6 Ways to read the mind



Reading someone else’s mind is not only something negative related to the possibility of manipulating other people, but it can also be used as a way of better understanding the other’s point of view and behaviour.

Here are the six ways to read someone else’s mind:

1. Analyzing the other’s body language:
posture, hands and eyes’ movement…

2. Observing the other’s breath:
chopped, relaxed…

3. Looking at the other’s eyes:
pupils dilated (sign of interest), constrict…

4. Listening to the other’s tone and speed of voice:
slow, fast, loud, whispered…

5. Spending time with the other person:
listening, speaking and paying attention at his/her reactions…

6. Making sure you aren’t influencing the other’s mind with your own behaviour:
the way you approach is crucial. You should, for instance, pay attention to use open ended observations which are able to open up a real conversation: try to ask “you seem in a good mood today…”, instead of “how’s it going?”.
Then, consider that the more you are aware of yourself, the more you will be able to read other people’s mind.
