Everyone has probably noticed that they often sit in the same position — the most comfortable and convenient for them. Yet few people think that any position is a feature that can say a lot about them.
Bright Side collected for you 10 common sitting positions that will tell you something interesting about the nature of others.
You’re a strong-willed and confident person who almost never doubts the correctness of your actions and decisions. You like to be in the know and in control. At the same time, you’re very reliable in communications with relatives and colleagues, and you always try to come to the rescue and support in rough times.
You’re a sensitive and sympathetic person who tries to never remain indifferent to others’ feelings. As a rule, you’re careful in your decisions and actions and tend to analysis: before you proceed with an important thing, you watch the situation for a long time, comparing the pros and cons.
This position is characteristic of those easily carried away and interested in a variety of things. You’re moderately curious and open to making new acquaintances. You can ingratiate yourself with others, skillfully make compliments, and you praise your interlocutor if you feel it to be appropriate.
At first glance, you may seem a cold-hearted person, but when people get to know you they see totally new sides of you: kindness, amiability, and sincerity. However, you’re rather straightforward in serious questions. You’re punctual, meticulous, and prefer to stick to a plan in everything.
You’re a purposeful person who often shows pronounced leadership skills. You’re always trying to stay informed and like to keep everything — and sometimes everyone — under control, and that’s why you can be called commanding. You’re open to new friends but rather jealous in relationships.
You’re modest and even shy often feeling embarrassed in front of strangers. You can hardly be called a confident person. You try to hide your feelings and emotions from others, so you’re often considered a closed person.
You’re a serious person with a strong character. Your thoughts are characterized by depth, so there’s often a thoughtful and concentrated expression on your face rather than a radiant smile. Despite feeling completely confident, you don’t hurry to open up to other people.
You’re very gentle, sensitive, and good-natured. You don’t ignore other people’s problems, reacting immediately and trying to give all possible help. At the same time, you’re rather shy, often doubting your words and decisions.
You’re an obvious leader, a bold and confident person who clearly demonstrates it to others. As a rule, this position is common among focused and attentive people rather than the absent-minded. You’re not afraid of taking responsibility not only for your own but also for others’ decisions. You’re not afraid of problems and quickly find ways to solve them.
You’re very emotional, impulsive, open, and amiable. You’re cheerful and try to always remain optimistic and share it with other people. Communicating with you, people get inspired and get positive energy, so you almost never stay alone.
