Negotiation Body Language Secret # 931:
Harbaugh's Fear and Anxiety

Jim Harbaugh, the Head Coach for the San Francisco 49ers, is pictured here expressing two classic nonverbals - Fear and Anxiety. The posterior neck touching/scratching/rubbing are extremely common body language tells for "Pure Anxiety" and they are usually NOT associated with deception.

The emotion of fear is clearly, but partially expressed in Harbaugh's (left side) mouth expression.

The 49ers lost to the New York Giants yesterday in the NFC Championship game and will face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI.
