A week ago my publisher interviewed me. In fact, they did two interviews.
I don't know if you're into body language, but I find it very interesting. It seems to me I have different body language in each clip, yet they were done at the same time.
For instance, watch my eyes to see if I look from left to right or right to left. Little things like that are clues to what the interviewer is feeling.
Here's an interview about my new book, River Whispers.
Here's an interview about fishing with my mom.
Very interesting results.
In the first clip I was looking right and upward. This is a sign of creating and storytelling. That tells you a lot, doesn't it? Well, I was talking about my book.
In the second clip I looked left and down a great deal. This is a sign of recalling, remembering, and retrieving facts.
So to really make people think when you're interviewed look straight at the interviewer, not up or down, to the left or to the right.
Guess what that would reveal? I'll tell you Monday. :)
