  • So last week my buddy Greg moved into a new house and now is throwing a party for the occasion Ploy.

  • What a turnout.

  • But look, I'm here on a mission to read all these people like an open book.

  • Let's find out who's good at communicating and who's not getting the message.

  • We'll start with that girl in the denim jacket sitting on the couch.

  • She's fidgeting, her hands on her knees.

  • It's a clear sign she wants to end the conversation.

  • Too bad the guy next door isn't getting the hint and keeps talking.

  • Oh, there's Dan taking pictures of everyone.

  • He volunteered to be a photographer to get an obvious reason to start talking to people tonight.

  • He's a shy guy, but he's already giving that couple his social media so they can contact him to see the pictures.

  • Great way to get more friends.

  • Let's move on to those two.

  • Chris and Jenny.

  • Her gaze is following an upside down triangle on his face.

  • She looks at one eye than the other and then his mouth.

  • That's why Chris feels like she's really paying attention.

  • I bet he thinks she's a great listener, a different situation is going on with the two women standing in the fireplace.

  • One of them uses the right side up triangle, looking at one eye, the other eye and then her forehead and to sign.

  • She's not into this conversation, and it works.

  • The other woman wraps it up quickly and walks away.

  • Greg is so busy introducing everyone to each other.

  • Well, Mark knows what he's doing.

  • He took a second and notice Emma's eye color.

  • This just the perfect amount of eye contact.

  • M is obviously pleased with her new acquaintance and feels at ease chatting with him.

  • Check out those two guys in the armchairs.

  • Notice how Frank subtly mirrors John's body language.

  • John put an elbow on an arm rest, and Frank did the same.

  • Frank surely knows how to get someone to like you and subconsciously gain their trust.

  • I'd say it's time for me to join a group.

  • Luckily there, feet turned toward me when I walked up.

  • This means I'm welcome and didn't interrupt them at a bad time.

  • If their feet pointed away from me, I've no, it's better to leave.

  • Honestly, Leslie is the funniest.

  • Everyone, including me, keeps laughing at her jobs.

  • And every time laughter breaks out, Leslie turns her gaze to Fred.

  • We all instinctively do it when we like someone.

  • I'm getting hungry.

  • Let's head to the dining room.

  • Oh, Jack and Sir are here.

  • They had a falling out a few days ago, but it's good Jack chose a place next to her instead of sitting across.

  • Sarah is now less likely to start an argument.

  • Lisa just asked Brad to pastor a napkin.

  • She could easily reach it herself, but she met Brad for the first time at this party.

  • And when you ask a new person for a small favor, their brain gets a message.

  • They already like you since they've done something for him.

  • Hey, what's Carl doing behind that huge house plan?

  • Oh, I see.

  • He's rubbing his hands together, and I know why when you exchange a handshake with a new person.

  • Ah, warm hand leaves a good first impression.

  • Nice thinking, Carl.

  • Safer Jessica.

  • She just raised her eyebrows a bit when Greg introduced her Delia.

  • We usually do that instinctively when we see someone we already know.

  • Doing so during the first encounter makes a person feel like there's already an established rapport between YouTube.

  • Oh, dance party breaking out in the yard.

  • Those who don't dance but still feel like talking are trying hard to be heard over the music Onley Josh knows not to cup your hand behind your ear.

  • Instead, press that small cartilage bump on your ear called The Trade Gets to hear someone better, and they won't have to yell.

  • But the music really is too loud.

  • Let's go back inside.

  • New guests have arrived, but not all of them are interested in chitchat.

  • That guy sitting on the couch with his arms and legs crossed, I'd better not strike up a conversation with him.

  • A different case is that woman in the baseball cap.

  • Her posture is very relaxed, arms and legs uncrossed.

  • She's also asking her conversation partner a lot of questions about their work, hobbies, interests, opinions.

  • She knows the trick.

  • We all love talking about ourselves.

  • Emily leaned in to carry and is whispering something in her ear.

  • Carrie then gave her a bad on the back.

  • I bet Emily told her some great secret about herself, even though they just met.

  • This is a great way to make someone new trust you and feel free to open up to you.

  • Hey, I just got complimented on my shirt.

  • We all like compliments and giving them is one of the easiest yet most effective ways to get a conversation flowing.

  • What's the best compliment you ever got?

  • Let me know in the comments below.

  • While you're doing that, here are a few more tips that can help you in your social and professional life.

  • If your job is all about face to face communication, put a mirror behind you at your workplace.

  • This'll make people more agreeable because no one looks good when they're angry or yelling.

  • They'll try to be more friendly and smiling to show you're listening attentively.

  • Repeat what the other person said Before you react, your boss yelled at you in front of everyone that's messed up.

  • Sounds a lot more convincing than just following with a That's messed up.

  • If you feel like there's an argument about to break out, start eating something.

  • It will diffuse the tense atmosphere, since food is a sign of stability and peace for our brains.

  • If you want someone to feel uncomfortable because of some insensitive remarks, maybe start looking at the middle of their forehead or a pie in the face can work to.

  • Just kidding on that one.

  • Don't waste a perfectly good pie on a jerk.

  • If you want someone to do something, give them three options.

  • Save the one you want them to choose as the last that will make them feel like they have freedom of choice.

  • But the most likely pick the last option, since it's the freshest in their mind.

  • If someone's having a joke at your expense, make them feel uneasy by asking them to explain what's so funny about it.

  • Just yelling for help in an emergency usually doesn't work.

  • Instead, we not one person from the crowd to get assistance.

  • For example, you in the green shirt call for help.

  • Hopefully, you're not color blind.

  • If someone tries toe loudly, talk over you.

  • Just keep talking without raising your voice or changing its tone exactly like you were before the interruption.

  • Bell feel awkward and will probably back down if you want others to agree with you slightly not and maintain eye contact while you're speaking.

  • Nodding means everything I'm saying is true, so people will believe you.

  • So try this out at your next social gathering and let me know how it goes.

  • Hey, if you learned something new today, then give the video alike and share it with a friend.

  • And here are some other cool videos I think you'll enjoy.

  • Just click to the left or right, and remember, stay on the bright side of life.
