Ty Mailath 10-20-06 Communications Dr. Isaacson Interpersonal Experience A conversation can often be most thoroughly understood by observing body language and hand gestures. In these two forms of communication the intensity of emotions are frequently revealed. When two people communicate through a conversation they demonstrate anger through many hand gestures and a tense posture. Also, confidence can be observed through eye contact and either a laid back or intense approach. However, some emotions are hard to detect, especially if the person is a good liar. For example, men try to hide their sensitive feelings by exchanging stereotypical “macho man” behavior and denying their soft emotions. In the conversation I observed, I witnessed many subtle clues that affirmed or gave evidence to dispute their claims. I observed the conversation in my living room while pretending to do homework. I was sitting in my living room finishing up my homework when X walked in the room and began watching a baseball game on television. Shortly thereafter, Y takes a seat on the couch. They exchange pleasantries as their focus remains on the television. The young men begin screaming for separate reasons as an exceptional play to rob a player of a homerun was made. X becomes perturbed and starts banging a pillow against his head.

    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.
