Silent Conversations. Are Your Body and Mouth on the Same Page? – Rita Rocker 2

You are speaking volumes and you haven’t said a word yet. On a percentage basis how much do you think we communicate by the actual words we say? Based on the research of Dr. Ralph Nichols – we communicate just 7% of the time by the actual words we say. I want you to think about that for a moment. You communicate just 7% of the time by the actual words you say. You communicate 93% of the time – non verbally. (38% by the tone of your voice and 55% of the time by body language alone) And most adults believe the non-verbal as more accurate – especially women who are far more intuitive to non-verbal communication cues than men. With men it’s usually black or white. With women, it’s more in that grey zone. Women tend to read between the lines and communicate on an emotional level. Your actions and what you are saying must be congruent to be believed. Pay attention to a person’s body language when communicating so you can pick up on subtle nuances and depict what’s really on their mind. – Great article by Rita Rocker – Enjoy the read 🙂

  1. Good link to Rita’s story. I try to keep my body language in check with what I am being spoken to or when I am speaking. I am definately not 100% successful.

  2. Me either Liz – Easy to day – tough to do sometimes. Appreciate the comment. Thanks for reading the post.
