Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 2074:
Mitt Romney and Senator Kelly Ayotte
What Body Language Tells?

Mitt Romney has a habit of putting his hands in his pockets when stage. This body language signal is a clear indication he feeling emotional dissonance. In such a context, no right-minded parent ever told their son or daughter to put their hands in their pockets. No adult who professes to lead should either. It is a very beta, low confidence, unassertive and demure sign. Given this setting, one has to wonder - Why? Answer - it tells us with absolute confidence that he will NOT pick Senator Kelly Ayotte as a running mate. In poker parlance, Romney is bluffing.
