According to psychologists, the sitting posture of a person says a lot about their intentions and personality.
In most cases, our sitting styles can vary based on our surroundings and mood.
But if you really want to know how to interpret other people’s poses and tweak your own posture for a first-class impression, here are five sitting positions and what they mean.
1. Sitting Erect
It is said that in eight out of ten cases, people who sit with their legs straight are often neat and intelligent.
They are also quick to detect or respond to slight changes, signals or influences.
Also, sitting with straight legs is a sign that you’d rather keep your feelings to yourself than get involved in a conflict.
2. Sitting With Crossed Legs
It is also believed that people who cross their legs are more artistic in nature.
This set of people often have strange and creative ideas that cause others to think in a different way because they are likely to have a powerful imagination.
3. Armrest While Sitting
People who regularly rely on armrests while sitting has been identified as the shaky type who needs to find a way to steady themselves.
4. Clasping hands while sitting
People don’t usually clasp their hands while sitting but when they do, it can be interpreted as a sign of attempting to be extra polite.
However, psychologists claim that it can also be a sign that you are lying and trying very hard to be pleasing.
5. Sitting with legs angled at one side
This sitting position is most common among female folks and it is said to be a sign that suggests that these people are believers of time and place.
In other words, they believe that everything has its time and place.
In addition, appearances are important to these ones and they dress very nice to put up a very good look.
