Chapter 1 How much of our meaning derives from nonverbal behavior? -Research suggests that approximately 60-65% of social meaning derived from nonverbal behaviors. pg 4 When do we rely more heavily on verbal messages for meaning? -Studies show that adults often interpret messages by relying more on nonverbal than vernal cues . People also rely more on nonverbal than verbal communication to send positive and negative messages to relational partners, such as spouses, family members, or best friends. Verbal messages usually account for most of the meaning when people are interpreting factual or persuasive messages. pg 4-5 Why are nonverbal messages seen as more believable? -It is seem as more believeable than verbal messages because people view nonverbal behaviors as spontaneous expressions of internal thoughts and feelings that reveal our "inner selves." When interpreting messages, people often pay more attention to the visual channel, which includes facial expressions and body movement, than to the verbal channel. pg 5 a.) Behavior: b.)
