  • Open
  • Eager
  • Dominant
  • Frustrated
  • Defensive
  • Bored
  • Confident
  • Aggressive
  • Nervous

Facial expressions can convey a message, which words cannot. Facial expressions are an effective means of visual communication and should not be neglected. Of all the facial expressions, a smile is the most powerful expression. A smile conveys warmth & confidence and creates a pleasant impression.

Maintain Eye Contact
Eye Contact is the most important aspect of a favorable body language and indicates that the person is attentive. In the West, a prolonged eye contact is favorable and a part of communication etiquette. However, one must avoid a prolonged eye contact, as it signals intimidation.

Posture
An open posture is highly advisable, when in a conversation, as it indicates an inviting posture. To make a favorable first impression, uncross your legs, unfold your arms, and ensure that the body is facing the other person. This indicates that you are interested in the conversation and paying attention.

Finally, it is imperative to have a relaxed yet attentive demeanor, which indicates that you are comfortable around someone and with yourself as well. These tips will help you communicate effectively with others and make you more confident at the same time for making the right impression on others.
