Would YOU talk to someone who looked like this?

After a recent speech to Cornerstorne Financial Group's agency meeting, a woman in the audience talked about one of her self-admitted barriers to communication.

"I'm guilty of crossing my arms. I do it all the time! And I know it's a communication no-no; but I can't help it because it's comfortable and warm for me."

My response was, "Perhaps...but that probably means it's NOT comfortable and warm for other people when they're trying to talk to you."

Speaking of which, check out this related article from 2003 called Why Aren't You Talking To Me?


How do you perceive people who cross their arms?
