4. The Power of Pacifying Behaviors: People touch their faces, necks, or other body parts to soothe themselves when stressed or anxious. These behaviors can indicate discomfort or deception.

5. Mirroring as a Sign of Rapport: When people are in agreement or feel connected, they often subconsciously mimic each other’s body language. This is a positive sign of rapport.

6. Microexpressions and Hidden Emotions: Brief, involuntary facial expressions can reveal true feelings that someone might be trying to hide. Learning to spot these can be incredibly insightful.

7. Reading Hand Gestures: Open hands with visible palms generally indicate honesty and openness, while hidden or closed hands might suggest discomfort or deceit.

8. The Influence of Cultural Differences: Be aware that body language can vary significantly across cultures. Understanding these differences is essential for accurate interpretation.
