What Is Nonverbal Communication?
When you don’t want to take part in a particular conversation, you may look the other way. Without uttering a word, you convey, “I am not interested.”
Nonverbal communication is conveying your message through gestures, postures, signals, or clues. In our personal and professional lives, we give and receive countless nonverbal clues every day.
Types Of Nonverbal Communication
Let us explore the types of nonverbal communication.
Body language is an effective means of nonverbal communication. You can tell a lot about a person from their facial expressions, body posture, gestures, eye movement, and use of space. One of the best-known examples is actor Amitabh Bachchan whose effective body language gave an aura to his angry young man persona in his early films.
Learn to read the body language of people around you by noticing their postures and gestures.
Eyes are an effective communication tool to convey messages without saying a word. Eye contact says a lot about a person. For instance, those who avoid eye contact are often perceived as shy or less confident.
It is said that actor Irrfan Khan spoke a thousand words with his eyes. “I’m just beguiled by Irrfan’s magic eyes,” Hollywood star Tom Hanks once said.
From a lip movement to the raising of eyebrows and shifting of the glance, our facial expressions convey a wide range of emotions. Some facial expressions are very powerful. For instance, a smile makes any situation easier to handle.
A gesture is another form of nonverbal communication. Different gestures could mean different things in different situations.
Have you seen people communicate using sign language? Every hand gesture means something. Even during regular conversations, most of us knowingly or unknowingly use certain gestures such as nodding or giving a thumbs-up or high five.
Para-linguistics means vocal communication through the tone, pitch, and volume of your voice. Remember the community tennis matches held on the weekends? The way your sister came shouting, you knew she had won the match.
