    Both the second and third were pointing. The second one was just pure index finger. It's harder to point with upward palms.
    This talk is just appealing to people who fall for the fallacy that whoever is more aggressive is the 'alpha'. If anything, it's just showing me how egomaniacs and controlling people function

    People that use these methods are seeking to manipulate others and claim undeserved power. Learn these cues and dismiss those that attempt to use them. Do not allow yourself to be manipulated by gestures of others. THINK!

    Notice his major body language in that he is given a red disc to work from and he stands right at the front edge. A predominantly red tie helps booster his ‘presence’, compare with the Trump long red tie.

    I read Hes and Barbaras book about a year ago, and been practicing their methods. It was rly hard to start noticing everything at first, but than it became more and more common to me. I also use this change of position to change feeling and it helped me a lot in many situations. For example, today, i had a coffee with a friend, and she brought 2 friends with her. One of them was an extreme introvert. It was my first time to meet both of them. After we had coffee those 2 went their way, and me and that friend went other, and she told me that she never seen her more relaxed in front of a complete stranger than today. I can say, i think i finally convinced her to read their book... :)

    What this comes down to is, "If I contort my body in a certain way, I'll be able to change how other people feel and think about me".
    Which itself more succinctly put, is: I can influence how other people feel about me.
    So most people then, are intensely concerned with how other people feel about them, and don't realise a simple truth.
    What other people think about you, is not in your hands. Literally or figuratively. It is in theirs. And while body language, a smile, a positive tone of voice and so on conveys a certain impression, the reality is this.
    What you think about yourself is beyond everything else.
    If you don't like yourself, then you'll be forcing yourself to learn body language methods to get other people to like you, and if other people like you, then (so folks think) you will like yourself more.
    Why not just skip the entire "other people" step, and focus on learning to like yourself ?
    This whole body language thing is about reflecting to others, how you feel.
    If you feel good, comfortable, happy, unconcerned, confident, isn't that a better goal to try to achieve than, "if only I keep my palms facing upwards, more people will like me" ?
    Like yourself. Learn that skill.
    Or even better: accept that any emotional state is fleeting, and that nobody else can make you happy.
    DOING WHAT YOU WANT TO DO is way more important.
    Whatever barriers are in the way of you, right now, doing what you want to be doing, right now. Those are what you should focus on.

      Yep. He changed more than his palms. He changed what he said, the tone of voice and his other movements each time.
      I know body language is important, but people get so suckered by this kind of thing, it is truly bizarre. Truly.
