Do you have good posture?
I've recently been trying to improve mine after reading about how much of an effect it can have on body language and self confidence, and I've been getting comments that I look taller, so I guess it's working.
I still have to work on my sitting posture though.
#2
I think I generally have pretty good posture unless I'm really tired and then I'll start to slump over a bit. What specifically did you read about postures effect on body language and from where?
#3
Yes, very. The sitting posture is a killer though. It's so easy to subconsciously start slouching.

No. I think I will eventually get a bad back and neck because of it.

I take the whole 'I don't care' approach

I'll sit there for hours on end entirely the wrong way up, just because I can't be bothered to move
It's over simplified, So what!

I usually stand with my back straight with my head held high and my chest out a bit.

My sleeping posture is absolute shit. My neck is all messed up after last night. ;_;

I have great standing posture but I always end up sitting funny in chairs. Being tall and having a pidgeon chest doesn't help, I just can't seem to fix it.

When I look over into my mirror from my comp chair I am just so slouched most of the time.

Pretty much every other article on Girlchase mentions it.

Cool I used to have the opposite of that
#11
I stand weird. I don't hunch forward but I lean back. Being tall is weird.

I also sit terribly.

Do they cite any legit studies or is it mostly just conjecture? I don't doubt that it's important because I make judgments on people based in part on their posture before I ever meet/talk to them but I'm curious if any real research has been done.
#14
Standing I'm fine. In an armchair I tend to slump down sometimes. And if I'm sitting on a bench or something I usually lean forward.

Just like every other article on there, no, but I think it's true. I know I judge people based on body language, especially what they do with their arms, and how much they're slouching.
#19
It used to be kinda off but once I started running and lifting a lot it's gotten much better.

Mine is circumstantial. If I'm sitting around it's really bad. If I'm playing sax or working on something serious, I have good sitting posture. Standing is alright I guess.

My sitting posture is below what it should be, but better than a lot of what I see from other people. My standing posture is normally okay but I have problems with my shoulders specifically. They tend to tense up (especially when sitting down) but it feels completely normal to me so I don't notice.

What can I do with my arms to keep you from judging me?

I have pretty good standing posture. Sitting is another story.

As far as bad posture goes, I really pick up on "forward head."



If I see I guy with that posture, usually accompanied by slumped shoulders and unkepmt hair, I feel like I could direct and control any interaction we have.

Tip for those working on proper standing posture: Going from slouching to proper chest out, shoulders back posture feels like your trying to be a douchey prick. It's not, just look in a mirror and you'll see that you look normal.

EDIT: If you have decent pecs than this problem goes away, because you want to show them off. I started working out a bit and got a bit more definition (nothing to brag about) and I found myself just doing it naturally much more often.

Theres a wikipedia article on it...

I have good posture, but that's not always true when I'm sitting down. I try my best when I'm sitting down because I don't want a hunchback. It comes naturally when standing thanks to years of ballet and generally good self confidence. And formidable grandmother who would force me to sit straight. Not that I mind, cos I have good posture.

I walk like the right picture, but my nek has grown a bit in that way, can't help it.

My pops would slap me upside the head if I didn't have good posture, so I developed it.

My posture is horrible. After years of slouching while play guitar and playing video games I'm pretty much ****ed.

I'm sure being overweight doesn't help either, but I'll be changing that soon.

Edit: I just noticed one of the problems is that my monitor is too low. I NEED to hunch over to look at it directly. I need to raise that monitor up about 6 inches so I can sit up straight.

although sitting not so much since i sit or lay for maximum comfort. rarely does that coincide with perfect posture. i believe that sitting with perfect posture makes you look very frigid, formal, and uninviting. chill out, kick back and actually relax so people can truly be at ease around you bro. lifes short yolo keep is comfy.

My posture is much better than it used to be, but not great. I try my best to have good posture, but slip up so I guess I middle.

Gotta get on top of that man. Good posture, super-moderator on the largest guitar-tablature website's forum, that's the full package man.

I think my back arches back a little more than it should, causing my head to look a little more forward than I'd like, but my posture doesn't really look awkward or weird so it's a'ight.

I tend to slouch when I'm sitting down. I guess it makes me feel more relaxed. Standing I have decent posture though.

My posture used to be complete shit.
It's still not great, but I'm working on it.

I never had good posture, and I think I can attribute that to very low self-esteem. I've noticed that I've started taking more pride in myself recently, and my posture is getting better. Still not great because of how conditioned I am to slouching, plus I'm still dealing with some issues, but baby-steps, you know?
