The philosophy of the body
    #11391816 - 11/05/09 05:42 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Ok everyone, time for your logic class, let's begin our excercises...

Elbows out,

Arms and Legs Crossed,

Shoulders Tensed,

Eyebrows furrowed,

Feet Tapping,

Unprovoked coughing,

Out of the blue sneezing,

Ok everyone now for ear tugs! 

Left Right Left Right.

And nose pushes!

Left Right Past Future

Oh wait!  Wrong Class!

Maybe I should have asked a question,

Are body language movements relative to how we feel about the concepts we express or are they universal, reflecting things the same way regardless of our thoughts?

Does paying attention to body language consciously help us communicate?

Sadly, we only have words to help us measure how well we actually can rely on body language, yet we cant be 100%, like anything.

Communication is such a difficult thing to perfect. I only practice it deeply with people I care about deeply(I would be with a sense of loss if they died, left me or felt sad)

Since I realize that most of the communication on this forum leads us into circles if I take the communication to be, more than 80-90%, parallel in meaning. Thus I only utilize it as a way to mentally stimulate my mind because I find books boring, this forum is like a book for me. So many different idea's, variety etc, its ripe. Plus peoples minds are multiple times more appealing than a dumb fucking peice of paper.

In real life, I would definitely not react to body language to the best of my ability and if its really making me feel bad(though I should do it for when I feel good) I try and find out what it means, through which me and the other person, usually benefit from.

I also ensure excellent communication during talks about emotions and the future, with my sexual partner and friend, Vitality(thats not her real name, lol, but on this forum, what is real anyways?)

Short answer, I would not react to body language if it really causes alot of stress, I would give the person the benefit of the doubt until I find out, because it would feel better to give the person the benefit of the doubt, unless it doesnt :P

if you ever feel lost, just remember, life is not a journey, it is entertainment, all 4 fun...

I treat body language like words, it doesn't really stress me at all.  Its a lot easier to tell what someone is thinking based on their body language than their words.

I think body language has to do with what a person cares about at any given moment. The alignment of their body and the places they attend to indicate what is important to them. If the alignment changes in syncronicity to something, it is going to indicate how someone feels about that something, in terms of their status relationship

Right but any interpretation is limited by how rightly we judge the things we see.

so? people can be good and bad readers of body language. but you cannot read any body language if you do not pay attention to it. Concentrating on it , on teh other hand.. i dunno you might start giving off strange body language

I think we read most body language on a sub conscious level.

I think most people do.  Last semester after I took too much acid too often I started reading it partly consciously, no shit.

I do think about my own body language more as a result, but I think it silences my subconscious body language a lot more to realize it while it is happening. I use my body to talk more now, or at least it seems that i notice it more.

Body language is a the majority of our communication, part of communication that is hard to fake as opposed to a simple lie. Our body has learned and adapted to react to the environment and actions of others on a sub conscious level, same with reading body language. It's learned through social interaction and is defined by out culture.
It's hard to consciously read body language because it will be different for each person, different tendencies for different thoughts and feelings. But some things have an almost universal reading, such as eye movement and focus.

I disagree that its hard but it has taken me about half a year to really tune in to it.

We all can make the same movements, the trick is figuring out why certain people make certain movements.
