Paper 1 How does space effect the way that we interact with one another? Does being too close or too faraway limit the way that two people perceive what is being said to them? Space between two people that are talking can not only be a giveaway about what those people are talking about, but it can also display how close those two people are to one another. If there is rarely any space between two people that interact with one another then one can determine that these individuals are either very close or they are speaking about an intimate subject. Of course space is not the only indicator to how close or intimate two people are, but it is definitely a pertinent factor that determines nonverbal behavior. In this paper, I will argue that conversations cannot be hindered or facilitated due to the proximity of the person that one is attempting to have a dialogue with. Does the space between two people that are having a conversation have anything at all to do with how well they perceive to know the other person they are interacting with? For this paper I chose to use one of my close friends, Brian. As directed, Brian and I sat three different distances away from one another. The first one was the farthest at five feet, the second distance was three feet, and the closest distance was one foot. While we were five feet apart, I noticed that both Brian and I were leaning towards one another and our usage of hand movements increased. Additionally, we were both using facial expressions to add to what we were saying. I noticed that it became hard for me to pay attention to what he was saying because he was so distant.

    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.
