Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers

As described by Selnick’s article:

Author and doctor of clinical psychology Carolyn Kaufman has released a one-page body language cheat sheet of psychological “tells” (PDF link) fiction writers can use to dress their characters.

THANK

This is helpful as both a writer and in real life.

Also I now know why I smile sometimes when I’m upset or afraid. I always kinda wondered why I did that.

(By the way, mirroring doesn’t have to indicate sexual or romantic attraction. It definitely can, but it can also indicate that two people are bonding in a platonic way. Basically, when people are mirroring each other, it means that they’re forming a connection, whether it’s romantic or friendship or whatever.)

I’ve learned that mirroring people is also a thing that some people try to do when they’re trying to sell you or convince of something. 

There’s also a full documentary on body language (which I’d still take with a grain of salt) here. It’s pretty interesting to see how people who’re trained to always show certain kinds of cues compared to those who aren’t.
