The art of mind reading is a fascinating subject. Though there are people who actually have a gift in this area, most individuals who are interested in learning more about this subject have to rely on mind reading techniques taken from a variety of different sources. There are a plethora of books and videos that teach these techniques. In addition, you can find quite a bit of information on the subject through the internet. Techniques to read people’s minds can be learned by anyone if they have the desire to learn. Many of these techniques have been used for years by different professions to facilitate their work. These professions include government officials, policemen, teachers and more. The following are some basic techniques you can practice to develop your skills in this area.
You can tell a great deal about a person by looking into his eyes. Certain eye patterns can indicate how a person is feeling, such as fearful, nervous, wary, etc. These same eye patterns can almost tell you what a person is thinking. For example, some men’s eyes become larger when they see a beautiful woman, expressing their awareness of her presence and showing their interest. This same dilation of the eyes can be seen when a person is experiencing fear or shock. Depending on what is happening at the time, you can “read” a person’s mind through the expression in his eyes.
In like manner you may be able to tell when someone is not telling the truth through reading his eyes. Eye patterns such as looking away rather than looking into someone’s eyes often indicates a person is uneasy or nervous during a conversation. Eyes that dart left or right or up or down during a conversation also have distinct indications of a person’s thought processes which may range from thinking about the past or fabricating a response for the future.
Another technique which can be linked to reading someone’s mind is studying body language. The way a person is standing or placing his arms can tell you whether he is relaxed or worried. Arms that are constantly fidgeting may indicate a person is nervous or feeling uncomfortable. Arms that are crossed in front may indicate a defensive posture or a somber mood. You can also relate people’s feelings to how they respond when close to others such as backing off when others come too close or having sudden reactions when certain things are said. Slouching shoulders may express sadness or despair. If you observe carefully you may also see patterns of expressive actions that show when people are scared, tense or nervous. These actions may be as simple as biting their nails, twisting their hair, tapping their fingers on a table, shifting from feet to feet, etc.
Yet another effective technique to “reading” a person’s mind is their speech tone and expressions. People who are lying tend to become frustrated easier when questioned. Sometimes they will answer in a very low tone of voice in an attempt to sound “normal” or respond with paragraph answers to simple “yes” or “no” questions. These speech patterns are not natural and may be an indication that “something is amiss”. All the above mind reading techniques have been around for years. However, they remain pretty effective to this date. With a little practice, you can develop some talent in this area and hone your skills for any eventuality.
