One of the easiest ways to get information from someone is reading his or her body language. 

It is easier to tell that someone is lying by looking at the movement of his or her eyes. 

However, some signals can be hard to interpret if you are not knowledgeable.

You must equip yourself with some skills to read people’s minds by simply looking at them. 

Here are three ways to read someone's body language:

1.Crossed arms/legs

When a person crosses his legs or arms whenever you are talking, it shows disapproval. 

The signals symbolise resistance to your ideas. 

In short, the person is saying that he or she doesn’t agree with you. 

Never assume when you see someone you are talking to crossing these two body parts.

2.  Real versus fake smile

It is not easy to tell the difference between a real and fake smile. 

When the skin around one’s eyes create a crinkle when he or she smiles, then it is means they are telling the truth. 

If you cannot see the crinkling, then he or she is faking it.

3.  Copycat

 When a person copies your body language all the time you are conversing, it means there is a strong bond between the two of you. 

He or she will do this subconsciously. 

It is a good signal when someone is mirroring your body language throughout your meeting.
