Body language plays a very important role in the business of Fortune Tellers. They are very good at identifying hidden feelings and concealed thoughts and can tell you exactly what you are feeling. Have you ever noticed that all the “Fortune Tellers” have regular clients?
I have actually come across a case, where a police officer from high rank had given resignation from his job, paid the Fortune Teller in lakhs, because that the person could foresee the officer contesting the election and winning. The ex- officer lost his job and the election. I have seen some of my close relatives and family members going to people, who could tell about our “Future”. Believe me, I’m not an iconoclastic here. The point is to put forward an opinion that these people are very well versed in decoding expressions and body language. Let us go through, some regular statements and relate to the respective gesture or posture.
“I see that you are anxious about something”.
This typically means you have taken less space while sitting. Most probably you are sitting at the edge of the chair, not taking the full back support. When you take less space, you automatically look anxious or vice versa, because it is a low power stance . Little bit of change in your sitting posture may convey power and confidence.
There is someone in your family ( they would also tell you the gender), who is having….. ( some common medical condition like skin problem, hair problem, cough and cold).
Then what they actually do is let your mind wander with your own imagination. The beautiful thing about our brain is, once it finds the connection , it automatically establishes the trust also and vice versa. Our brain roams and actually finds out that person who has that “medical condition”. One thing to note here is, you will never find a person who will be very accurate. For ex- Your father is suffering from the lymphosarcoma of the intestine in 3rd stage. Yeah! You got my point.
There is a sign of accident in your home.
Once they know, you have young adult or you are the young one, they would identify your driving or riding habits. Obviously, you will be having car /bike keys, helmet anything on the table or the room. Now, we all know, that when we ride or drive , there is always a possibility of an accident, we don’t get scared of that. The moment the person tells you that, acute fear would flash on your face, and then you would hear, don’t worry, I have a solution to that
I see your son/daughter has higher education/job.
Because most of the parents go to them for “career counseling” as well. The parents want to hear higher education or good job and they are told the same. When want to hear something, it shows on our face. We call it micro expressions, it is as short as 1/10th of a second. It is very hard to catch, and you need to be trained on that. So, if it is the education or job you are discussing, you will flash a micro expression of happiness, which would help them decode that you want to hear some good news.
Wear this stone/ring/bracelet/amulet
Again, no stone or ring works, until you do. What they make you believe is that you don’t have to do anything, the stone will do. It is called Placebo effect. When you are made to believe in certain things and you start behaving that way. That is why we have not only these rings or stones, we also have “lucky” objects with us. When we feel that this object is going to help me win, we will work automatically thinking that it is the stone which is helping.
So, my dear friends, before going to your “Fortune Teller” next time, just think about how good they can be in decoding Body Language, Expressions and Psychology.
