Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 3540: Johnny Manziel's Ego - Body Language Tells (PHOTO)

A grand jury in Dallas, Texas has indicted Johnny Manziel on a charge of assault. Colleen Crowley, Manziel's ex girlfriend, is alleging the former NFL quarterback of threatening, restraining and hitting her - causing her to lose hearing in one ear.  The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has denied hitting Ms. Crowley. The indictment accuses Johnny Manziel of "intentionally and knowingly and recklessly (causing) bodily injury to" Ms. Crowley.

Be careful here to observe specifically the prominence of the lower lip (compared with the upper one). Moreover, it's crucial to note that this lower lip pout is also accompanied by a jutting forward of the jaw (Jaw Jut). The lip prominence largely camouflages the jaw's movement. It's an attempt of the psyche at misdirection. Every human being makes this expression from time to time - but those who display this expression chronically have personalities with a higher incidence of egocentric behaviors and narcissistic qualities as well as poor impulse control.

This website serves as an objective reference source for the science and art of Body Language/Nonverbal Communication. In an effort to be both practical and academic, many examples from/of varied cultures, politicians, professional athletes, legal cases, public figures, etc., are cited in order to teach and illustrate both the interpretation of others’ body language as well as the projection of one’s own nonverbal skills in many different contexts – not to advance any political, religious or other agenda.
