Thesis statement: Non-verbal communication is as important as what people say; however, if not examined carefully can be misinterpret because of lack of awareness. This lack of knowledgecan cause misunderstandings in everyday life. Good communication is an essentialvalue for successful relationships, whether personal or professional. Many researchers have stated that most of our communication is non-verbal. Non-verbal communication includes body language, facial expressions, gestures, eye contact, posture, and the tone of our voice.
Similar to our verbal talk, non-verbal communication can also produce mixed signs. As a listener, you are confronted with the challenge of deciding what message to interpret. Brownell (2013) discusses in the text how non-verbal communication is an unconscious style of communicating that brings out your accurate feelings. The way you look, move and respond gives cues to your partner to whether or not you are following and if you are being honest or how well you are listening (Brownell 2013). Additionally, if your non-verbal signs accordingly coincide with the words you are speaking, this can be a large boost in your trust.
Nonverbal communication has more depth to it; there is more meaning in its nonverbal gestures such as body language. Albert Mehrabin is a UCLA Professor who developed a rule stating messages sent from one person to another are mostly received through nonverbal forms ("Non Verbal Communication", 2013). Interpersonal relationship relies heavily on nonverbal cues because it is an important factor that builds relationships with others as we identify them through feedback. Nonverbal communication is a mean of survival, however it also complicates the understanding of our culture, and creates a bond with others. Nonverbal communication is defined as ending cues to others that are considered wordless.
One can end up feeling more at ease and safer through it being there. Without it, one can appear shifty and deceptive. It could be due to shyness or low confidence, but this is often overlooked and labelled as one being rude or even ignorant. Connection And as it can lead to trust being formed, it therefore means that it will play a big part in how connected one feels to another. When one talks to someone and eye contact is there, each person can come to conclusion that they matter and they could even end up feeling special because of it.
Families have worked hard to keep this a alive in each one of the generations that is coming up behind them. Traditions and cultural legacies has been the idea was of identify our family history. It allows us to know just who we are and where we come from.

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION 1.1. Introduction Communication is not just a matter of sending and receiving messages without thinking of their effects on others. Successful communication means sending and receiving thoughts and ideas in a reasonable, acceptable and, at the same time, polite way since misinterpretation may cause embarrassment or harm to others. As simple as communication seems, much of what we try to communicate to others—and what others try to communicate to us—gets misunderstood, which can cause conflict and frustration in personal and professional relationships. (Robinson, Segal, and Segal, 2013, para.
Our posture can send out messages without speaking a single word. The ways we sit, stand, form shoulders, cross hands or arms are mostly involuntary or unconscious gestures, but nonetheless, affect how a receiver interprets any message send. Posture can affect how the message is received and any feedback that follows, which often determines if communication is... ... middle of paper ... ...g is vital regardless what form because it allows you to receive information to respond in the appropriate context. Your respond should be based on several factors, such as the individual, tone, and gesture as well has verbal content. Demonstrative communication is more vital to verbal communication because it must agree with what is being spoken.
According to the author, he mentions that communication is not necessarily verbal and is directly related to language. There is also the category of non-verbal communication. Non-verbal communication is a quality of communication that does not imply the use of words in their entirety, but goes beyond that concept. A point mentioned in the chapter reminds us of a very illustrative popular saying to understand this concept, when we say that "actions speak more than words". That concept of Action is an example of non-verbal communication.
Non- verbals can have many positive effects such as increasing closeness, enhance understanding, or even getting a job. The bad effects however, can be creating conflict, causing discomfort, or causing you to not get hired. Due to faulty non- verbals, we as humans need to understand how to use and interpret others non- verbals to cause better in our lives. References Broughton, Lindsay. (2014).
According to Quintanilla (2014) “…since many nonverbal gestures are unconscious or unintentional, it is important to be aware of your nonverbal communication at all times and to understand that different gestures carry different meanings to people” (p. 26). The way people perceive others and are perceived can be because of their non-verbal communication. A person may have excellent content to their message but they may be carrying themselves in a way that others can not connect with. They may seem too hurried, overly proud, rude, or disconnected because of their tone in their voice. This can all be because of their body movements or facial expression.
