Harness The Power Of Another...
Harnessing the power o other people’s eye accessing cues who aren’t nec-essarily the threat in your mind can be a very powerul tool in your arsenal.It is because eye accessing cues are so naturally ingrained in our ability tocommunicate that it is really difcult

to undo them. In other words, it canbe very hard to access a dierent theme when you are looking in the wrongdirection.
By watching the out o place and out o character body language in the peoplearound you, you can very accurately judge what is going on in your blind spots.ake everyone’s individual personality into account and ask yoursel i anything seems odd about how they are moving or acting. I you get several diferences rommultiple people, you’ll be able to make good use o your peripheryand position yoursel to assess the potential threat without tipping them of that you noticed.
I I wanted to think o something that was in my memory, it would be very difcult or me to remember something i I was to look to my le. Tis isbecause my memory accessing cue is located to the right.
17 Really, really, really, really, really, really, difcult!

So keeping this in mind, we tend to understand subconsciously that wereally have limited control over our eye accessing cues and that these are really powerul windows as to what our true intentions are. I people begin to hidethese eye accessing cues then you know that they are trying to hide their trueintentions.One thing that I have noticed which happens a lot, is that people tend totry and hide their eye accessing cues by doing what is called “orced” or “stra-tegic blinking.”Forced blinking is basically whenever someone blinks intentionally rightas they are accessing a dierent part o their brains in an eort to keep yourom seeing which part o their brain that they are accessing. Tey do notwant you to know that they are moving to a dierent accessing cue. Usually itis an emotion that is designed to hide a vulnerability at that moment. So, usu-ally, the eye accessing cue that they try to hide is Looking Down.You will be able to tell by watching someone whether or not they are blink-ing specically in one spot, one sentence, or even one word. Ten you will beable to get a pretty good sense i they are trying to hide how they eel or whatthey are thinking about that one thing. Keep in mind, that i you continueasking the same question and end up getting the same response, or they keeptrying to hide the same eye accessing cue, then you know that they are tryingto hide something.
Tis does not necessarily mean that they are trying to take advantage o you. So please don’t assume that. It may simply be that they eel insecure aboutsomething and are trying to hide it or that reason, which is completely nor-mal. But either way, be aware at that moment and make sure that triggers a redag in your mind. Remember that the eyes are indeed the windows to the soul.

Moving beyond the eyes, let’s move down to the lower chest or diaphragmarea. Something that everyone does when they eel uncomortable, or eel thatthey may potentially be attacked, is to cover up their diaphragm. Tis is com-monly reerred to as ‘chest protection.’
I you want to see real-lie examples o uncomortable and emotionally submissivebody language, get up and head to any bar... At all... When you get there, hold up this book and match this picture to as many guys as you can. Once you start to recognize the nuances in body language, it will be very apparent who is trulycondent and who is aking condence and hoping that no one notices.
We will cover our diaphragm with our arms or with some random objectduring chest protection. I want to go over what this
could 
mean as well as whatthis
defnitely
means.
 It
could 
mean that they are emotionally unstable.
