Welcome to Episode 004 of the Alan Baker Show! In today’s podcast, we delve deep into understanding vulnerability factors and how to be more prepared for the uncertainties that life throws our way.

Grayson & Stein Study: Attracting Assault: We explore the significance of nonverbal cues in making one susceptible to assault.
Body Language Interpretation: We break down factors such as stride length, stride width, type of walk, energy levels, and body movements to understand their implications on one’s emotional state and intentions.
Pre-Attack Indicators: Recognizing subtle cues before a potential aggressive act is vital.
Some common indicators include:
◦ Target glancing
◦ Grooming gestures
◦ Clenched fists
◦ Showing or touching a concealed weapon
Understanding and Recognition: Recognizing these cues is essential when interpreting body language, which can distinguish between safety and danger. However, context is critical, and not every indicator guarantees an attack.
