Communicating without words
distinguish between the meaning that we "give" in words, and the meanings that we "give off" in non-verbal signals.
Your ability to use and interpret nonverbal messages effectively depends on your ability to recognize various sources of nonverbal messages.

Our attraction to others because of their appearance

How you dress

2. Arriving to a business meeting in jeans and t-shirt
3. Responding to a work related e-mail with abbreviations
4. Mimicking the other party's handshake during initial introductions
Handshakes are a common type of ritualistic touch used in business situations or when meeting people at social functions for the first time
Attentive & Involved
High Self-Esteem & Emotional Control
Most verbal communication is interpersonal. Interpersonal is often thought to be face to face but can also be performed through written word.
Rules that give accurate meanings to messages.
Denotative Meaning- What the words mean literally.
Connotative Meaning- What the words mean according to the speaker and listener.
The word "hoe." It's denotative meaning is a farming tool. This is also its connotative meaning for a farmer. For others, it's another word for a prostitute.
Connotative Meanings can lead to misunderstandings.
Proximity is the space and distance we maintain from others in our communication with them
Different conversational distances affect communication
Jargon- Language used by a particular group of people that may not be understood by people outside of that group.
Euphemisms- Pleasant words used in place of blunt ones but have the same meaning.
Keeping Things Concise
It's best to keep things concise when using verbal communication. Listeners tend to loose interest if the message is too long. Plus, if the message has a negative meaning, it can make things worse.
5. Using the connotative definition of a word rather than the denotative definition
