  • Body Language - 288 words
    Body Language Among the many ways of communicating with one another may ultimately be the way we use our voice; but it is in body language, the non-verbal means of communication, do we then come to the realization that actions do speak louder than words. This saying is ever so evident in the way teen or young adult couples display their feelings for eachother. It may be simple to tell someone how much you love or care for them; but to show it is another thing. A common gesture men act upon is the opening of the door of a restaurant or a car for their female partner. This not only displays politeness, but also shows his partner that he cares even if it's just common curtsey to do so. In addit ...

  • Body Language: Cultural Or Universal - 1,197 words
    Body Language: Cultural Or Universal? Body language and various other nonverbal cues have long been recognized as being of great importance to the facilitation of communication. There has been a long running debate as to whether body language signals and their meanings are culturally determined or whether such cues are innate and thus universal. The nature versus nurture dichotomy inherent in this debate is false; one does not preclude the other's influence. Rather researcher's should seek to address the question how much of nonverbal communication is innate and how much is culturally defined? Are there any true universal nonverbal cues or just universal tendencies modified to suit cultural ...

    ... is tolerated. In private there is a great deal of touching and less privacy than in Western homes. Traditionally young people walk behind their parents and wives walk behind their husbands. Arabs are also very sensitive to nonverbal behaviour. They too engage in a great deal of behaviour that is ritualized or socially determined; it is the nonverbal cues that clarify meaning. Tradition dictates that interactants should control their emotions and the pitch of their voice. In reality men often show powerful displays of emotion, even going so far as to tear at their clothing and scream in public (Hottinger, 1963). Interpersonal attitudes are conveyed almost entirely by nonverbal cues. Becau ...

  • Communications In Observation Women Are More Noticeably Shy Then Men Nonverbally, Their Body Language Seems To Communicate Fe - 530 words
    Communications in Observation Women are more noticeably shy then men. Non-verbally, their "body language" seems to communicate feelings of great uncertainty and self-consciousness. For example, I observed a woman in a bus en route to the Cherry Hill Mall. Her and a young man sitting directly across from her were engaged in what was apparently a mutual flirt. But the man seemed much more confident and cocky than did the female. For one thing, he was calm and relaxed. The woman, however, kept her arms folded over a purse that she clung to rather tightly. Moreover, the female had a strong tendency to look down more often than the male and although her admiration for him was obvious,-- she seeme ...

    April 13, 2000 Music 100 Megan Miskill: Junior Recital On April 4th, I made my way to the music building to see Megan Miskill perform her Junior Music recital. Her concert was shared with a violin player, Trevor Corneliusen, but for this paper, I will only discuss Megans performance. She sang three sets of pieces: Schubert, Faure and Mozart. Each set was contrasting, yet featured her lyric soprano voice beautifully. Nick Williams was her accompanist. The first section of her concert was the Franz Schubert pieces. Schubert, a romantic composer, wrote pieces that focus mainly on nature, love, and unrequited passion. Megan sang Im Fruhling, Die Sterne, and Heimliches Leiben. Im Fruhling and Die ...

  • Baccio Della Porta - 1,766 words
    Baccio Della Porta Even the average person with little or no background in art may have heard the names Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, or Raphael. Not only because they are the most famous and noteworthy painters, sculptors, draughtsmen, designers, and inventors of the high renaissance, but also because of the countless stories and movies, fact and fiction which included these men and at least mentioned their importance, relevance, and influences on today'7s world. Many children have grown up already knowing these names, and perhaps that they were artists however simplistic that may be, after the explosion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the late eighties. Perhaps there is one high ...

  • Body Movement - 1,297 words
    Body Movement All of us are trained in the use of speech, to communicate what we mean in a way that other people will understand. And most of the time, others understand what we mean. In a telephone conversation, we communicate through speech alone. In a face-to-face meeting, part of the communication is carried in a non-verbal form, what is often called "body language" or "body movement". In the next paragraphs, I am going to show what are the positive and negative of "body language" and why it is important to us. Body language and non-verbal communication play a major role in determining how effective we are as presenters. The cues and messages that we send out while we are speaking during ...

