This is smart information. While realizing I'm on a steep learning curve when it comes to many survival skills, I've often found comfort in my education and continuing study of social psychology and body language.
Take what people say with a grain of salt. Just watch.
Another thing to keep in mind when trying to understand the intent of a stranger is that whether we want to or not, our bodies "leak" information we want to conceal. Watch the feet. They will always point in the direction the person prefers to go in, or where their deepest concern is. In men in particular, watch their chest - no matter which direction the rest of their body is favoring, a man's chest and shoulders always face what they deem to be most important in the room.
Learn the difference between a genuine and a manufactured smile. Women are typically more "natural" with this skill, but once taught what to look for, anyone can do it.
So awesome! I knew about the smiles and even more broadly fake/over exaggerated facial expressions. I did not know about the feet and chest though! Great addition!
