Body Language Analysis №4218: Dana Loesch, Threat Assessment, and Red Flags — Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
From a nonverbal and paralanguage perspective, the three predominant emotions Ms. Loesch expresses throughout this video are contempt, disgust, and anger.
Now, of course, any normal, emotionally healthy human being is going to express all of these emotions from time-to-time. We’re allowed. We’re human. But hopefully, we won’t see these feelings very often.
However, whenever a person displays anger, contempt, and/or disgust frequently — it’s a monumental alarm. Ms. Loesch displayed all of these emotions with during her recent interviews on ABC, CNN, and the Town Hall meeting in Florida where she shared the stage with surviving students from the recent Mass Shooting event at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Virtually 100% of individuals who exhibit this behavior pattern will have Impulse Control Disorder and carry a high retaliatory potential.
With increasing frequency over the past decade whenever we hire, date, or evaluate another person for any reason, we have easy access to their publicly available video, audio, images, etc. on social media. Thus we can use social media to screen/pre-screen a potential future employer, employee, date, roommate, babysitter, etc., A profound red flag is raised when anyone displays frequent contempt, anger, and/or disgust — on their social media — in our presence — and certainly during interviews on national TV.
Summary: As a method of routine screening, assessing the mental stability of a particular individual, and as a tool of Threat Assessment — whenever the real-time/day-to-day behavior or the social media of a person contains displays of anger, contempt, and/or disgust with high or even moderate frequency — a critical red flag is raised. At the very least such a person has Impulse Control Disorder and an elevated retaliatory potential.

In an effort to be both practical and academic, many examples from/of varied cultures, politicians, professional athletes, legal cases, public figures, etc., are cited in order to teach and illustrate both the interpretation of others’ body language as well as the projection of one’s own nonverbal skills in many different contexts — not to advance any political, religious, or other agenda.
