8. Fidgeting


If you think a good strategy is to seemed bored, fidgeting is the way to go. If, on the other hand, you want to be perceived as engaged and interested, stop.

The best way to avoid this is to know yourself and how you fidget.

Don’t:

  • Tap your foot
  • Twirl your pen
  • Doodle
  • Pick at your nails or cuticles
  • Twirl your hair
  • Rub your hands together incessantly
  • Tap your fingers on a table
