Learn body language
A person’s body language can tell you a lot about their state of mind. Carefully observe a person and see how he behaves in a particular situation. You can learn what it means if a person is clenching and unclenching his fists and the way he is moving around can tell you a lot about him. Even the eyes of a person can tell you the story. A person when excited tends to have bulging eyes and there is a very notable shine in his eyes. You can tell from someone’s eyes whether they are interested in having a conversation with you or not. Nervous people usually do not make eye contact while in a conversation and people who have something to hide, also avoid making direct eye contact. Similarly, nervous people bite their nails when tensed and their shoulders are very stiff during a conversation.
Put yourself in another’s place
Scientist have proved that neurons in human brains can act in a very strange manner and if you put yourself in another person’s place and think from his perspective rather than yours, your mind will start working as it is not yours but his. Another thing about putting yourself in another’s place is that this way you are in a better place to figure out the feelings of others and finding the reasons of their troubles gets easy. You can also anticipate reactions and learn how to tackle them, making mindreading a lot easier than it actually is.
Relax your mind
You cannot expect to read minds of others if you have a troubled mind yourself. In order to read minds, you need to have a relaxed mind. So relax your mind before you practice this skill and do not let your personal stuff halt your progress. And don’t forget to practice all of it because only then you will be able to read minds.
