Your sitting style can vary as per your mood. Psychologists have proved that the sitting position of a person talks a lot about our intentions and personality. The sitting position shows our hidden instincts and wishes. This has been always a great technique for interviewers to know about you as a person. It’s not just the workplace but it’s a great way to check someone’s mood or personality as well.
So, this is what your sitting says about your personality. Check yours!
1. Sitting erect: You are confident AF
Sitting up straight and feet firmly planted on the floor means you are very confident. You get extra points if you use your hands to gesture as you speak. Again, who runs the world?
2. Crossed legs: Either you’re insecure or very bold
Crossing your legs toward someone can be a bold statement that says you’re into the person you’re cozying up to. And interestingly it also means that you are feeling insecure.
3. Sitting crossed-leg: Open minded
Sitting cross-legged on the floor or sofa indicates openness. You are loose, casual, and easy-going. It also means you’re agile and athletic.
4. Crossed ankles: Nothing to hide
Crossing one whole leg over the other while sitting in a chair projects the message that you’ve got very little to hide. And when your feet are planted firmly on the ground, it shows you’re sure of yourself and feeling secure.
5. Sitting in the center of couch or bench: Confident
“Where should I sit? Left or right side?” Sitting in the center of a bench or couch indicate that you are confident.
6. Using armrests: You are insecure
Do you regularly rely on the arm rests? It means you’re the shaky type and little insecure.
