At an event with several people, many women can quickly find out how these people relate to one another, who does not like someone and who else is conspicuous in their behavior and what may be the reason for this. MRI images clearly show why women communicate much more extensively than men.
Often we call people intuitive or attentive when we actually mean their understanding of body language. The so-called queasy gut feeling also arises when we subconsciously perceive that a statement does not match the body language. This also works in the same way with fictional statements or lies, the spoken word and the physical expressions do not match or are even contradictory.
According to anthropologist Ray Birdwhistell, people can show around 250,000 expressions with their faces alone and recognize the same in other people. Nowadays, especially in politics, it is essential for public television appearances that the presentation and appearance are identical to the spoken statement in terms of body language.
