November 13, (THEWILL) – A lot of people believe reading someone else’s mind is a control mechanism: if you can determine a person’s next move, you can manipulate them or anticipate their future actions.
In reality, it can be a practical or personal thing. Reading someone’s mind allows you to be there for them, understand their perspective, and connect on a deeper level.
Here are four things to look out for when you are trying to read and predict a person’s mindset.
Body language is a clear indication of what to think. If someone has a furrowed forehead, it is a sign of stress. The way they stand, sit or position themselves is also revealing. When primates demonstrate strength, their arms are wide open. They stretch out and slap against their chest. In addition, there is a decrease in the levels of cortisol (stress indicator hormone).
Likewise, if you get nervous, your cortisol levels will rise. When cortisol levels rise, there are a series of other problems that follow, such as sleep deprivation and weight gain.
You can learn a lot about a person’s mental state from their body language, posture and energy,
If someone is breathing through their chest, it means they are relaxed. If his breathing is shallow, then he is tense. If you want to know someone’s mental state, watch their breath.
If his breathing is choppy, he’s more likely to be nervous, which means there’s something he doesn’t want you to know. The reason could be shyness, anxiety, or that he is hiding something from you.
If someone is breathing through their stomachs, then you know their mental state is calm, which usually means they are sincere.
Read the eyes
The eyes can also be revealing. It is said that the pupil is the portal to the mind. Some studies have shown that when you think a lot, the pupils dilate.
Strangely enough, when the brain is overloaded with information the pupils contract. Also, when you meet someone for the first time, their pupils dilate.
If these dilate and contract immediately, it means that you are not more interested in it than that. If they stay dilated, that means that person is happy to meet you.
Listen to the tone of the voice
Not the words, just the tone. Tone of voice can also indicate a lot, as well as the speed at which words are transmitted. If the words are slow it means the person is calm.
If they are quick, it shows nervousness. Words have little importance compared to the energy that powers them. So there is no need to go into this in depth though, because we all know what it is to adopt a certain tone ’. But sometimes we really have to learn to listen and listen to get answers.
Spend time in their company
If you want to know how someone works, hang out with them. Spend an afternoon together and you will learn a lot. Spend a week, a month, or a year, and you’ll be able to read each other’s minds. Over time, it will become obvious how he will react to certain situations.
When you know someone well, it’s easy to tell if they’re nervous, brave, happy, or sad. That’s why it’s amazing when a parent claims they were unaware of a possible disorder caused by their child.
This is usually a sign that the parent is not spending enough time with their child. If that was the case, the parent would not need to be told that there is something wrong.
Make sure you are not fueling their mind with your energy
Everything depends on you. If you approach a situation nervously, that tension will reflect on the person you are interacting with.
Approaching a situation in a relaxed state allows us to absorb another person’s energy and recognize them for who they really are, without much effort. Notice that we all have the ability to ask someone how they are feeling.
Beyond the politeness of “how are you,” whose typical response is usually “good,” it’s okay to dig a little deeper. Maybe you can try to read her mind and ask specific questions like, “Do you look relaxed and in a good mood?” ” Observations and open-ended questions like this can establish a real dialogue, unlike ordinary jokes.
