Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 3807: Sarah Paulson's Fear of Flying - Body Language and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTO)





A rarely discussed body language signal is seen during Sarah Paulson's recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.























During the 1:02 - 1:03, as Ms. Paulson wants to speak, she curls up her fingers in what many would call a fist-like gesture. This is a body language signal of a momentary pent-up desire to speak - fighting against the urge to interrupt.
























Once the speaking begins - the fingers unfurl ...

























... and the hand then (typically) begins a palm-down and forward gesture ("Illustrator") as is seen here.


























Too often people will misinterpret (or not even see) nonverbal cues. Next time, don't miss this one - for it is saying, "It's my turn to speak".
