The emotion: Authoritative

The body language: A co-worker who’s trying to be authoritative will maintain eye contact, never looking below your mouth. If he’s sitting, he might straddle the chair or lean back with both hands supporting his head. He’ll offer a firm handshake with his fingers pointing downward.

How you should respond: Subtly mirror his actions and stand your ground to find the middle ground and identify a solution.
 
Next pose: Angry
