Body Language

51. Voice
Have you ever noticed that other people ?read? our voices in addition to listening to our words.Our timing and pace, intensity of voice, tone and inflection, and sounds like ?ahh? and ?uh-huh' etc convey more than the spoken words. Many times our tone of voice, for example, can indicate confidence, anger, affection or a command.
52. Eye movement
Eyes tend to look left when the brain is recalling or remembering and right when the brain is imagining or creating. This relates to right and left sides of the brain - in this context broadly the parts of the brain handling creativity/feelings (right) and facts/memory (left).
53. Touch
Do not underestimate the power of touch. We communicate a great deal through touch. A warm hug from your friend or a pat on your back can instantly relieve you of stress. Similarly a weak hand shake or a timid pat can leave a poor impression on the other person.
54. Space
When someone stands too close to you and talks, don't you feel uncomfortable? We all have a need for physical space, although it differs in cultures, in situations, and the proximity of the relationship. You can use physical space to communicate many different nonverbal messages, including signals of intimacy and affection, aggression or dominance
55. Gestures
Most of the time we communicate through our geastures unknowingly. Gestures are woven into the fabric of our daily lives. We express ourselves with gestures often without thinking. However, the meaning of gestures can be very different across cultures and regions, so it?s important to be careful to avoid misinterpretation.
56. Eye contact
Eye contact is an especially important type of nonverbal communication. Your look can communicate many things, including interest, affection, anger, or attraction. For gauging other person's response, you just need to look into his/her eyes.
57. Body movements and posture
A lot can be conveyed through non verbal communication. Have you ever considered how your perceptions of people are affected by the way they sit, walk, stand up, or hold their head. The way you carry yourself gives a wealth of information to the world.
58. Facial expressions
God has given us a very expressive face so we are able to express many emotions without saying a word. Unlike some forms of nonverbal communication, facial expressions are universal. The facial expressions for happiness, sadness, surprise, disgust and fear are just the same across countries
