Shy, outgoing? Is it difficult for you to speak in public? ... Many children begin to form their personality very early, and the gestures and tics that they have and do without wanting to, give them away. In the same way that a shy child will have a hard time keeping an eye on another person, an extrovert will show much more 'impudence' when interacting with others.
Our body speaks, so you just have to learn to observe. For example, we can see many things in the way we sit. Check out this fun quiz: We tell you what your child is like according to the way they sit.
Take a good look at these images ... Do you see your child identified in any? Or do you see yourself identified? (Remember that this test also works for adults).
It is true that we change positions many times, but there is always one that we usually use more often, especially if there are more people in front. Imagine that you are in a meeting: what position would you take? Or focused on your son, who is at the house of some of your friends and must be seated. How would you do it: cross-legged, straight, out or in? ... Once you find the answer, look for the meaning here:
Posture A (With the legs turned in or apart): The legs are widely separated or rather, the knees are widely separated (the legs may tend inwards), denotes lack of concentration or problems to maintain attention for a while. It is typical of more active children, somewhat nervous and perhaps somewhat 'unruly'. This does not mean they have problems at school. What's more, they can be very smart and creative children, but with trouble organizing their rowdy thoughts. Perhaps there are so many that they cannot control them! In adults, it is also indicative of people seeking comfort.
Posture B (Cross-legged): A very typical posture of the most dreamy. They are very imaginative and creative children, somewhat absent-minded and with a lot of passion for what they are excited about. They love to start projects and have a highly developed critical thinking. That is, they like to go 'their own way', and think for themselves. They may be a bit rebellious, but this is because they firmly believe in their ideas and plan to defend them tooth and nail. In adults it is also related to people with great creativity and a strong imagination that sometimes makes others see them as someone 'different'.
Posture C (Knees together): Usually typical of fun and creative children. They like to laugh and stay out of trouble. They are positive and have no trouble making friends. However, in adults, it can also mean lack of maturity, as it is more related to the world of children. They are sincere and the problem is that sometimes they speak without thinking, which leads them to commit the odd 'gaffe'.
Posture D (Straight legs): A boy who sits with his legs straight? You may be thinking that it is not possible, but yes, there are. It is common among orderly, disciplined, and highly intelligent children. They are children who seem more mature for their age. And although on the outside they seem rational, responsible and very serious, they are sensitive children who tend to hide their feelings and can suffer mistakes or punishment much sooner, since they do not like conflicts at all (neither with others nor with themselves) . All of this is similar in adulthood.
This time there is a slight variant more common among adults: sit with your legs together but leaning to one side. This indicates that the person is usually very orderly and that they also know that everything has a moment, so they organize everything to perfection, meticulously, so that nothing escapes them. Without a doubt, great strategists.
And yes, we already know that younger children sit in many other ways: with their legs crossed, on their thighs, in a 'W' shape ... But they do that when they are on the floor, and they are not most recommended postures. Remember that some ways of sitting can negatively affect your back. Prevent your child from sitting 'any way', and especially correct him if he sits on one leg or in a 'W' shape.
