Body language expert shares simple hacks to tell what people are thinking

A body language expert has been sharing tips and tricks on TikTok and now she has over a million followers who hang off her every word, as she reveals how to tell what people are thinking

A body language expert has shared a series of tricks and tips to tell what people are thinking – and it’s easier than you’d think.

TikTok star Patrica has over one million followers and regularly uploads videos sharing body language hacks including how to appear more confident, how to handle social situations, and how to flirt.

But she has also uploaded a few clips on how to read the body language of others, and by following her simple tricks you will be able to know what people think.

In one clip she reveals how when having a conversation with someone, you should watch their feet, and in another she says you should keep an eye on their hands – as both can tell you a lot about the other person.

In one clip, Patricia talks about feet and said: “If their feet are pointed at you, it signals that the pointer is interested in you.

“If their feet are pointed away from you, it can signal disinterest, discomfort or desire to exit the conversation.”

Patricia revealed that people also increase their lower body movements when they lie, adding that it is “the brain’s attempt to hide, to run away from what is being experienced”.

She then moved onto the hands, saying: “If they’re hiding their hands while they’re speaking to you, that means they’re feeling uncomfortable around you and they don’t want to engage in the conversation.

“If they’re exposing their hands during the conversation, it means that they’re feeling at ease with you. They like you.”

On that topic, Patricia went on to say that there are more ways to tell if someone likes you – and one of them is how they smile.

She said that a fake smile only involves the mouth and teeth, whereas a genuine smile uses the muscles around the eyes – and she added: “They ‘smile with their eyes’ too.”
