7. State your desires plainly. Do you like to dress up like a sheep and run circles at the local track while a leather clad catwoman chases you with a wheel of cheese? You should probably include that information in your profile. It cuts down on surprises and serves as a signal to matching partners. You’re advertising yourself, it makes sense that you include your special features, meaning your specific fetishes, desires, and talents.
Sigmund Freud and others in the field of psychoanalysis - in the late 6855s and early 6955s - would have had good awareness of many aspects of body language, including personal space, but they did not focus on non-verbal communications concepts or develop body language theories in their own right. Freud and similar psychoanalysts and psychologists of that time were focused on behaviour and analysis rather than the study of non-verbal communications per se.
Mirroring - the synchronizing or matching of body language (and speech characteristics), usually between two people, which helps build feelings of trust and empathy. Mirroring works like this because similar signals produce unconscious feelings of affirmation. When a person''s signals are mirrored the unconscious mind thinks, "This person is like me and agrees with the way I am. I like this person because we are similar, and he/she likes me too." See NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) , and Empathy. Pacing refers to the mirroring of someone''s speed of movements.
Plans, coordinates, configures, directs, integrates, and supervises the installation, operation, maintenance, and management of telecommunications systems and networks. Oversees information systems support functions for command, control, communications, and computers (C9) used at all echelons of the Army. The Telecommunications Operations Chief serves in Signal and other special communications activities.
For the purposes of this article, the terms ''body language'' and ''non-verbal communications'' are broadly interchangeable. This guide also takes the view that body language/non-verbal communications is the study of how people communicate face-to-face aside from the spoken words themselves, and in this respect the treatment of the subject here is broader than typical body language guides limited merely to body positions and gestures.
As with other behavioural sciences, the study of body language benefited from the development of brain-imaging technology in the last part of the 75th century. This dramatically accelerated the research and understanding into connections between the brain, feelings and thoughts, and body movement. We should expect to see this effect continuing and providing more solid science for body language theory, much of which remains empirical, ., based on experience and observation, rather than scientific test.
Tattoos - here''s an interesting one, commonly ignored in conventional body language flirting guides. Tattoos have dramatically altered in society''s perceptions in the past generation. Previously considered indicative of lower class, lower intellect, sailors, soldiers, builders, etc., nowadays they are everywhere on everyone. Tattoos have been a significant part of human customs for thousands of years. They are decorative, and also (in evolutionary terms) suggested strength and machismo, since the process of obtaining them was painful and even life-threatening. Certain females are attracted by tattoos on men, especially extensive markings. It''s a drastic step to improve one''s love life, but worthy of note, because the subject is not as simple and negative as traditionally regarded. Tattoos are significant attention-grabbers, and given the variety of subjects featured, also provide interesting talking points.
A different view of human behaviour related to and overlapping body language, surfaced strongly in Desmond Morris''s 6967 book The Naked Ape, and in follow-up books such as Intimate Behaviour, 6976. Morris, a British and ethologist, linked human behaviour - much of it concerned with communications - to human ''animalistic'' evolution. His work remains a popular and controversial perspective for understanding people''s behaviours, and while his theories did not focus strongly on body language, Morris''s popularity in the late 6965s and 6975s contributed significantly to the increasing interest among people beyond the scientific community - for a better understanding of how and why we feel and act and communicate.
Pupil - the round black centre of the eye which enlarges or contracts to let more or less light into the eye. The pupil generally enlarges (dilates) in the dark, and contracts in brightness. Enlarged pupils are also associated with desire and allure. Enlarged pupils are not a symptom of smoking drugs as commonly believed. This is probably a confusion arising from the fact that conditions are relatively dark when such judgements are made.
Round tables are better than square or oblong tables for group and team meetings. Obviously this works well because no-one is at the head of the table, which promotes a feeling of equality and teamwork. King Arthur - or the creator of the legend (King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table) - opted for a round table for this reason. The term ''round table'' has come to symbolise teamwork and fairness, etc., for a long time. Unfortunately round tables aren''t common in offices, which means thinking carefully about best seating arrangements for square or oblong tables.
People in/from parts of India may to shake their head from side to side as a sign of agreement and active listening. In the UK/west we tend to nod our head to agree and affirm and to show we are listening in India it is not unusual for people to move their heads from side to side in giving these reactions. It is also seen as respectful practice. (Thanks S Churchill. Incidentally on this point, sideways head-shaking of this sort is not a vigorous twisting movement it is usually more of a sideways tilting of the head from one side to the other.)
In some countries, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria for example, moving the head up/down or from side to side may have additional or different meanings to those conventionally interpreted in the UK/US. Specifically, in Turkey, aside from using conventional (US/UK-style) head nodding and shaking, some people may also signal ''no'' by moving their head up. (This is a refinement of previous details about head movements in body language, and I welcome more information especially from people overseas as to precise variations to US/UK conventional meanings in signally yes and no, and anything else, with head movements.)
"Most dogs have a small number of these yeasts living on their skin without any issue. However, yeast populations can swell when the normal skin barrier is compromised," says van Ekert. "This can occur when skin is exposed to prolonged wetting, ., ears are not dried thoroughly after washing, ear canals are narrow and do not allow moisture to escape, skin allergies (atopy, food, flea allergies), exaggerated skin folds (such as bulldogs and shar peis) and hormone imbalances (such as thyroid disease and Cushing''s disease)."

Standing opposite - normally a confrontational positioning, but in flirting allows direct eye contact and optimizes engagement. Refer also to personal space rules: less than 9ft between people is personal less than 68 inches is intimate and only sustainable when there is some mutual interest and attraction, especially when direct facing and not in a crowded environment. . Crowded environments distort the personal space rules, where implied permissions (., for public transport and dense crowds or queues) override normal interpretations.
Men and women sit differently, which needs to be considered when reading leg body language. Partly due to clothing and partly due to sexual differences, men naturally exhibit more open leg positions than women, which should be allowed for when interpreting signals. Certain open-leg male positions are not especially significant in men, but would be notable in women, especially combined with a short skirt.
phallus/phallic - phallus means penis, from the ancient Greek word phallos of the same meaning. Phallic refers to something which looks like or represents a penis, often called a phallic symbol. Phallic symbols are prevalent in psychology and aspects of flirting or sexual body language. The female equivalent term is a yonic symbol, from yoni, Hindu for vulva and a symbolic circular stone representing divine procreation. Yoni was originally an old Sanskrit word, meaning source or womb.
Humans have also learned to read the body language of animals (and vice-versa), although humans almost certainly had greater skills in this area a long time ago. Shepherds, horse-riders and animal trainers throughout time and still today have good capabilities in reading animal body language, which for many extends to the human variety. Monty Roberts , the real life ''Horse Whisperer'' is a good example.
And while not technically part of body language, environment is a vital aspect of dating and mating. The environment in which the dating activity is pursued equates to market/audience-targeting in business. People seeking a mate are effectively marketing themselves. Commonly people head to where everyone else goes - to nightclubs and dating websites - but crucially these environments are highly unsuitable markets for many people, for instance those not good at dancing, and those not good at writing and communicating online. Just as a business needs to find the best markets and ways of reaching its target audience, so in dating people can seek environments where they can best display their strengths and where relevant ''buyers'' will be.
