In this photo of Actors Blake Lively and Penn Badgley holding hands - Ms. Lively is displaying her dominance nonverbally. It is unusual and even rare to see the woman have her hand in front of her male partner when holding hands. Here, Blake proves the exception. This is a strong dominance display. There can be no doubt who the "Alpha" was in this relationship... and who is the "Beta". Many other body language signals and gestures display dominance - some in the world of romance - and others in the world of business. Overlook them at your peril.
