A person’s body posture can translate into all sorts of messages. This infographic from OnlineUniversities.com showcases several translations from certain body stances that people give off.

Vision is how most people take in information. By seeing a person’s body language, a person can determine how the other person is feeling. The infographic provides individuals with the basic meanings of certain body postures. Crossing the arms together indicates negativity, insecurity and defensiveness, while keeping shoulders square and arms apart means openness and honesty. Staring is also included in the infographic, which is also probably one of the trickiest social cues.

These guides may be common knowledge for some people, but there are individuals who still struggle with social interaction and behavior.
