The meaning of shaking one's head is not always the same in different countries. Maybe some visitors would be surprised when they first come to India. Indians always shake their heads when they talk to others. But it does not have the same meaning as our “No”. If someone wants to visit India, he should know this, or it will bring him some trouble.
One day, a foreign officer went to India on business. He hired(雇用) an Indian to drive his car. When he told the driver to send him to his office, the Indian shook his head at once. The officer said again, but the driver shook his head again. At last, the officer, of course, got angry.
“How dare(敢) you refuse(拒绝) my order？” he shouted. “Drive me to my office at once！”
The driver answered in quite a loud voice, “Yes, sir！” But to the officer's surprise, the driver shook his head at the same time.
The car started, and the foreign officer was too surprised to say a word. He thought about it for a while, and then he nodded with a smile, “‘No’ means ‘Yes’ here！”

Americans like to look at the other person in the eyes when they are talking. If you don't do so, it means you are unhappy, or you are not interested.
For Americans, thumbs?up means “Yes”， “Very good” or “Well done”. Thumbs?down means the opposite(相反). To call a waiter, people put one hand above the head. It is all right to point at things but not at people with the hand and index finger(食指). Americans shake their index finger at children when they scold(责备) them and touch them on the head when they admire(夸奖) them.
