To question: 'If you could choose, what super power would you like to have?' Most people answered with ' I would read other people's mind'.
We often want to know what exactly people think and try to understand their way of thinking. But what many don’t know is that there are six easy ways to read someone's mind ...
1. Body language
Body language is a clear indicator to discover one's thoughts easily. If the forehead is wrinkled, the person is probably under stress. The thing that is also very important is the way the person is sitting or standing. When people want to show their strength, they spread their arms, strain muscles and hit on the chest. They actually reduce the stress that way. People react in a similar way when they are nervous because their cortisol level increases. When the level of this hormone increases, it can lead to insomnia, weight gain and other problems. In short, you can learn more about the mental state of a person solely on the basis of their body language, attitude and energy level.
2. Pay attention to breathing
If someone breathes deeply, that means they are relaxed. If breathing is rapid with lower air intake, that means that he is nervous. Usually, people who are breathing quicky are just shy or may be hiding something from you. If someone is breathing relaxed, it means they are calm and probably telling the truth.
3. Look into their eyes
‘Eyes are the mirror of the soul’, the saying goes. It is believed that the pupil of an eye is the door to mind. Studies have shown that many people who think a lot have dilated pupils. Also, when you meet someone for the first time, pupils expand. If they spread and immediately narrow, it means that the person is not interested in you. If they remain widespread, it means that the person wants to be in your company.
4. Pay attention to the tone of voice
Without words, the tone of voice alone can show many things. The pace of voice is also very important. Talking slowly indicates peace, while talking quickly indicates nervousness. Words are not as important as the main power behind them.
5. Spend time with people
If you want to know what someone thinks, it is necessary to spend some time with them. In just one day you can learn a lot of things, but in months and years you can read each other's mind. When you spend time with someone, you gradually learn how that person reacts in certain situations. Time is the tool that opens the door to mind.
6. Pay attention not to fulfill your mind
It all depends on you. If someone behaves nervously, this tension will be transferred to you. With a calm approach, you can absorb the energy of other people and learn a lot without speculation. Self-awareness is the key in an attempt to become more aware of people around you. The more you are open to others, the easier you read their minds.
