How To Learn Sign Language

The 3 BEST Body Language Signs For Making Friends

welcome to lesson 6 of the beefriend
course in our previous lesson we talked about the three reasons why learning and
paying attention to body language is so important in today’s lesson I’m gonna
show you the three body language signs you need to use in all of your future
interactions these three so-called friend signals are the three most
powerful signs if used correctly will make others like you a lot more upon
meeting you and also make you seem like a much more approachable and trustworthy
person so let’s get started we’re gonna start off with the one sign out of these
three that you probably already know which is the smile smiling is the most
powerful friend signal and this is for a very good reason see when we smile our
brain actually releases endorphins which are chemicals that make us feel good and
what’s interesting is that people who see your smile will also release
endorphins in their brains so when you’re genuinely smiling during a
conversation both you and whoever you’re interacting with will feel good but we
have to pay close attention to the word genuine see the truth of the matter is
there are many moments in our lives where we force ourselves to smile during
awkward conversations working retail with mean customers and dealing with
terrible bosses we often put on a fake smile to pretend that everything is
a-okay but the problem is it’s pretty easy to tell the difference between a
fake smile and a genuine one if you smile incorrectly the fake way people
will think you are faking your emotions and they will have a hard time trusting
you it’s gonna have the opposite effect of what you want so it’s very important
that you learn how to create a genuine smile on command correctly a genuine
smile looks something like this when someone is truly happy and they smile
bags will appear under their eyes their cheeks will raise very high and slight
wrinkles called crow’s feet will appear on the edge of their eyes the best way
to practice this is by paying attention to the next time you’re actually having
a good time when you’re actually smiling or laughing because you feel great pay
attention to how your face feels and then practice it on your own at home in
front of a mirror it takes some practice but you’ll eventually be able to pull it
off and the crazy thing is when you learn how to create a genuine smile on
command you will actually feel better in your interactions with others which
makes you seem like an even more fun person to be around
second friend signal is what’s called the eyebrow flash this is when you raise
and drop your eyebrows very very quickly in fact you can practice this right now
by raising and lowering your eyebrows as fast as you can just like this if you
sit down and watch people in a crowded area you’ll notice that almost all close
friends who are meeting up will use it upon seeing each other it’s kind of a
way of saying hello so when you use it with a complete stranger or an
acquaintance that you barely know it’s gonna make you appear a lot friendlier
because it’s a body language sign that we’re accustomed to seeing our friends
use so how do we use the eyebrow flash well it’s best used from a distance at
least a couple of feet away let’s say you see someone across the room that
you’d like to talk to by using the eyebrow flash combined with a bit of eye
contact and a genuine smile you’d be telling them hey I’m a friendly person
and I like to talk to you now it’s very important to note that you have to do
this correctly if you do the eyebrow flash incorrectly you’re gonna come off
as a complete creep the most common mistake that people make when using the
flash is that they hold their eyebrows up for too long just like this another
common mistake is that they don’t smile if you use the eyebrow flash and just
stare at someone without smiling you’re gonna come off as a potential
threat so try not to do that alright so let’s move on to the final friend signal
which is the head tilt now the head tilt is a powerful friend signal because of
what it implies see the arteries on the side of our neck are some of the most
important arteries in our body so when we humans and also other mammals feel
threatened we tend to tuck our neck in in order to protect these sensitive
areas when you actively tilt your head to the side you’re actually exposing one
of the most vulnerable parts of your body to the world which signals to
whoever you’re interacting with that you feel extremely comfortable relaxed and
at ease and remember like we mentioned before when you do something like smile
and you feel a certain way whoever you’re interacting with will also feel a
little bit of that too so your feeling of ease and comfort will transfer over
to whoever you’re interacting with people are going to think wow this
person is so relaxed around me that makes me feel better
even though I just met him now how exactly do we do the head tilt well it’s
actually quite simple you want to make sure that you’re tilting your head just
a little bit not so much anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees if you tilt your head
so much gonna look kind of weird you want to use
the head tilt when you’re close to someone like when you’re sitting down at
a table or at the bar it is especially powerful when someone
else is talking and you’re listening to them as it will look like you are
extremely focused on whatever it is that they’re saying and people love a good
listener now if you combine all three of these
powerful friend signals properly then it should look something like this and just to give you an idea of how
powerful this is let’s compare it to the same person doing none of these things
can you see the difference which one would you want to talk to more these
three friends signals are extremely important when it comes off to giving a
good first impression so make sure you practice using them in all of your
future interactions if you do I guarantee that you will see an
improvement in how people receive you in our next lesson we’re gonna talk about
body language signs you want to avoid you just learned about what signals will
