Body Language Analysis No. 4321: Donald Trump and The Queen - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (PHOTOS)

On Friday, Donald Trump visited briefly with Queen Elizabeth II. Royal protocol dictates that you should never walk in front of the Queen - nor should you ever turn your back to her. The American President managed to do both - after he had kept her waiting for fifteen minutes.

It may seem obvious to most people that etiquette is profoundly important when one visits royalty. And the next time you drop by Windsor Castle, you'd be would be well-advised to practice and prepare. However, when you forget the proper protocol - it's always wise to let empathy direct your actions. That's assuming, of course, that you have empathy. After all, the Queen is 92 years old, was walking on uneven ground - and, theoretically, another leader should be trying to build rapport - not insulting her.

Now, occasionally, even well-mannered, empathetic people will be caught up in anxiety or distractions and walk in front of their wife, husband, or significant other. However, when this becomes a pattern - when a person consistently walks in front of their partner - it's a behavior that's strongly correlated with narcissistic personality disorder.

In addition, when a man routinely walks in front of his girlfriend or wife - it's a strong sign of objectification. This is a man who thinks of her as something to be used - as property, rather than an equal.

Moreover, men who physically or emotionally abuse their partners will routinely walk in front - rather than at their sides.

SUMMARY: If one wasn't familiar with Donald Trump, they might conclude that his act of walking in front of Queen Elizabeth II as well as turning his back on her - was due to him being unfamiliar with Royal protocol, having a bad day, or just simple rudeness. President Trump, however, demonstrates a long-term pattern of this behavior with all his wives and other women. Such frequency is highly correlative with Narcissistic Personality Disorder - which, of course, includes his absence of empathy.
