Personal Protection Tip: Broadcast Only Positive Body Language Cues

Personal Protection Tip: Are you broadcasting signals to violent predators that you are safe to victimize? Researchers have consistently published studies that show that non-verbal communication accounts for about 90 percent of what "we say" to others around us. Couple that fact with the results from a classic and widely lauded scientific study, conducted by researchers Betty Grayson and Morris I. Stein, we can easily and readily determine how a person's body language broadcasts hints about his vulnerability.

In the aforementioned study, the researchers asked convicted criminals to view a video of different pedestrians walking down a busy street and to pick out which persons they would most likely rob or rape. Common characteristics of the people selected for victimization include the following: distracted mental state, weak posture, slow and unsure gait, and length of stride. Expected characteristics such as size, gender, and age were not significant. Thus, one way to flunk a predator's "Victim Selection Test" is to be aware, walk upright with head held up, and with a fluid confident brisk stride.
