Position  1

SIT ERECT

 

YOU ARE CONFIDENT

If you prefer this sitting position, with your back and shoulders straight with feet firmly placed on the ground, you appear very bold and confident. Such sitting position sends a direct and strong message.  If in a meeting or debate, you can strike a perfect score by using hand gestures.

 

 

Position 2

CROSS YOUR LEGS

 

YOU ARE INSECURE

 

Such sitting with crossing one leg over the other, you’re making yourself smaller while physically tucking your bottom leg out of sight, which strongly sends a message that you are insecure. You look like you are shrinking and confident people don’t shrink. They spread out like they rule the world

 

That said, like most rules of body language, there are situational exceptions: Crossing your legs toward someone can be a bold statement that says you’re into the person you’re cozying up to. Crossing away from someone, however, can send the message that you’re checked out.

 

Position 3

SIT CROSS-LEGGED

Position 4

CROSS YOUR ANKLES

 

YOU ARE SECURE

 

Sitting in a position like this is better than sitting in a cross-legged position on a chair because it hides your legs less which sends a message that you have very less things to hide. Moreover, when you place your feet firmly on the ground, it also shows that you are secure of yourself.

 

 

Position 5

YOU ARE PEOPLE PLEASER WITH A TENDENCY TO BE DISHONEST

KEEP YOUR HANDS IN THE LAP

YOU ARE CLOSE-MINDED

 

People having sitting position like this are often tend to be close-minded, they have a hard time welcoming new idea or person in their life. Moreover, you also hesitate to change according to the demands, just opposite to open-minded people.

 

 

Position 10

KNEEL

YOU ARE AGGRESSIVE

 

If you have a sitting position like this while you are hanging out with your friends, I suggest you better change it because it projects you as an aggressive member, even when you don’t intend to. That’s why leaders avoid such positions.

Exceptions: most of the things have exceptions and this is nothing different, this position is also a very famous posture of yoga, so if you encounter someone in this sitting position, use your common sense.

 

 

Position 11

SPLAYING YOUR KNEES

YOU ARE FLIRTATIOUS

 

Yes believe it or not, Like every aspect of body language, context is key here: Assuming you don’t take this position for pure comfort, stacking your knees to one side, and propping yourself up on one hand is thought to be flirtatious. “Women are neurologically wired to take up less space when they are flirting,” says Glass, who sees this position as one way women consolidate their limbs in an effort to attract a partner. Meanwhile, while leaning in the direction where your knees point — foreseeable, towards a potential mate — simultaneously makes your upper body more available to that person.

 

Position 12

LEAN BACKWARDS ON YOUR PALMS

 

 

YOU ARE JUDGEMENTAL

 

This sitting position screams “judgmental” if you have such position, you are more likely to be judgmental about things and may have tendency to build up strong perceptions about someone which are hard to change. Moreover you also have a tendency to be doubtful about things
