The signals that identify an imminent aggression

In this discussion we are going to list some of the most common attitudes that, in real life, we must warn against a possible and real aggression.

Here are the contextual signals that identify a (probable) imminent attack:

  • Point (aggressively) the finger with the hand tightened to an height greater than the neck
  • Hands gesturing with fast movements, violent and sharp
  • Stiffening of the nostrils accompanied by slight movement of the ears and by raising the outer part of the eyebrows
  • Step forward with the opposite leg to his “favorite” (eg. the right for lefties)
  • Variation in the speech (speeding up or slowing down), this means that his mind is busy to plan the attack
  • Various and any nervous tics (cheeks, mouth, eyes, etc.)
  • Redness of the cheeks, a general warming of the upper half of the body
  • The violation of our “breathing space”, he enter insistently in that circle which is defined around us by our arms stretched parallels to the ground
  • Just before the attack his back stiffen and rise up, the chin drops (instinctively to protect the neck)
  • Look to the right and left without a reason (to find general danger)
  • The pupils dilate
  • Close the eyes and raise your eyebrows in the sense of tolerance, resulting in stronger and wider exhalation from the mouth and nose

For consistency must be said that:

  • Only one signal is not necessarily indicative of an imminent attack
  • A pair of concurrent signals are indicative of a high risk of attack
  • Of course, in no case we find all the listed signals simultaneously
  • We are all different and there may be some signs differ
  • Only direct experience will develop our ability to understand how people feels

These signals are identified mainly in the “ordinary” people, martial artists / athletes of fighting disciplines have slightly different contextual cues: we will see them in the next article.
