Postures and body movements are unconscious forms of expressions and therefore they have a language of their own. We are un ware of our gestures and body movements most of the time, but other people can notice our gestures and movements if they pay attention to and know what they mean. An important thing to be noted here is that body language applies not only to the interviewer but also to the interviewee. Also, note that these gestures may happen throughout the conversation or a discussion and they change as the conversation progresses. The objective of paying attention to nonverbal communication is to help you change the direction of the conversation. If the person is showing negative gestures, then you need to change the topic by asking a new question or talking about something else.
