Communication Sans Words

As someone with a world-class resting bitch-face, I know the power of body language. Just the other day, our own Kimmy Moss brought of the idea of finishing out our social gathering without words leaving us to guess who could communicate best. Our minds swirled with the notion of the task at hand.

Not twenty-four hours later I had two gentlemen come to my house to mount something to the wall. Neither of them spoke as they were both deaf. Even without a real use of sign language, all three of us communicated clearly and effectively. Heck, they did a small construction task without a single spoken word.

This, of course, begs the question, “How are you communicating non-verbally?” Are using the true power of this communication style? When I reflect on my own behavior I’d give myself a B+ with non-verbal communication with strangers, but a D- when it comes to non-verbal communication with friends and family. Do you also have contrasting behavior between known and unknown people in your life?
