Is body language interpretation accurate 100% of the time? I feel like some individuals just have a tendency to display these visual cues, like crossing arms out of habit. Or some innocent persons, when placed under pressure or duress, would uncontrollably twitch their facial muscles because they are in an uncomfortable situation.

Interesting. I'm a poker player and watched to see if I could pick up anything useful in poker. Cool that he used poker players as an example. Though he didn't cover a lot of the things I have learned to pay attention to in a game.

Body language means different things at different times. I carry flowers with them pointing to the ground have always done so. Never been to eastern Europe. Never heard of this before now. I carry them that way because it requires less effort then to hold them upright. This stuff is relative and subjective

I worked as Lead FBI ECON EAGLE, the body language thing, that’s not always true, most of the time on investigation it was the OPPOSITE, the frightening results stated that those who stand calm and neutral were more hostile and terroristic - person who does everything correctly such as top-classes, OPPOSITE

A Quote about "A Mover of the Movers"
Excerpt of Disciples of Fortune
...The world gets blessed every now and then with unique souls who though burdened by their invisible crosses, still have the extraordinary strength to forge ahead in life and give others a helping hand at the same time. Despite their tribulations, most people think they are fine. Even when the weight of their crosses become unbearable, even when they proceed in a breathless manner, we still have a hard time understanding that they are drowning. In fact, we even condemn them for failing to sacrifice more...”

He used “I” quite a lot as if he was still trying to sell himself . Perhaps that is just an American communication style.

The dumbest "body language" is when you cross you arms and people view it as you being stand-offish or not wanting to talk. I cross my arms all the time and I simply do it because it's comfortable... nothing more

We carry the flowers that way because they do not dry out. The water goes to the flower instead of leaking out.
