9 gestures for taking advantage to improve

 

1. Keep good posture


Posture is more important than anything else. There is an advantage that sitting in good posture while working improves concentration and attentiveness. By moderately using muscles, your concentration improves and decreases easy mistakes. Working with slouching posture likely to scatter your attention, so be careful especially when you are tired.

People are watching standing position more than you think. Walking in good speed with good posture makes you look smart, but holding your chest out too much makes you look disgraceful. Just put a little tension to your breast muscle.

Also, there are data revealing that making a difficult decision with good posture gives you confidence. Postures and feelings are related closely. You may feel tired in the beginning, but you will soon get used to it and can keep good posture without notice.

 

2. Avoid repeating like a parrot


Some people suggest parrotry as a way to improve communication, but it is the first step for people who are really bad at communicating. Usually, answering many times in parrot fashion give impression that you do not understand.

Those who are not thinking tend to answer by repeating the same thing, followed by rough opinions or questions. People would think “S/he does not really understand”. When people talk, there are always some points they want to be understood.

For example, a person says “I went all the way to Chiba prefecture to eat noodle”. To answer “That sounds nice, was it good?” or “You went all the way to Chiba for noodle?” makes a big difference in conversation that follows.

Many people feel awkwardness caused by a little gap in conversation, so avoid repeating like a parrot and try to find important points in conversation.

 

3. Type quietly 


When you make loud noise with keyboard, people around you can’t concentrate. People who type like slamming tend to have fierce character, or appealing that they are working hard.

Some of them make noise without notice, so try to fix that habit. The point is to keep both hands at certain position and move just the first and the second joints of fingers to type.

You should be careful especially when hitting the same key twice and when hitting the Enter key. You may feel good when hitting Enter key hard, but it is only you and people around you are annoyed. Smoothly typing, not slamming, at keyboard make you look skillful and won’t bother others. Try to type quietly.

4. Avoid putting hands in pockets


More people put their hands in pockets as they get older, but impression gets worse if younger people do it. The reason for doing this is because it is easy posture, but it looks bossy, impudent, or relaxing too much. There is almost no advantage for it.

We are likely to put hands in pockets unconsciously especially when waiting in front of copy machine or while walking, so be careful.

 

5. Avoid rough gestures


People who have rough movements often make mistakes in work and not likely to be trusted. Slamming at the keyboard is the same. Also, making loud noise as you sit on a chair, opening and closing doors or drawers with noises, turning pages roughly, putting files on a desk with noises…there should be at least one such person at office.

These kinds of people tend to pretend to be busy even though they are not, and make impressive noise for nothing.
They are just giving negative impressions on us and have no advantages. Also they are doubted for their childhood environment so you should keep quiet gestures.

 

6. Keep good eating manner 


It’s not true that no one is watching you eating. Whether you are eating with them or eating separately, bad eating manner attracts attention.

Use chopsticks properly, don’t put elbow on a table, don’t chew with mouth open, don’t make noise, don’t eat like greedy, etc. Eating manners are all basic things. It is effective to film while you eat, and objectively see how you are eating. Eating manners are necessary with everyone, so be careful if you are not confident about it.

 

7. Write neatly


Memo you wrote in a hurry is unreadable …have you ever experienced it? It can cause mistakes in work, so take memos neatly.

Maybe it is only you that sees it, but someone might see it too. Write neatly so everyone can read. You need to practice to write neatly and fast.

 

8. Don’t touch hair


Don’t you play with your hair, or repeat tying and letting down hair meaninglessly? You may be unconscious, but it makes you look not concentrating and it is not sanitary.

If you can’t ignore your hair, tie it to hide tip of hair and make sure you don’t touch.Especially women tend to touch hair and men don’t understand it, so you should fix it as soon as possible.

 

9. Don’t twist a pen


It may be is a habit from school days to twist a pen. It makes noise when you drop a pen, and repeating to drop and pick up doesn’t look good. It is difficult to stop completely, but don’t keep twisting for a long time or challenge difficult ways to twist. Few times when you are deeply thinking may be acceptable. People are looking at you.
