and where they are going (Brown).

Nonverbal Communication (The Silent
Language) Messages of Action, Space, Time and
Silence
10
Nonverbal Communication
  • Usually responsible for first impressions
  • Doesnt lie (a clenched jaw shows youre
    angry or stammering speech shows that youre
    nervous)
  • Is culture bound

11
Nonverbal Communication
  • Two General Classifications1. Those primarily
    produced by the body (appearance, movement,
    facial expression, eye contact, touch, smell,
    and paralanguage)
  • 2. Those combined with setting (space, time and
    silence)

12
Nonverbal Communication
  • There is a story about the presidential debate of
    Nixon and Kennedy in 1960 where people listening
    via radio awarded the victory to Nixon while
    those watching the debate on television awarded
    the victory to Kennedy.This was explained by the
    fact that though President Nixon had very
    persuasive words during the debate, he was tense,
    sweating and seemed quite uncomfortable. On the
    other hand, President Kennedy was relaxed and
    able to convey a positive and convincing body
    language during the debate. Since that incident,
    researchers have demonstrated that a message is
    perceived in 3 different ways

13
Nonverbal Communication
  • Body Language (kinesics)
  • Kinesics are the physical cues that are visible
    and send a message about 1) your attitude toward
    the other person, 2) your emotional state, 3)
    your relationship with the environment
  • Kinesics includes body posture, body motion,
    gestures, facial expressions, eye contact.

14
Nonverbal Communication
  • Eye Contact
  • In American culture, we reveal whom we like and
    dislike just by the amount that we look at them.
    We generally look most at those whom we like . In
    general, people avoid looking at someone they
    dont like. 
  • As people increase their liking for one another,
    they increase the amount of mutual gazing that
    they do. (Mutual gaze is when two people are
    looking into each other's eyes). The most obvious
    example of this occurs along the continuum of
    relationships. Romantic relationships have the
    highest amount of mutual gaze.What about other
    cultures?
  • .

15
Nonverbal Communication
  • Sense of Touch (haptics)
  • Who can touch whom, where, when and how

    and attractiveness

17
Nonverbal Communication

19
Nonverbal Communication
  • Time (chronemics)
  • Informal time (how late is late?)
  • Perceptions of past, present and future
  • Monochronic (fixed) and polychronic (holistic
    time) (Edward T. Hall)

20
Nonverbal Communication

    dont have written form that modify meaning or
    convey emotion.
  • Includes rate, sounds, murmurs, gasps, volume,
    pitch, inflection, laughing, high speed

21
Nonverbal Communication
  • Silence East vs. WestWhat is real is, and
    when it is spoken it becomes unreal. (Buddhism)
  • The squeaky wheel gets the grease. (American
    saying)

22

    virtue of peoples use of them.
