How do groups communicate verbally and non-verbally?
First i’d like to define
Verbal communication- is a form involving words, spoken, written or signed.
Nonverbal communication – includes body language, like gestures, facial expressions, eye contact and posture.
For example in this photo I took at a water park shows a lot of non-verbal communication going on. Not to mention all the verbal communication a.k.a yelling and screaming.
Non-verbally you can see the young girl to the left holding onto the women’s hand screaming and running away. We can see without being there that she is trying to get out-of-the-way of the huge wave coming. Which is a another good example of non-verbal communication that she determined; she could tell the wave was aggressive and fast by hearing and seeing the reactions of the people in-front of her.
Groups like this at a water park consisting of people who most-likely do not know each other and they have a lot of verbal and non-verbal communication happening between them.
You can determine how scary a ride is by looking at the faces of the riders as you walk by the attractions. You can hear people screaming because of rides or even at each other in the parking lot.
I believe this is a good example of Verbal and Non-verbal communication because it makes you step back and realize how many “conversations” you may be having throughout a day.
