Compose an original discussion board post, of no less than 250 words, considering all of the prompts below:
What meanings does the use of space convey? When someone has a larger house, a larger office, or a larger seat on the airplane than yours, what conclusions do you make about that person?
Touch is a form of nonverbal communication that is highly affected by social and cultural rules. What are some of the rules of touch that you perceive?
Why do you suppose we tend to believe nonverbal cues, even when they contradict what a person is saying? Can you think of a situation in which you would believe the person’s verbal message instead?
