Greensboro, NC -- Do you consider yourself an expert on reading people?  Career Consultant Joyce Richman says that's a good skill, but in an interview don't take those cue as fact.

For example, if the interview crosses his arm, don't' assume he disagrees with what you're saying.  Richman says ask him directly. Say, "I noticed you crossed your arms when I was talking.  Do you disagree with what I was saying?"

On the flip side, don't assume a interviewers nodding means he agrees with you.  He may just be showing you he's paying attention.
