We all know that different personality types express themselves in different ways.

For example, your walking style can definitely reveal a lot about your personality. Confident people may strut their way through life, while introverts may walk briskly with their heads down.

But what does it reveal about two people when their personalities are forced to physically collide — in a hug?

Happiness and well-being author Kulraj writes, “Hugging is, in fact, just an extended form of a fundamental human need: touch. An abundance of research has shown that skin-to-skin contact between a mother and newborn yields important physical and psychological benefits.” He continues that as we grow into adulthood, “the importance of touch does not diminish.”

Because hugs and physical contact are so important to who we are as human beings, and because we are all so drastically different, it comes as no surprise that there are actually so many different types of hugs. So it makes total sense that each type of hug can reveal a lot about the relationship between the two huggers.

This exclusive look at hugs is extremely revealing. In fact, when I started paying attention to how I was hugging others, I was shocked by how accurate this was!
