When I was a kid, I used to stick my tongue out when I was working hard
or concentrating hard. I stopped doing that at some time in my life, but I
don't know when.
However, when someone asks me a question, I roll my eyes and look up
and to the right. I think that's where the answer is stored. <g> Many years
ago, a conference speaker evaluation accused me of thinking that the
questions the audience asked were stupid because I rolled my eyes.
After that, I started giving a disclaimer before my talks.
Just recently, the subject of body language came up at home, and I told
my husband about that old eval and that I now give a disclaimer before
each talk. He laughed. Said he's seen me do it several times and that I
also stand on one foot when that happens.
