When you are busy typing a report that is due tomorrow and your young son bounces in to ask for permission to buy a new computer game, you turn from your computer and hold up an open palm to indicate your desire for uninterrupted quiet.

You want your children to stop talking in the library, so you put an index finger up to your pursed lips. (Chapter 7 page 195)

    B. Adaptors
    Explanation
    When you are cold, you reach for a sweater or wrap your arms around your chest to keep warm. When it’s 102 degrees Fahrenheit in the shade without a breeze, you may reach for a fan to make your own breeze. These behaviors are examples of adaptors—nonverbal behaviors that help you satisfy a personal need and adapt to the immediate situation. When you adjust your glasses, scratch a mosquito bite, or comb your hair, you are using movement to help manage your personal needs and adapt to your surroundings—and you’re communicating something about yourself to whoever may be present. (Chapter 7 pg 195)

    True or False?  It’s generally easier to interpret anger, sadness, happiness, and nervousness from vocal cues alone and harder to identify disgust, shame, fear, jealousy, love, satisfaction, and sympathy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is generally easier to interpret anger, sadness, happiness, and nervousness from vocal cues alone because these emotions tend to have distinct and recognizable vocal expressions. On the other hand, emotions like disgust, shame, fear, jealousy, love, satisfaction, and sympathy may not have as clear and easily identifiable vocal cues, making them harder to interpret solely based on vocal expressions.

    People announce ownership of space with territorial markers—things that signify the area has been claimed—much as explorers once planted flags claiming uncharted land for their kings. When you are studying at the library, for example, and need to hop up to make a photocopy, you might leave behind a notebook or a pencil. In rural areas, landowners post signs at the borders of their property to keep hunters off their territory. Signs, locks, electronic security systems, and other devices secure home and office territories. (Bebe Chapter 7, page 202)
