Body Language Analysis No. 4282: When Public Displays of Affection are More Frequent than those in Private - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

We all know of people (and perhaps we're one of them) who have an aversion to public displays of affection (colloquially referred to as PDAs). Yet, in private, these same people exhibit many affection displays - in the range of what most professionals would say classify as healthy and "within normal limits".

But the opposite pattern also occurs - when a person publicly displays affection such as hand holding, kissing, hugging, etc., - but does so much less frequently in private. This behavior pattern is an affectation. It's indicative of a person who wants to show "ownership" of their partner - but who's deficient in affection. Crucially it's also associated with low sincerity and low empathy. If you're at the receiving end of this behavior - you're being used.

A person with low sincerity and low empathy is, in a nutshell, a sociopath (Antisocial Personality Disorder).
