ON THE BACK BURNER

June 2

I am back to reading about body position and how to win people over. Do you know people who close their eyes for a few seconds or more,when they talk to you ? Now I am learning that this is meant as a barrier because that closed eyed person doesn't want you to make him anxious or uncomfortable. I thought it was because he was being extremely thoughtful and was thinking ! This is another non verbal response that I am learning about. And now I also have to count eye blinks . 15 blinks a minute is normal. My eyes are always blurry, so I may blink a lot to clear them. Please don't start counting. Crossed , folded arms is a whole chapter. You are in serious trouble if the person you are communicating with has their arms in that position. This is a bad, bad signal. I'm surprised that we make any friends, if we have so much to think about that is non verbal. When does the talking start ? Even something as simple as a woman putting her purse on her lap is a clew that the party is over. I can't remember all of these signs to have a decent conversation. Just email me. luchitelle@yahoo.com.

You gotta watch out for the worst signal -- Sixteen blinks and walks away! Not a great way to encourage friendship I guess.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
