El test del lunes: The quick body language quiz

Creo que llevo un par de semanas sin test del lunes, así que hoy toca uno que tenía guardado para hacer desde hace unas semanas: El test rápido de lenguaje no-verbal, o


Se trata de 30 preguntas para ver si entendemos el lenguaje gestual de la gente que nos rodea. Hay una versión más larga que puede que haga en otra ocasión, hoy no toca... que tengo algo de prisa!

Y mi resultado es bastante chungo (o los actores no me convencen):

YOU'RE AVERAGE. Well, if you’re a man then, believe it or not, you’re actually just above average. If you’re a woman and you’re score is under 50 then you probably often wonder why you wind up with men that are such complete and utter losers. The good news is that with a little extra attention to your body language, and other people’s, you could really begin to experience the difference. Reading body language is just like any other skill – it takes practice. Really great sportspeople and actors spend a tremendous amount of time watching how others do it. Try going to a party and blend into the background and then watch how people are interacting with each other. Try and predict what will happen and why. You’ll be amazed at how well this works and how hard it is not to participate. It’s programmed into human psychology that we should take part. The problem is that when you’re “out there” it’s hard to see what is really going on. Try watching some movies – not for the sake of the story – but to watch the actors. This really works. Actors use body language as the tools of their trade. When we talk about bad acting we really mean bad and unconvincing body language. Still, body language is something that you feel you’re beginning to understand. If you made it close to a score of 60 then you should be reasonably pleased with yourself.

Y hablando de lenguaje no-verbal, las feromonas también cuentan. Ya que el test es cutrillo, os dejo con una explicación de porqué Crepúsculo tiene tanto éxito:
