You've likely heard that body language accounts for up to 55% of how we communicate, but reading non-verbal cues isn't just about broad strokes. The same gesture can indicate a number of different things depending on context. In this post, we're going to take a look at three common situations in which non-verbal cues are especially important—detecting lies, going on a date, and interviewing for a job—then explain how to interpret body language more accurately so that you can read between the lines when a person's words aren't necessarily conveying the way that they honestly feel.

My problem is that I start working on a project, finish chapter one, and decide I'm not happy with it. So I revise it, and then I revise it again, and again, and again, and then I rewrite it, and revise it, and so on, ad infinitum.
