Human being is built in such a way that he or she continuously analyzes his feelings, emotions and reactions to external factors. With this statement in mind, we could conclude that all the individuals are to some extent psychologists of their own mind. No one can affect our behaviour and mental processes, but our own perception and self-analysis. The role of psychologist, on the other hand, is to help in gathering valuable data about various behavioural patterns among group of individuals and generalize this information for conceptual use and future reference.
One of the interesting aspects of psychology science is gestures. It is difficult to completely understand the person without taking into account his/her body language. It seems to be almost impossible to understand human habits and actions by gestures. While voice and speech provide psychologists with extensive knowledge through personal interpretation, emotions, tones and other attributes of the speech analysis, gestures are much more delicate in the message they can pass to the opponent.
Benefits that one can get from understanding the meaning of various gestures and reading them in different people are countless. First and the biggest, from my point of view, is the ability to identify a lie. Apart from that, gestures can provide the opponent with the information on the feelings, hidden emotions, comfort level and other elements of the communication process.
In spite of the fact that gesture science is much younger than psychology as a whole, it has already received significant attention in scientific literature and still has a great room for investigation. The purpose of this research paper is to analyse in practice gestures of anger and fear and provide extensive analysis of the set of movements that in conceptual terms represent the above two feelings.
