※ So you’re talking to someone and they suddenly lean towards you that’s a really good sign. 

※ If a person is leaning away that’s just the opposite reaction they don’t want to get close and personal with you. 

※ If they’re doing it while sitting they also must be bored with the conversation and uncomfortable with you. 

※ Are they standing up straight with shoulders proudly pulled back, this power position is a way of saying I’m the boss, it’s like taking up as much space as you can to show your significance.