  • Cather In The Rye Language - 1,455 words
    Cather in the Rye - Language The passage of adolescence has served as the central theme for many novels, but J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye, long a staple in academic lesson plans, has captured the spirit of this stage of life in hyper-sensitive form, dramatizing Holden Caulfield's vulgar language and melodramatic reactions. Written as the autobiographical account of a fictional teenage prep school student Holden Caulfield, The Catcher in the Rye deals with material that is socially scandalous for the times (Gwynn, 1958). As an emotional, intelligent, inquisitive, and painfully sensitive young man, Holden puts his inner world to the test through the sexual mores of his peers and elde ...

  • Communication Progresses Between People - 802 words
    Communication Progresses Between People In today's hustle and bustle of everyday life, men, women, and children walk past one another without even a friendly smile or hello. As global technology grows, communication between individuals gets more distant and less personal. Even in families, messages are left on the answering machine or as notes on the fridge. Therefore, with todays' highly competitive technological world, it is vital to receive and maintain some old-fashioned inter-personal communication. Communication throughout history progresses from face-to-face to smoke signals, to the Pony Express to Canada Post, to the telephone to telex machines to modems. The fax machine is so impers ...

  • Creativity: Beer Can Theory - 4,998 words
    ... how discrete memories become woven into a worldview. Although this account focuses on integration of the worldview through the emergence of deeper, more general concepts, the principles apply equally to integration of the psyche through the purification of intentions and emotions. A detailed account of the proposal can be found in [Gabora 1998], and elaborations in [Gabora 1999, 2000], but the basic line of reasoning goes as follows. Much as catalysis increases the number of different polymers, which in turn increases the frequency of catalysis, reminding events increase concept density by triggering abstraction - the formation of abstract concepts or categories such as 'tree' or 'big' ...

  • Defining The Symbol - 671 words
    ?Defining The Symbol ?Human beings exist and interact in a reality which they define themselves. Inside of this reality they make use of social objects, that is, anything used between to actors in social situations that have meaning and function in that social environment (Charon 46). Many social objects are used to represent something else and are interpreted to convey more meaning. These social objects are known as symbols and it is the core of the symbolic interactionist perspective. Simply defined, a symbol is something that stands for something else. In Sociology, a symbol is classified as a social object that the members of a society have agreed represents a concept, an object, or an i ...

  • Drama And Theatre - 1,416 words
    Drama And Theatre The question asked is 'what is drama?' Can we truly define it? Is there a'textbook' definition of something that can be so personal? What is drama in relation to theatre? Why is drama so important? What are its uses, its aims? Some have said that drama develops self-esteem and encourages creativity and imagination. This is true, and will be demonstrated through examples from personal experiences. Usually the first thing that occurs in a drama class is that someone will ask for a definition of the word drama. Most of the class will look away, as if in deep thought praying that they are not called on, because they do not know the answer. At first glance, it seems a simple que ...

  • Effective Listening - 1,416 words
    Effective Listening Effective Listening Abstract The ability to listen well is an important tool for understanding others. Sadly, very few people know how to listen well. In fact, most people can think of only one or two good listeners in their lives. Listening is not simply agreeing - it is much more. Good listeners are able to better understand and respond to others, complete assignments accurately, settle disagreements before they escalate, and establish rapport with difficult people. Listening is often confused with hearing. This serious misconception can lead us to believe that good listening is instinctive. In fact, good listening is an active, sophisticated process - a learned behavio ...

    Factors Of Development For Relationships Factors of Development for Relationships Relationships are a very important part of life. They tend to bring our lives happiness. In my opinion communication with a person, and honesty with a person are the main factors that play the strongest roles in developing good relationships. Communication is vital to developing relationships. All relationships start off with communication whether it be body language or talking. This is how we find out about one another and get to know each other better. For example, if you were walking and passed by someone and you make eye contact you might smile or nod. The next time you pass by them you might say hello. Thi ...
