Body Language in Aggressors and Abusers

Some statistics from Women’s Aid Federation and Scottish Women’s Aid.

  • 1 in 4 UK women experience abuse in a relationship.
  • 1 in 5 Scottish women will be the victim of domestic abuse.
  • Over half of the reported rapes are from partners or previous partners.

It is common that many abusers a deceptive and mannerisms, which could potentially give them away, will be subtle.

Abusers often will make themselves look bigger in front of women, thrusting chest out, head raised and can maintain piercing eye contact. Talking to others, who are below him in social standing such as a bartender, can be condescending. Socially awkward and will back away in groups of people.

Some people have reported that due to their superiority complex they will appear arrogant and display gestures such as jumping queues and anger gestures such as shaking fists. Statements will often refer to the couple as a singular so will contain ‘I’ and ‘me’ instead of ‘we’.
