Uncovering Trainee Intentions through Body Language

Through experience, a trainer may start to feel what trainee intentions are by observing their body language. For instance, let’s say the trainer asks a question or calls for participants to present something or speak. A participant who intends to answer the question or speak may clear his throat. By observing which trainee has been clearing his throat, even in a subtle way, the trainer can be able to identify which participants are intending to answer the question or speak. Other subtle signs can be observed by the trainer in order to be aware of what participants are thinking of or feeling.

What other signs, besides clearing the throat, do you think can be indicative of trainee intentions? What intentions would such signs be indicating?
