Body language can often be manipulative. And Power Players are no fans of manipulation. They never experiment with passive aggression either.
Look up and you’re either uncertain or just plain lying.
Look down and you’re having a crisis of confidence.
Place your arms akimbo and everyone thinks you’re angry.
Slouch and you look like you’ve already lost.
Power Players know that body language can give them away quicker than anything else can. They control their mannerisms and quirks so that no one knows what they’re thinking until they say it out loud.
