15 Psychological Tricks That Can Help You Read People Like Open Books

You have probably wondered how things would be if you could read other people's minds. Some people use their intuition for this, but if you are not so perceptive, there is only one choice left: learning to read people's body language. It is a well-known fact that we get over 55% of information through nonverbal communication. Allan Pease, an Australian body language expert, wrote about this.
