Have you ever been talking to someone and they just did not respond to you or your questions? I have performed an experiment over the recent days with some of my good friends.
I picked my friends because I feel like they know me better than anyone and would surely respond to my experiment with kinesics. In my experiment, I would just not respond to any of my friends as they were talking to me. After my experiment, I realized how frustrating it can be for someone if the person you are talking to does not respond. I found it more important to listen to what everyone has to say and give them your full attention. I believe this is something people of my generation struggle with because of technology.
I have been friends with the group of people I performed the experiment on since seventh grade. This let me know how well they really knew me by how they responded to my experiment. The experiment took place at a small get together for one of my friend’s twenty first birthday. We will all be in an apartment and probably hanging out watching a football game of some sort. There were five boys and three girls present in the apartment for the experiment. In the experiment, I let one of my friends start a conversation with me and as it would be my turn to respond or talk, I would simple not respond and shrug my shoulders.
I predict that the guys will notice the situation less and not be as concerned to as why I am not responding. I feel like it might take them longer to realize I am not even responding. I figure most of them will think I am sad or upset and just do not feel like talking. My guy friends are usually always concerned about my well-being and happiness so I feel like it will be hard to convince them I am...

...concern on how I was feeling than if I was upset with her. It was obvious she was very concern if I was mad because she proceeded to try to find out in anyway what was going on. Once she started to ask around, I believe she made other people realize that something was going on. I am not sure how she believed I was mad but it may be because I usually tell her everything and when I did not respond she was probably incredibly shocked.
In conclusion, I found this project to be super entertaining. I was interested in every person’s reaction. It was hard to keep the experiment going at times and not laugh. This experiment helps me realize how important communication can be. It is easy to misunderstand actions and lets us realize how useful words can be to this world. It is interesting to take away something you use in your everyday life to do about all tasks.

- Stressful Educational Experience Looking back to your high school years, what do you remember. Do you think of that one night that you got to get all dressed up, wear high heels, and spray pounds of hair spray onto your loose curly hair. Or, maybe you think of your best friend. The person who is supposed to be your partner in crime and always there for you when someone hurts you. Your best friend is not supposed to be the one who hurts you the most. In my case, I had exactly the opposite. I was the target of my narcissistic best friend for my entire high school experience.... [tags: High school, Middle school, Psychology]

- May 2016, nice weather, clear skies with a hint of a cool breeze; I was at a friend’s house hanging out with her and her family when I met someone I didn’t know, at the time, would change everything in a matter of weeks. When we met, I was dating someone who my mind and heart were ultimately never sure deserved me; forgive my pretentiousness, for I do not mean to come off as so. Just as predicted, our relationship ended shortly after as it had too many other times before. This left every part of my being vulnerable to the presence of another....

- It was a warm Friday in September of 2013; the end of the week had finally come. However, this was not going to be just any ordinary Friday because I was going to my friend Davey’s house for a bonfire. I could have never dreamed that this day would end the way it did. But, after a several hour standoff occurring in the white colonial style house just one street down from mine, my exciting day planned ahead of me had ended. My house was just a half mile down the road from Laurel Highlands High School, where I attended school.... [tags: President of the United States, White House]

- Imagine having the advantage of knowing what to do before you could make a mistake. Imagine not having to pay the price due to the lack of experience. I wouldn’t say I am an expert at life, but when those tricky situations come, I am one step ahead of the game. How would that be possible you say. I owe it all to my best friend; she gave me the best advantage, simply by having to watch her suffer the consequences of her mistakes. We’ve been best friends since pre-k, we always had fun with each other, and we were both so innocent.... [tags: essay about myself, Personal Experience]

- I remember an old saying my mother used to tell me, “Never say never”. Is this true. I would have never expected this to be true till something happened to me that changed my life till this very day. Growing up I was oddly very cold hearted. I guess I was never the gurly girl always crying after a finger nail broke or the kind of person that wore her heart on her sleeve. I would always keep things to myself and let it be the day someone saw me cry. Most people just thought I wasn’t human. Crying wasn’t something I was used to but I didn’t know one instance would make me shed oceans.... [tags: friendship essay, my best friend]

- The journey through childhood is filled with many experiences. Children often fantasize about their own eventual journey through adulthood; with stars in their eyes, they contemplate the freedom and wonder that greatly differs from their current experience. Some experiences force growth, robbing the childhood experience. Naïve childhood bubbles often burst as they are abruptly hurled head-first into adulthood. Life experience provides the ability to learn and grow or become sour and stubborn. What is the true definition of being an adult.... [tags: Knowledge, Wisdom, Experience, Adult]

- The entire Performing Others process really opened my eyes and gave me the opportunity to learn in a way I hadn’t before. Observing a group, researching it, interviewing members and performing what I learned for my classmates challenged me to think in new ways and step out of my comfort zone. As I stated in my performance, small group wasn’t what I expected. Even though I had some experience with church groups and had a close friend involved in the group, attending the meetings made me see things in a new light, and changed my perspective on not only how I see people in the group, but also how I see myself....

- To experience a new religion is to open one's mind to an entirely new world. For my World Religions course, I was asked to visit a place of worship for a religion other than what I was most used to. Upon considering being raised as a Pentacostal Christian, the first idea that came to me after hearing this was for Billy and I to go with our friend Arjun's family to a Hindu temple—since Arjun had moved away recently to go to college however, he was unable to attend. On Sunday, February 21, Billy and I joined Arjun's father in his trip to the Hindu temple in Orlando—we had to wake up earlier than usual for a Sunday but it was for good cause....
