As you might guess, sitting perfectly erect means that you’re confident.

If this is your typical posture while sitting, it means you’re a strong and reliable person, and everyone turns to you when they need help or comfort.

But even though you’ve got all your ducks in a row, you still know how to have fun and enjoy the little things in life.
