Spencer Kelly (2006), Associate Professor of Psychology at Colgate University, measured peaks and valleys in the brain waves of participants to understand whether body language that is inconsistent with the accompanying verbal communication is picked up by the brain.To test the way the brain processes verbal and non-verbal communication, brain waves were monitored with the use of an electroencephalograph.To begin, try talking about yourself and your feelings.Express both positive and negative feelings about how you feel about yourself, your partner, or anything concerning the relationship. In order to maintain a relationship, couples must be willing to exchange information about themselves and capable of feeling confident, honest, direct, and clear when discussing realities about their past, present, and future. The way couples communicate with one another can be a reflection of their personalities, age, backgrounds, and lifestyles.
In order to converse effectively with your significant other, there are certain things one can try.
By paying closer attention to other people's unspoken behaviors, you will improve your own ability to communicate nonverbally.
If someone's words do not match their nonverbal behaviors, you should pay careful attention.
We've all heard the statistics several times before, that body language accounts for more than 50% of our communication.
It is fair to say that both verbal and non-verbal communication impact on the success of our relationships.
