07 Dec body language

Words, and the ways they are assembled and interact with each other only constitute one third of meaning transfer in the communication process. Another third comes from context and the other third comes from body language: the facial expressions and arrangements of physical postures and signals. There are many organizations that specialize in teaching people how to understand body language. I borrowed a page from one such organization for this definition: “”. In their site, they offer information on Message Clusters in body language, and I quote:

Body language comes in clusters of signals and postures, depending on the internal emotions and mental states.  Recognizing a whole cluster is thus far more reliable than trying to interpret individual elements.
