According to Survey of Communication Study, nonverbal communication is defined as “Any meaning conveyed through sounds, behaviors, and artifacts other than words” (2016, Chapter 3). This is further broken down into eight distinct types of nonverbal communication. The photo I chose fits into two of the defined channels of nonverbal communication; kinesics and proxemics. In my chosen photo, the two women appear to be sharing some sort of gossip. It looks as though they are talking about someone or something that may be curious or even uncomfortable for one of them, perhaps a secret. This photo is a display of kinesics; the use of body language and facial expressions (Survey of Communication Study, 2016). The body movements of the woman on the left seem to indicate that whatever she is whispering is secretive. She is covering her mouth perhaps to avoid lip readers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
