Abstract

Nonverbal communications is a fascinating and complex world of connections and cues, which can be analyzed and applied in many situations. With an understanding of nonverbal communication relating to multiple domains such as the face, eyes, hands, and posture, a new understanding of others’ emotions, disabilities, and qualities is revealed. In all types of social settings, understanding the aspects of nonverbal communication can effectively reveal unspoken words–information not clear to others. We desired this unique ability and understanding. To acquire this skill of reading others, we accumulated all available information on nonverbal communication and applied this knowledge to everyday situations. The discoveries we made were very intriguing, and this new understanding has helped us significantly to develop a deeper form of communication with colleagues, professors, peers, family members, and even strangers on a daily basis. Simple forms of communication such as a hand gesture, closed posture, or a sly smirk can reveal much more than we ever realized possible.
