Question and answer
identify the charecteristics of communication that is not based on formal language system
Nonverbal communication can be incorporated in a person?s dress. In our society, a person wearing a police uniform is already communicating an important message before they say a word. [ [ Another example is a man?s business suit, which is perceived by some as communicating an air of efficiency and professionalism. While each of these cues conveys a message, so does its absence. In some settings, failing to express a nonverbal cue also communicates meaning. A policeman out of uniform is called ?plainclothes? and is seen as deliberately trying to conceal his role. To some, this may make him
seem smart or efficient, while others may consider him sneaky or untrustworthy. In the same way, a businessman who does not wear a suit is conveying an air of casualness which some would consider slightly less professional. In the modern world, ?dressing down? implies a relaxation of professional standards that is much more than just a change of clothes. Many cues are based on learned cultural standards, but there are some elements of nonverbal communication that are universal. Paul Eckman?s landmark research on facial expressions in the 1960?s found that the expressions for emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and surprise are the same across all cultural barriers. ] ]
