Importance of body language
You may be interested to know that your body language can not lie! This is why many people who work in the Intelligence Office and the Ministry of Intelligence find out through body language that people are telling the truth or lying! So be careful: your body language is always more honest than the language of your words.
For this reason, in this article, we want to examine the importance of body language in different parts of people’s lives and tell you some extremely important points about it. In fact, in this article, you will be well acquainted with the following:
- Is body language acquired or innate?
- Why is body language important?
- The importance of body language in different parts.
One of the most frequently asked questions in the discussion of body language is whether body language is acquired or innate. When a person in a European country reacts to fear and we in Asia react to fear, does it indicate the inherent nature of body language or is it also an acquired aspect?
In answer to this question, I have to say that there is no doubt that part of body language is innate and we all do it the same way, but certainly, an important part of it is acquired and must be strengthened.
Many of the world’s politicians and dignitaries also strengthen their body language so that they can have the greatest possible impact on other people.
One of the things that are often overlooked in the discussion of it is that most people think that they should only strengthen their body language so that others can have a good understanding of it.
No, it is not; The first important message of body language is your message to yourself! For example, when you take on the body language of a depressed person, you send a message to your brain that I am not feeling well!
You can take full advantage of this and take on the body language of a strong and energetic person to make your brain think you are very energetic. Research has shown that body language is also very important and effective in people’s souls.
So the first important message of body language is your message to yourself.
Our second message is through body language to the audience in front of us. For example, you use your body language to convey to the audience that I do not trust you, I do not accept you, you are not a good person and you can convey many other messages to others through your body language.
The third message is the other party’s message to you. In any relationship you have, before the other person makes a point to you, you can find out through his body language what he wants from you or how he behaves towards you.
These are the important messages of body language that have greatly increased its importance.
Your body language is what puts the first impression on others. Sometimes even without saying a word, the other party decides how to treat you.
It is good to know that many transactions are formed or destroyed due to this one quality. So keep in mind that in the first few seconds there are a lot of judgments that your body language will have a strange effect on.
Body language is a universal language
When we say body language is a universal language, it means that when a person wants to show his fear, he does it in the same way in Iran and Europe or anywhere in the world. This means that even if the other party does not admit their fear, you can clearly recognize this from their action and movement of the body.
The important point is that it is not only a universal language but also a superhuman language! This means that not only humans in different parts of the world can talk to each other, but often animals understand our body language, and vice versa!
Also, one of the reasons that some animals can live among humans is that they understand our body language. You have probably seen that the same skill is usually used to train animals.
That is, the animal is made to understand that.
Body language is a universal and trans-human language. It is the first language used by humans.
This discussion has two extremely important and first-rate points;
The first is that when we say body language is the first language used by humans, it is because when a baby or child cannot speak, he or she understands what to do according to the body language of the people or others with his or her own body language.
The second point is that in ancient times when language had not yet been invented and people could not speak to each other, they used their body gestures to teach others what to do. That is why we say body language is the first language used by humans.
Understands and interprets verbal messages.
The most common use of body language is to better understand and interpret verbal messages!
Suppose someone says a lot of things, but you do not quite understand what he means! But when he uses his body language well, he can definitely tell you the truth much better so that you can understand his purpose more accurately and better.
This is why, for example, when you see someone who is not worried, even if he says that the worst possible things have happened to him and that he has been cheated on, it is still hard for you to believe it.
So if it is not body language, you can not understand well what others are saying or explain to your audience what you really mean.
In the next section, we want to name some of the most important and practical parts in which body language is of great importance.
The importance of body language in the family
The first place where body language is so useful to us is the family. For example, when parents want to counsel their child, they can use their body movement to find out if their advice has affected their child.
Or parents can understand their children’s honesty well, and they can even discern their children’s feelings and see how they are at any given moment. That is, they can better understand when their children are worried, when they are scared, and when they are happy.
There are certainly many other examples in this and other areas of body language that you can also look at and see what other uses body language has.
