It’s All About The Body Language

Interesting article on the Sky News site today about body language to look out for in the Leaders’ debate tonight.

For example; Brown “Brown has a habit of dropping his lower jaw, which may look like a yawn but is actually a sign he is breathing in deeply while under pressure… Cameron often licks his lips, which is a common response to stress… Liberal Democrat leader has a tendency to pull his lower lip up, making his mouth into an upside-down “u”, Dr Collett said. While this may look like a determined gesture, it is a defensive action he uses when he feels attacked”.

The quoted expert goes on to say “body language is unintentional it is much more honest and revealing than speech”, what on earth can they be suggesting with that remark!
