Describe how the nonverbal messages you selected can replace verbal ones.
Nonverbal communication is the transmission of messages or signals without the use of words. It can be used to supplement verbal communication or to replace it altogether. There are many different types of nonverbal communication, including:
- Haptics: This is the use of touch to communicate. For example, a handshake can be used to greet someone, a pat on the back can be used to offer support, and a hug can be used to express affection.
- Proxemics: This is the use of space to communicate. For example, standing close to someone can be used to show intimacy or dominance, and standing far away can be used to show distance or indifference.
