The Reading Body Language IQ Matrix explores how to better recognize and understand the message that various hand, arm, leg and torso gestures send out in social situations. It is said that 80 percent of the conversation we have with another person comes through the body, while only 20 percent comes through the words people speak. We typically think through the words we will speak, but rarely if ever do we choose how to use our body during a conversation. In fact, many people are probably not even aware of the powerful subtle message their body is sending. This message typically reveals their hidden thoughts, feelings, opinions and motives without their conscious awareness. Working through this map will help you to better read these signals so that you can more effectively read people’s true intentions, and subsequently adapt your conversation style.

Who is this map for?

  • Anyone who wants to quickly recognize people’s thoughts and feelings through their gestures.
  • Anyone who would like to better understand how their body language is coming across to others.
  • Anyone who is fascinated to learn more about the impact of body language on communication.

    The Reading Body Language IQ Matrix explores how to better recognize and understand the message that various hand, arm, leg and torso gestures send out in social situations. It is said that 80 percent of the conversation we have with another person comes through the body, while only 20 percent comes through the words people speak. We typically think through the words we will speak, but rarely if ever do we choose how to use our body during a conversation. In fact, many people are probably not even aware of the powerful subtle message their body is sending. This message typically reveals their hidden thoughts, feelings, opinions and motives without their conscious awareness. Working through this map will help you to better read these signals so that you can more effectively read people’s true intentions, and subsequently adapt your conversation style.

    All five branches of the Reading Body Language map explore various gestures that people typically use during their conversations with others. These body language gestures come across in the way they use their arms, elbows, fingers, hands, legs, feet, torso, shoulders, chest, and neck. These gestures must of course not be taken in isolation. In order to get to the heart of what a person is thinking and feeling it is important to look out for a combination of matching gestures that tell a consistent story before jumping to any conclusions.

    As you work your way through this map you will come to understand how specific kinds of gestures that people use can be interpreted. As a result you will more readily recognize what a person is thinking, feeling and emotionalizing from within when their words don’t seem to tell the full story.

    Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your daily interactions with others and you will progressively grow more confident in your ability to read people’s body language. Moreover, with this understanding in mind you will become more consciously aware of your own body language and of how you’re coming across to others during a conversation. As a result you will be able to make adjustments to ensure that your words match the message that your body is sending.

  • Reading People

    $7.00

    The Reading People IQ Matrix explores how to better recognize and understand people’s nonverbal signals. When we communicate with others we do so on two levels. We first communicate at a verbal level using words, phrases, questions and sentences. Secondly we communicate on a nonverbal level through our gestures, body language and facial expressions. Understanding these nonverbal cues can help us to quickly recognize what people are potentially thinking, feeling and emotionalizing internally. Furthermore it helps us to better understand people’s motives and intentions within any social situation. This specific map explores how to recognize and decipher eight common ways people can come across during a social interaction.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who typically struggles to recognize people’s nonverbal language patterns.
    • Anyone who would like to better understand people’s underlying motives and intentions.
    • Anyone who wants to better understand their own nonverbal communication tendencies.

    The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.


  • Reading Facial Gestures

    $7.00

    The Reading Facial Gestures IQ Matrix explores how to better recognize and understand the meaning of various facial expressions and gestures in other people. We are typically very conscious of the way we express ourselves verbally. The words we speak communicate to others what’s on our mind. However, people don’t always say what’s on their mind. In fact, people may hold back and refrain from speaking their mind in various social situations, or may even consciously choose to mislead us with their choice of words. As such, their words will often not reveal what they are thinking and feeling internally. However, what’s hidden within still expresses itself externally through people’s facial gestures in numerous ways. Therefore oftentimes we can get a pretty good understanding of what’s on a person’s mind through a simple observation of their facial gestures.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who has been burnt way too many times before when taking people on their word.
    • Anyone who wants to better understand whether or not people are being upfront and honest.
    • Anyone who would like to know how to read people’s facial gestures more effectively.

    When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first.


  • Reading Emotions

    $7.00

    The Reading Emotions IQ Matrix explores how to recognize several common human emotions using facial expressions and other nonverbal cues. The emotions we experience within often manifest themselves in how we express ourselves externally. Whether it comes through our facial expressions, hand gestures, body language or physiological responses, every emotional experience brings with it key indicators that can be recognized by others. Understanding how to recognize the emotions of another person will allow you to adapt your communication style to better empathize with people. In this way you can create deeper bonds that will help you gain more influence and respect in other people’s eyes.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who typically struggles to recognize the emotions that people tend to experience.
    • Anyone who would like to develop more empathy and understanding of human emotions.
    • Anyone who has a deep passion for learning about nonverbal communication.

    Irene Claremont de Castillejo

    Emotion always has its roots in the unconscious and manifests itself in the body.


  • Nonverbal Communication

    $7.00

    The Nonverbal Communication IQ Matrix explores how to better recognize the intricacies and impact of our nonverbal language. When we interact with others we typically pay attention to the words someone speaks in order to gather an understanding of the message they are trying to convey. However, by only attending to verbal cues we miss a large portion of that message that people often communicate nonverbally. For instance, facial expressions, mannerisms, hand gestures, eye patterns and body language as a whole helps support the words a person uses to convey their message. Understanding how to recognize these nonverbal cues will help you to dig below the surface communication of words and delve deeper into a person’s hidden thoughts, feelings, motives and intentions.

    Who is this map for?

    • Anyone who typically struggles to recognize people’s nonverbal language patterns.
    • Anyone who would like to become more observant and aware of nonverbal cues.
    • Anyone who wants to understand how to read people’s body language more effectively.
