When sitting down, especially in formal or business settings, don’t cross your legs as this is considered rude and creates the feeling that you have an attitude and consider yourself important. Crossing your legs may seem natural to you and you don’t mean anything by it except that it’s comfortable for you to do this while sitting but it would be best to keep both legs together on the floor with your back straight and a hand on each knee when sitting down. This posture means that you are attentively listening to the conversation. The Japanese also avoid crossing their legs as it can show the sole of their foot to other people, which is also considered rude.
