Agree about question 7-- I can't hear very well at all, and always look at the speakers' mouths. While taking this quiz, I had that in the back of my head, thinking: well, I'm concentrating, I guess-- I certainly don't want to kiss anyone!

They also sweat when they lie and/or they shift the blame back onto the accuser. I thought #4 was difficult & rather tricky! :( 5/10

also, since when did rolling up your sleeves mean you're relaxed. I normally associate that with about to get down to work on somethin (food, gardening, etc.) Yeah, I thought the exact same thing!

yeah i'd like to fight on number 7. A lot of time people are looking at your moth as you speak because they're trying to hear you better. Science proved (no i cannot find the link.) that you can hear better when you can see the speakers face. And everyone knows a little bit how to read lips, naturally.

I only got 5 right, I am a little disappointed, I really thought I knew more about this particular subject. Oh well, you live and learn.

6/10 I was taught in my Anthropology of Business class that this isn't true: "Nonverbal communication varies between cultures, but facial expressions for happiness, sadness, anger, and fear are universal." I was told that many Russians don't smile in public (I forget the reason), but that it doesn't mean they aren't happy.

"A head tilt to the right increases attractiveness but a tilt to the right does not do the same. " Typo?

That was very interesting! I only got 6 out of 10, but after reading those links I think I might pay more attention to body language from now on.
