  • Space: Personal space demonstrates everything from intimacy to aggression to dominance. It should be noted different cultures view personal space differently.
  • Eye Contact: The eyes are a crucial form of nonverbal communication. They show a wide range of emotions.
  • Eye contact is a basic way of maintaining communication and gauging responses.
  • Facial Expressions: Facial expressions are universal. Happiness, sadness, surprise, fear, disgust, and anger are feelings we humans all experience.
  • Body Movement: How you carry yourself speaks volumes. It’s that simple.
  • Gestures: They’re a worldwide phenomenon but vary vastly from culture to culture.
  • Touch: A lot is conveyed through this simple gesture. A pat on the back, a grip on your hand, or a warm bear hug all signal different feelings.
  • Voice: We’re not talking about what you say but how you say it. Timing, tone, inflection and volume all send messages to the receiver.

Here are a couple of ways to help you signal who you are.

  • Everyone has their own body language. Ask your friends what you convey.
  • What non-verbal communications do you admire? Start incorporating those into your day. For instance, a slow walk indicates approachability.
