Nonverbal communication occurs in mediated messages: When we think about communication, we often focus on how we exchange information using words. While verbal communication is important, humans relied on nonverbal communication for thousands of years before we developed the capability to communicate with words. Nonverbal communication is a process of generating meaning using behavior other than words. Rather than thinking of nonverbal communication as the opposite of or as separate from verbal communication, it’s more accurate to view them as operating side by side—as part of the same system. Body orientation: Positioning yourself away from someone can give that person the message that you really don’t want to talk to them without saying a word.

Demonstrative communication, which focuses more on nonverbal communication, plays an important role in how messages are perceived and understood. Body language, facial expressions, eye contact, and body positions are ways to communicate nonverbally.
