House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi speaks with her hands, Secretary of State John Kerry has a large presence and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani uses eye contact to make a connection with his audience, a body language expert says.

Pelosi "is very effusive in really making sure that she gestures almost all of the time," Patrick told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV Friday.

"What's interesting if you watch her long enough, however, is there's long periods of time where she will use her right hand to punctuate almost everything she is saying," she explained.

"She also uses a smile often times to temper what otherwise might be very stringent speech" as well as "some techniques of maybe sort of toning down what otherwise might come across as too aggressive," she said.

When it comes to Kerry, the body language expert says that he has "a large presence" but "he uses his height well."

"He's not one of these tall men that kind of crouch down or maybe are almost apologetic of their height," she explained. "He stands upright."

Patrick said that the difficult thing about Rouhani is that when it comes to "other cultures, we often don't have the benefit of knowing what's appropriate or inappropriate in other cultures."

"Some people come from cultures where they're not naturally effusive," she explained, unlike Americans.

With the Iranian president, she says that he has "a very stone face that doesn't seem to change much, but he nonetheless uses eye contact, much more than some people that speak our language and that speaks volumes for his wanting to connect with an audience that he knows can't understand a word of what he's saying," she said of the speech he recently gave at the United Nations.
