What are they trying to “say” to the other person?

Social Observational Activity

Spend some time observing another adult interacting with at least one other adult (at home, in a park, at the mall, at work, etc.) and reflect on the nonverbal cues and body language that they tend to use. What are they trying to “say” to the other person?

Locate scholarly materials to help support your accuracy of what the person’s body language and nonverbal communication is conveying (eye contact, posture, appearance, leaning in, facial expressions, artifacts [a uniform, etc.] gestures, etc.) Be descriptive in your analysis of all non-verbal communication that you identify and body language examples.


Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length. Include at least two scholarly references in addition to the course textbook to support your analysis and position.
