There are several types of nonverbal communication that may be evaluated on the basis of certain examples, that will help you understand the nuances of this complicated form of communication.
When reading facial expressions, some of these examples may help:
← While maintaining eye contact is a sign of confidence and positivity, avoiding eye contact is one of the most clear negative nonverbal communication examples. This implies that the person may be lying, or fears confrontation.
← The smile is another give-away when it comes to facial expressions. While a soft smile is a soft expression that is encouraging, a rigid

“You'll have your looks, your pretty face. And don't underestimate the importance of body language, ha!” - Ursula The Little Mermaid
Nonverbal communication surrounds us every day, it is present if we are encountering
people or if we are standing in a room alone. When we get home from a long day and our dog is
there to greet us with his wagging tail, or when you tell your kids its time for bed and you are
met with the enormous sound of rolling eyes. When it comes to nonverbal communication
sometimes we might not even realize we are sending a nonverbal message. Nonverbal

Culture is defined as a particular way of life in given geographic settings which is changed by all forms of routine communication and social interaction. It is developed through a dynamic and interactive process of everyday life which encompasses the differences in social class, race and geographical boundaries and the verbal communication and the nonverbal forms of communication associated with kinesics, proxemics, chronemics, paralinguistics and semiotics.

When the question, “What do you think of when you hear the word communication?” is asked, usually the first or second response is “speaking.” Of course that is an important component, but the area of nonverbal communication, research indicates, is more “telling” of our thoughts than the verbal words we speak (Clark, 2004). Communication is often expressed either verbally, nonverbally, written, or visually. The focus of this paper is to discuss and examine communication that does not involve verbal stimuli. This type of communication is commonly referred to as Demonstrative Communication. Demonstrative

If verbal and nonverbal communication are used together it creates a complementing relationship that shows we are actively listening and showing interest.

How Does Nonverbal Behaviors Effect A Person ?
People communicate everyday of their lives, but we rarely notice the nonverbal
part of communication and how important it is to the meaning of the message. Facial
expressions, posture, body movements, tone of voice and touching are all part of
nonverbal communication. Often when people communicate they contradict the verbal
and nonverbal messages, therefore the receiver of the message receives a message with a
double meaning and interprets the message less accurately. Nonverbal messages affect a
person in a positive and negative way. Understanding the way nonverbal behaviors affect
a person can help in improving

Communication through Gestures and Facial Expressions
Nonverbal communication can be defined as the transfer of messages without the use of words. It uses physical movement; such as hand gestures and body language, and also facial expressions; for example, eye contact, frowning, and smiling. Marta Dynel defines nonverbal (NVC) communication as:
While in broad definitions NVC includes any kind of non-verbal messages (or non-verbal signs) proper to informative processes, more narrow definitions restrict it to non-language (or better non-linguistic) phenomena that are interrelated — often in an intricate way — with verbal language and can be found in interactive or communicative processes

Therefore, the communication process goes beyond the actual flowchart of sender sends a message, decodes it in a way that the receiver can encoded back to send a feedback which will be later decoded by the original sender. In cases where aforementioned barriers affect this message, demonstrative communications helps in transmitting this message in a way that could be better interpreted by the receiver.

The way to transmit information is how we communicate. It must have a person sending a message, the message itself, and finally a recipient. This happens when we exchange information by talking, the way we act, thoughts, signs, or on paper. This could be printed, oral, nonverbal, or an image. We will discuss a few points on how the sender and the receiver can communicate effectively, ineffectively, positively and negatively.

Demonstrative effective communication can be done by nonverbal actions for example, if someone was giving a speech or a presentation, the facial expressions would be a form of positive communication. The tone of voice is another form of positive communication if the listener perceives it as a pleasant non-confrontational voice. The person’s body language can also be positive if it is received in that manner. Effective communications in certain situations require having information or knowledge of the subject.

Communication is the act of passing information from one person to the next. When you ask someone to think of an example of face to face communication the answer is almost verbal communication with words only every time. I asked five people what the first thing they thought of when I said face to face communication and all of them but one answered “verbal communication”. It can be easy to discount some different ways that a person is able to communicate their message to others during a face to face situation.

Demonstrative communication is the process where messages are sent and received. Exchanging thoughts, information, or messages, speech, writing, or signals and even behavior can all be labeled as types of communication. Verbal or nonverbal, visual or written are different forms of communication. Written or oral communication can be considered to be verbal communication, facial expressions, eye contact, or gestures, and including body posture are considered to be forms of nonverbal communication. Letters, emails, reports, and articles are all forms of verbal communication.

behaviors. That I do not do, I have a bad habit of taking a person for their word, and not really observing nonverbal behaviors. I guess I do that because I was in a situation one time, where a manager thought I was rolling my eyes during the conversation, when it was a reaction of disbelief on my part. I think that often people read some behaviors as negative nonverbal behaviors when they are not intended to be negative.

2. Goal – Be able to get more meaning and increase understanding when communicating with others.
3. Plan - Be more aware of nonverbal behavior, such as facial expressions and body language, along with meaning from people’s words. I will implement what I have learned in my next conversations in coming weeks.

Demonstrative Communication is the process of sending and receiving information and feedback. This involves the exchange of messages through the process of verbal or nonverbal communication and active listening. The sender of the nonverbal message should always be careful to send the correct information in the message, and the receiver must listen and interpret the message correctly.

Demonstrative communication is the process by which the sender is communicating through nonverbal and unwritten forms of communications such as body language, facial expressions, or even tone of voice. Demonstrative communication can be a very powerful and effective form of communication, or it can lead to a big miscommunication between the sender and the receiver of information. The trouble with nonverbal forms of communication is that not only must the sender convey the message through body language or facial expressions, but the receiver must also be able to correctly interpret the message being sent.
