Nonverbal Communication
Body Language is a type of non-verbal communication in which physical behavior, as opposed to words, is used to express or convey information. Such behavior includes facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, touch and the use of space. Body language exists in both animals and humans, but this article focuses on interpretations of human body language. It is also known as kinesics.

Nonverbal Communication between people is communication through sending and receiving wordless clues. It includes the use of visual cues such as body language (kinesics), distance (proxemics) and physical environments/appearance, of voice (paralanguage) and of touch (haptics). It can also include chronemics (the use of time) and oculesics (eye contact and the actions of looking while talking and listening, frequency of glances, patterns of fixation, pupil dilation, and blink rate).
Nonverbal Communication
Sign Language

Gesture is a form of non-verbal communication or non-vocal communication in which visible bodily actions communicate particular messages, either in place of, or in conjunction with, speech. Gestures include movement of the hands, face, or other parts of the body. Gestures differ from physical non-verbal communication that does not communicate specific messages, such as purely expressive displays, proxemics, or displays of joint attention. Gestures allow individuals to communicate a variety of feelings and thoughts, from contempt and hostility to approval and affection, often together with body language in addition to words when they speak. Gesture is a movement of part of the body, especially a hand or the head, to express an idea or meaning.

When people believe that no one is watching them, people tend to make more obvious body language gestures, which some can even be easily distinguishable from the corner of your eye. But even gestures are not always accurate in determining a persons intentions or beliefs, because people could just be reacting to a situation without even being fully aware of how they are reacting, or how their reaction is being understood. Just like any language, things need to be verified in order to accurately interpret the message. Observation Flaws

Blushing is the reddening of a person's face due to psychological reasons. It is normally involuntary and triggered by emotional stress, such as that associated with embarrassment, anger, or romantic stimulation.

Pupils dilate when we are interested in someone. If you want someone to like you gaze in their eyes.
Our feet point towards people we are interested in. if you want someone to trust you let them speak first.
If you want someone to believe you, then nod your head when speaking.
If you want someone to like you, then mirror their expressions and gestures.
Blue clothing could make you seem trustworthy and secure Red clothing could make you seem dangerous, but also seem loving.
Tilting your head back shows more dominant, while tilting your head down could mean more submissive.

Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

Fear Mongering

This list below is what the TSA thinks are the Signs a person displays that Might indicate that they are a Terrorist.
Exaggerated Yawing.  (a tired traveler is not that unusual, it's called jet lag?)
Excessive complaints about the screening process.  (who hasn't complained about the excessiveness of the screening process)
Excessive throat clearing.  (give them a drink of water)
Widely open staring eyes.  (like when a man stares at a women on the street?)
Wearing improper attire for location.   (so fashion is now terrorism?)
Whistling as the individual approaches the screening process. (I can't be happy?)   whistle
Gazing down. (Like looking down at your cell phone, some people prefer not to make eye contact, especially with molesters)
Exaggerated or repetitive grooming gesture.  (don't touch yourself?)
Face pale from recent shaving of beard.  (no grooming before traveling?)
Rubbing or wringing of hands.  (offer them a coat) 

So the TSA knows that you can't tell a terrorist just by how a person looks or acts. This profiling is so vague that they can accuse and target anyone they want, and at the same time, violate a persons privacy and their rights. So this list of signs is more about them saying, "Don't say anything bad about the TSA or we will treat you like a terrorist", so the TSA is basically a terrorist organization themselves. Gestapo This list looks like some idiots way of trying to control peoples behavior, while at the same time, force TSA Airport Screening Officers to act disrespectful towards people, and act disrespectfully towards the US Constitution?  WTF

I am more interested in the TSA's ability to recognize Disguises?  And also to recognize Propaganda?  And also to recognize their own Ignorance?  I don't know about you, but I would feel a lot safer if my security officers were more intelligent and better trained, just sayin. And don't try tell me that you don't have the money to improve training, we know how much money you've taken, so you have more then enough.

Why are there so many names on the U.S. government's terrorist list?
In September 2007, the Inspector General of the Justice Department reported that the Terrorist Screening Center (the FBI-administered organization that consolidates terrorist watch list information in the United States) had over 700,000 names in its
database as of April 2007 - and that the list was growing by an average of over 20,000 records per month.

10 years almost 200 employees and contract workers of the Department of Homeland Security have taken nearly $15 million in bribes while being paid to protect the nation’s borders and enforce immigration laws. Records show that Border Patrol officers and customs agents, who protect more than 7,000 miles of the border and deal most directly with drug cartels and smugglers, have taken the most in bribes, about $11 million.

"People who give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -- Benjamin Franklin

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing." -- Helen Keller

"Man must exist in a state of balance between risk and safety. Pure risk leads to self-destruction. Pure safety leads to stagnation. In between lies survival and progress."

"When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself."

"People are more about what they hide than what they show."

"What if everyone around you is just you at another moment in time? Most people know that everything is connected in one way or another, so maybe we all are just part of the same thing at different moments in time, we're one, and separation is just an illusion"
