    So as I'm driving down the road with my girlfriend sitting shotgun. "She's sitting crossleg" right foot in the air.

    I then ask.

    Are you a cheater?

    She answers no, but her foot was moving up and down sorta like saying the opposite.

            ALOT of the stuff he talks about are HUGE parts in acting and how to not only create your character but help with simple things like blocking and reacting off of your second character’s role ig you could say.

              I often carry flowers that way. Must be in my genes. Now the important question: Why was the spy carrying flowers?

                Crock. The NSD of the FBI has been bent for decades and this genius never detected it? Heck, you didn't even need body language. All you had to do is read their texts.

                  All of these nonverbal cues at once is a sign the person is on drugs.

                    Thank you for making this video, I sincerely appreciate it and would like to see more. This video will help people who are truly interested in expanding their knowledge on this topic. It has always been fascinating to see how people react to certain things just by being observant. Most of the time you know exactly how they will react or the choice they will make in situations.

                                  So he mentions cultural differences in nonverbal communication, which indicates that it's a learned behavior. I'm curious whether he's able to read a person with ASD/asperger's in the same way since ASD people may have difficulty learning & interpreting body language? Or would ASD cause false readings of the person in question?

                                                  At the end of the day, this is irrelevant to a major percentage of society based on health status, habits and lifestyles that are without definition.
                                                  There is no textbook hundred percent correct source for this. It's all assumed and based on probability and destroys people's lives everyday and empowers other people to think that they are better.
