Tuesday tips : Sitting Etiquette for Men – which are yours? 🙂
Have you ever given much thought to the way that you sit? Because of non-verbal communication, the way you sit sends messages. In other words, the way you sit is the way you are received by others.
Credits to : Aaron Marino of alpha m. who gives examples of ways to sit and WHAT MESSAGES are conveyed:
Wide Leg- most offensive because it sends the superior and overly confident message. The look is also low class and low budget.
Cross Figure Four- great posture for interviews; however, exposing the bottom of your shoe is offensive to some cultures.
Knee Cross- a bit more comfortable and most professional. You sit up straighter and confident.
Simple Ankle Cross- keep knees in check with a bit of a gap.
