Those who are well groomed, dress properly, and hold themselves confidently tend to earn a salary that is 8-10 percent higher than their lesser-controlled peers.

Recently, My Colleges and Careers had the opportunity to interview body language expert and author of several books, Joe Navarro. In the interview, Joe Navarro talked about how body language can be a particularly useful tool for college students as they develop both intellectually and emotionally. The interview was posted as a series of three articles on the My Colleges and Careers Education blog. My Colleges and Careers provides resources, such as a degree finding tools and an online education blog, to help students and prospective students be successful in earning online college degrees.
Sarah Ward, writer and Social Media expert for mycollegesandcareers.com, interviewed Mr. Navarro about the basics of reading body language. In relation to college students, Mr. Navarro pointed out that they should be aware that, “the first thing is realizing that we're constantly transmitting.” He recommends that students learn to act like leaders when they walk into a classroom, which is something they can transmit to others without saying a word. As far as other in-class behaviors go, he recommends that students avoid appearing in class with sloppy attire, poorly groomed, bad breath, and a sarcastic attitude. Teachers will be able to sense which students are giving them proper respect by how they act in class.
Another interesting point that Mr. Navarro mentioned in his interview with My Colleges and Careers was that the more control over body language students have, the more successful they are likely to be. Those who are well groomed, dress properly, and hold themselves confidently tend to earn a salary that is 8-10 percent higher than their lesser-controlled peers. He also explained that body language reflects emotional and social intelligence. Thus, it is important to develop good habits in the young adult years. In his final piece of advice for college students, Mr. Navarro said, “Don't focus on yourself. Focus on others. Pick up on the body language that you admire, you like and respect in other people and truly try to mirror that.”
