It’s something that we all do every day. Not just by talking to each other and writing emails but when we gesture at the person in car in front of us, roll our eyes at a stupid comment or touch a friend’s arm while we’re talking. And that’s just interpersonal communication. Then there are the messages that we send in how we dress and act, and the agenda-driven communication of government and businesses trying both subtlely and overtly to get their messages out to us.
That’s what I love about communication – it’s everywhere and everyone does it. Even the person who refuses to speak is communicating something, although it may be hard to figure out what it is they are saying.
