Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 3931: Marine Le Pen's Default Configuration (and What it Tells Us) - Body Language and Emotional Intelligence (PHOTOS)

Politicians are, to a large degree, performers. They are also (very) human. Thus it's profoundly important to pay close attention to their default facial expressions, as well as whole-body configurations - for this will give a look into their psyches'.

One extremely common body language pose of Marine Le Pen's - is standing with her arms spread wide and elevated - so much so that her elbows are not flexed, but straight.

Her feet are also held together - which, of course, is very common and a social-norm for many women.

Yet with her arms held so widely and high, many people have said that she is attempting to nonverbally and metaphorically invoke Christ.

Note also that her hands are uniformly held in a palms-up manner with her fingers held together (which is again, more analogous to Christ on the cross).

Even if one discounts deliberate (semi) subliminal Christ comparisons - when a person exhibits regular pattern of behaviors such as: taking up more space/"making them self big" - by spreading their arms wide, spreading legs wide (when standing or while sitting [seated crotch display or "man-spreading"], hyperbolic/exaggerated facial expressions, talking louder than is typical for the social context, etc., - these are significant signs of Narcissism/Narcissistic Personality Disorder
