Body Language Analysis No. 4205: Chloe Kim, Albert Einstein, and Creativity - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (PHOTOS)

What do Chloe Kim and Albert Einstein have in common? Besides both being geniuses (one athletic and the other in physics), in these two photos - they are each displaying an extreme derivative of a Loose Tongue Jut. More specifically, this nonverbal display is known the Wide Open Tongue Jut.

The Wide Open Tongue Jut (WOTJ) - just as it sounds (and are well-exemplified here) occurs when the mouth is momentarily widely open with the tongue extending dramatically. This behavior sends signals of self-deprecating emotions - but considerably more so than the Loose Tongue Jut. Yet there is an additional element of unabashed playfulness and disinhibition with the WOTJ.

It's helpful to think of the WOTJ as a Playful Nonverbal Version of Sorry Not Sorry.

Fascinatingly, individuals who frequently display the Wide Open Tongue Jut - will have high sincerity quotients - and also are significantly more creative.

It's crucial to stress that the Tight Tongue Jut has a completely different meaning than the Loose Tongue Jut or the Wide Open Tongue Jut.

Congratulations to Chloe Kim - the winner of the 2018 Gold Medal in the Women's snowboard halfpipe. Only seventeen, she's also a four-time X-Games Gold Medalist.

The above image was taken on Monday, shortly after her final Gold Medal run in PyeongChang.
