    My sociology teacher and I have frequently debated on whether there are any innate parts of nonverbal communication and body language. She is a social constructionist and my belief is that some of it is innate but the vast majority is socialized. I was wondering could you shed some light on that debate?

    what is the best way to increase your non verbal awareness? or to say it another way, to increase your mastery in body language?

    Do psychopaths have ability to show universal emotions, as we know microexpressions to be? are they more likely to know when to mimic ‘right’ emotions and mask ‘wrong’ emotions. Are they easier to read in an interview or harder, utilising microexpression training? For both murderous tendency psychopath and corporate psychopath, cold, callous, no empathy.
