I remember a while back; I could tell if someone was interested in a conversation. That was a big issue because I wasted valuable time on people who lack interest in me.
So today, I’m going to talk about interests and how to identify them. So you guys could save your valuable time and spend your time with people who are interested in you.
You always have to be aware of the person to whom you are talking. Their body language, the way they talk, and what they say.
However, you need to identify their baseline behavior. Sometimes they may show interest. However, in reality, it means nothing because it is a habit that they do.
What is baseline behavior?
Baseline Behavior is the behaviors that they frequently do.
Body Language Signs of Interests:
They Give You Eye Contact
We tend to look at people who we like. If you notice that they are giving you eye contact during the conversation.
They Tilt Their Head
This shows friendliness and that you are welcome.
Open Body Language
During a conversation, if you notice that the other body language is open. This shows that the person feels comfortable and likes you.
They Smile At You
When someone smiles at you, they are sending a friendly invitation. Also, sending a nice warming welcome showing that they like you.

Behavioral Signs of Interests:

When You Ask Them A Question. They Give You An Enthusiastic Answer
