    • A.

      Boredom

    • B.

      Anger

    • C.

      Secretiveness

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Anger
    C. Defensiveness
    Explanation
    Resentment, anger, and defensiveness share similar body language gestures. Resentment is a feeling of bitterness or indignation, often accompanied by a desire for revenge. Similarly, anger is a strong feeling of displeasure or hostility, often shown through facial expressions like furrowed brows and clenched fists. Defensiveness, on the other hand, involves protecting oneself from perceived threats or criticism, which can also manifest in defensive body language cues such as crossed arms and a tense posture. Therefore, anger and defensiveness significantly overlap with the emotion of resentment in terms of body language gestures.

    The lip-biting gesture can be an indication of a "leak" of nervous energy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer

By biting their lip, they are able to redirect some of that nervous energy. Therefore, the statement that the lip-biting gesture can be an indication of a "leak" of nervous energy is true.
