Nonverbal Communication Influenced by Cultural Values - Introductary Paragaph, submission 1 (Incomplete)


Nonverbal Communication Influenced by Cultural Values - Introductary Paragaph, submission 1 (Incomplete)

Nonverbal communication plays an enormous role in our everyday lives, this form of communication influences the way we express whatever it is we are communicating and also influences the way in which the receiver understands. We aren’t born with an understanding of nonverbal communication; we learn it through our parents, friends, relatives, and visual media. Our understanding of nonverbal communication is by-product of our surroundings, where we live and with whom we associate with. For instance, a child who grows up in America learns different ways to communicate nonverbally than a child who grows up in war torn Afghanistan. I plan to research how different cultures use nonverbal communication and what influenced them while growing up to learn to communicate that way. I expect that the state of ones country, being war torn, food deprived, or extremely wealthy has an effect on how a person learns to communicate nonverbally.
