The Investor’s Business Daily article Follow The People Signs said

Business leaders know how to read people — and be read positively. Gain an edge by paying attention to these subtle cues:
The limb look. Cross your arms, and others will perceive you as being guarded or disinterested. Kevin Hogan, author of “The Secret Language of Business,” advises that to clearly communicate confidence and ease, use a more open posture. Eye power. If you want to show an interest or a liking of someone, “split your eye contact between the other person and looking down,” Hogan told IBD.
Don’t look to the side or around the room. By returning your gaze to the eyes after looking down, you send a powerful “I’m interested” message.
Danger points. Don’t aim your finger at anyone, unless you have a big grin. “Pointing is a high-risk behavior,” Hogan said, because it comes off as accusatory.
Fragrance fouls. Wearing perfume or cologne — even the good stuff — is a bad idea at work because of the mixed reviews you’ll receive. Half will like your scent; the other half will think you reek. “Smell is so polarizing,” Hogan said.
