If you’d like people to see you as being more trustworthy, you need to watch your body language. So what can you do? According to rd.com, you should:

  • maintain eye contact
  • uncross your arms and legs
  • sit in front of your desk rather than behind it
  • touch a person lightly on their elbow or shoulder (I actually like doing this, but it’s not acceptable everywhere, so one needs to be very careful!)
  • smile and nod
  • keep the palms of your hands open
  • sit at the same level
