How you sit matters: Send the right sign

Does your seated posture project confidence or fear; interest or apathy; sloppiness or professionalism? Etiquette expert Barbara Pachter of­­fers some tips to ensure your seated posture is sending the right message.

  • Don’t fidget. It’s distracting and makes you seem nervous.
  • Keep your seat at the same level as others. That means you’ll have to adjust the height sometimes.
  • Sit up tall. Don’t slump, don’t fold your hands on the table and don’t cross your arms. Spread out, but don’t take others’ space.
  • Keep both feet on the floor. Don’t cross your legs and pay attention to your clothing on your lower half.
  • Sit at the table. Do not choose a seat lined up against the wall.
