How to Know When Someone is Thinking of You?

Thinking or talking about someone can send positive or negative vibes. How do you know if someone is thinking about you? Is there a definite way of finding out that someone is talking about you? Of course there is. Hello everyone and welcome to thebestmind.net. In this article, we're going to learn about how to know when someone is thinking of you now let's begin.

Burning cheeks

Your body often picks up on signals that you never would have noticed. In the middle of a conversation for seemingly no reason at all, your cheeks or ears might light up red. They might get your tingle like you just walked into a room full of people with no clothes on. Your cheeks are burning not because you're embarrassed or because you're sick, but because someone is talking or thinking about you.

Just imagine you're talking with your friends and suddenly, someone makes an off comment about people who are too nice all the time. They're not looking at you or saying your name, but your cheeks light up anyway, why is that? Because deep down, your brain can read between the lines better than you can, it can spot those hidden signals and it notices the tiniest changes in someone's tone or speech.

On the outside, their conversation might have nothing to do with you, but your body still picks up on that hidden subtext and when that happens, blood rushes into your cheeks and you're left wondering why.

So, the next time your cheeks start burning for no reason, pay attention to what people are saying around you, because there's a good chance someone has you in mind.

Stomach knots

A similar phenomenon can happen deep within your digestive system. If someone makes a passing comment about you, gives you a dirty look or drops a few clues that you don't get. Your stomach will give you signals; it will hurt and twist and nuts.

Wherever you will be at a party or at dinner , your stomach could suddenly feel like you're on top of a mountain. This weird reaction stems from the way our digestive system responds to emotional tension.

For starters, your stomach is more emotionally intelligent than you realize. It can pick up on complex feelings like awkwardness, anxiety and happiness. Your brain communicate constantly with neurons located in your  gut.

So, it's very possible that your gut will learn and recognize something way before you do. That's usually what happens with social discomfort or emotional tension. Because of those neurons at its disposal, your stomach identifies environmental stress and responds with those twisting dropping feelings that you know very well.

What's actually happening within your body? Where does that physical pain come from? Stress typically launches a reaction in your central nervous system and that generates all kinds of digestive problems.

You might have excess acid in your stomach, spasms in your esophagus, inflammation in your colon and of course a whole lot of indigestion, but your stomach is a lot more perceptive than you give it credit for.

So, if you want to know if someone is thinking of you, just see what your stomach thinks. It might tell you more than your eyes or ears ever could.

Subconscious slips

Let's say you know a secret. Your boss told you this morning that your coworker is going to get fired next week. You're usually pretty good at keeping secrets, so you just go about your day like nothing's wrong. A few minutes later, a disaster occurs, this same colleague comes to see you and asks you for a favor. He needs you to deposit documents for him.

So, try to do your best to act naturally, answer yourself by saying : Sure, I will filed them for you, but instead of saying filed, you said fired by accident. So what went wrong? Why did that word pop right out of your mouth? It turns out your internal trains of thought can leak out of your unconscious mind and into your conscious speech resulting in a psychological phenomenon called: parapraxis or as most people call it: a Freudian slip.

Freudian slips happen to everybody. In fact, the average person slips up two to three times each 1000 words. So, it's not that unusual for someone to slip 15 or 20 times in a single day. Not all of these slips are involuntary and not all of them can tell you if someone is thinking of you, but you can use them to learn a lot about someone's inner thoughts by listening to their unconscious mistakes.

When someone throws the wrong word in front of you, it says you two important things : first, you know that this person was thinking about something different than what they're saying. Otherwise, they wouldn't have slipped in the first place and second, you realize that this person was most likely thinking of you.

Theses mistakes appeared when talking to you and about you. So, listen for these subconscious slips and note the kinds of information that leak out of your friend or co-workers unconscious brain, because those little mistakes give you a rare window into someone else's mind.

Specialized machinery

Have you ever been sitting in a public place when you start to feel someone staring at you? However, when you look back, no one's looking. So, does that mean it wasn't real? The truth is, most of the time when you think someone's watching you from across the room, they probably are. Even if you can't see them doing it, your brain has a special system of neurons designed to identify eye contact.

You may not be able to see things at the very edge of your peripheral vision, but your brain can. Imagine you're sitting in a cafe, if someone not far from your tables starts looking at you, your specialized machinery will turn on.

These neurons will take the action and tell you that someone is looking in your direction, even if your eyes never actually see it happen.

Now of course, your specialized machinery isn't always perfect. Many people, especially teenagers experience something called: spotlight syndrome. They think that everyone's paying attention to them constantly, but in reality, no one really cares.

Feeling self-conscious will trick your brain into believing that you're being watched. So, just make sure you don't get these two confused.

Mutual friendships

One of the best ways to get to know someone is to get to know their friends first. If you meet the people they're closest to, it gives you an idea of what kind of person they are, what kind of things they like and what kind of personalities they mesh with.

So, if someone wants to get to know you better, they might use your friends as an entry point. Not only do  friendships tell them more about you, it also gives them an easy occasion to spend time with you. They'll be invited to the same parties, talk to the same people and hear the same discussions, which gives them more matter to solder that bond.

If you see that someone is getting close to your friends, it means that they think of you and want to know you much better.

The arrow

You naturally approach people you like. Your legs will move towards them and your head will lean in their direction. Without realizing it, your feet will aim straight at them. Your body turns into a big arrow that targets whoever in your mind. Do you want to know if someone's thinking of you?

So, follow that arrow. Take a closer look at their body gestures and watch out their eyes, hands and feet, because these are the three most expressive gesturing tools that humans have. You use them to signal everything from interest, to anger and to confusion.

You wave your hands around when you talk and create different meanings with your fingers. You jitter your feet when you're excited and you create entire sentences with your eyes. Even though you could use words to say almost anything, this kind of physical gesturing is ingrained into your physiology.

So, it's no surprise that your body also gives people a glimpse into your inner thoughts. If someone is thinking of you, their body language will be a dead giveaway.

Confusing smiles

How do you know if someone's thinking of you while you're talking to them? Sometimes the look on their face tells you everything you need to know. If you've been running around someone's mind, they'll smile throughout the entire conversation.

Even if it's a weird thing to be smiling about, you might be talking about something meaningless or frustrating, but for some reason, that person just keeps smiling. Now, most of the time, this confusing smile means only one thing: talking to you makes them happy.

It creates a so positive reaction that they cannot hold it back. Their faces cannot do anything apart smile. In other words, they're not just thinking of you, they're genuinely happy to be around you.
