  • Can you read someone’s mind by looking at them? Almost. Lynne Franklin teaches you how to connect with 3 types of people by understanding how their bodies communicate. After a boy threatened to kill her with a machete, Lynne Franklin decided to learn everything she could about persuasion. She became a neuroscience nerd, studying how the brain works and how to build rapport with people. She has since worked with organizations to use persuasive communication to increase their performance, productivity, and profit, and published a book about her personal research called Getting Others to Do What You Want. In addition to her marketing and consulting work, Lynne is a member of the National Speakers Association and President-elect of its Illinois chapter.

    I watched the video feeling positive and motivated. I found out that I belong to the 5% group. Yeah, a toucher. Amazingly,I have big full lips and I resist hugging people dear to me as they feel awkward. And To make things clearer, I always prefer comfort to style. I always get some kind of feelings while watching a movie or listening to a song and when I come across them again, I get the same feelings again. This is a bit terrifying as I cannot bear to listen to those songs which I had heard during a time of crisis.
    I write emails full of what I felt about a particular something. And revisiting memories either makes me joyous or unfathomably sad.

    Well, my mother says being a toucher is not something to be Happy about, as you cannot leap on everyone you know, when you see them. Plus, it has other disadvantages too.
    What say, touchers?

    I am listener myself, but I make eye contact and I don't give people hugs right away, because I've read a book when I was younger that you should give eye contact to people when they are talking. It's more sincere that way. Etiquette books says don't give hugs to people you just meet.

    I say "I feel like" but that's like my emotions not the desire to touch people i don't like touching people I'm actually a listener especially the fact I'm an introvert i only like touching people i love and care about 🤔 that's normal right?

    Towards the end she makes sense. Like we have a dominant hand we have a dominant style. What about the 1% tho lol. The people who are a good mix of everything. Some people are intellectual which would me they are all around. Right ?

    I really don't agreed with her diagnoses, people had their own ideas of others on the first thought. am so sure of myself that people think am so detached, and its not against the law to be one until they came to know me, and I can't be bother to knows them back, cause of their insensibilities of false judgemental attitude.

    Wait I don't like eye contact, I don't listen well, and social touch is uncomfortable. Hmmm I'm thinking this might not be accurate, but maybe I wasn't really listening too well.
