One Friday after our weekly meeting, my boss pulled me aside to ask if everything was OK. Shocked at the question, I said, "Yes, why?" This was the first time I was made aware of my resting bitch face, which happens when I am listening intently to something. Sometimes people send the wrong message without meaning to, which is why it's good to take inventory of your habits to see if you have any of the common body language mistakes that make you less likable. Because chances are it's just an old habit that you aren't consciously aware of doing.
Even though I am just listening very carefully, the intense stare and tightening of my facial muscles can be alarming to the person I am listening to; the message received is not the one I intended to send. This can happen more often than you think, and if you have some negative body language tendencies, people may start to like you less because of how they read your gestures.
To make sure that you're expressing with your body what you're thinking and feeling, consider these 11 mistakes you maybe making with your body language that may cause people to like you less.
