There was so much in the Harry and Meghan interview that as a body language expert, I just had to talk about it a little more in this newsletter.
Since you have likely seen me speak, you know that we talk a lot about the head nod and head shake. For western people a nod generally means yes and a shake generally means no. But not all the time. There are rarely absolutes in body language. There’s an art and a science to it.
In Prince Harry’s interview below the art comes into play. If you just compare his body language to his words I believe you’d be wrong when deciding if he will always love his father or not.
It’s important to take his tone into account. Here we see a guy who truly feels bad about the situation. That’s what the head shake is all about. If he was more firm or convincing with his tone, the analysis would be different and I’d lean towards that he won’t always love his dad.
Always remember that there’s no hard and fast rules in body language analysis. As soon as you’re rigid in your analysis you will be wrong.
