B. Find in the text the meaning of the gestures from ex. 3A.


Not all of us can radiate that sense of confidence all the time, and there are telltale signals that show when we are feeling unsure of ourselves. According to psychologist Jane Firbank, crossing your arms is the most telling sign that you are feeling less than confident. Putting your arms across your body
in order to play with a handbag or bracelet is another classic defensive gesture. In fact body language gives away our true feelings so often that politicians are taught not to touch their faces, as placing their hands near the mouth or eyes demonstrates insecurity and suggests an attempt to cover up what you really think, Rachel Reeves, social psychologist at Oxford University, says that being perceived as confident and attractive comes down to whether or not we act as if we're uncertain of ourselves, "A loud. hollow laugh is an obvious sign of nerves, and how much space we take up when we're sitting down also shows whether we feel confident. Someone sitting on a sofa with their arms stretched out along the back of it is saying 'I'm worth this much space', whereas someone with their hands tucked between their crossed leds, eyes downcast. is saying, 'Don't mind me' ."
