I loved reading “Body Intelligence versus The Intellect: Which is the Greater?” from our Sam, must admit my head has left it’s body once or twice. Then “Elephants Pirouette in Africa” by Andrew, followed by “Do you think your posture affects your appearance and/or health?” where Nick Hodgson asked these questions :
Do you think that having bad posture makes people look…
Do you believe that making sure you have good posture could make you look and feel…
As I see it, the common thread being ‘body language’. Apparently a current social capital worth depends on our charm. So how erotic is your charm? Now that would be a fun scoring system in your network?.
To get you started I wanted to highlight the meaning of flirting. According to wikipedia Flirting is a playful, romantic or sexual overture by one person to another, subtly indicating an interest in a deeper relationship with the other person, and can involve verbal communication as well as body language. Body language can include flicking the hair, eye contact, brief touching, open stances, proximity etc. Verbal communication of interest can include the vocal tone, such as pace, volume, intonation. Challenges (teasing, questions, qualifying, feigned disinterest) serve to increase tension, test intention and congruity.
So come on what messages do you give out when you go about networking?
How do you rate someone’s charm?
