"Nonverbal communication is the process of communication through sending and receiving wordless (mostly visual) cues between people. It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as body language (kinesics), but nonverbal communication encompasses much more, such as use of voice (paralanguage), touch (haptics), distance (proxemics), and physical environments/appearance. Typically overlooked in nonverbal communication are proxemics, or the informal space around the body and chronemics: the use of time. Not only considered eye contact, oculesics comprises the actions of looking while talking and listening, frequency of glances, patterns of fixation, pupil dilation, and blink rate."
"When we interact with others, we continuously give and receive wordless signals. All of our nonverbal behaviors—the gestures we make, the way we sit, how fast or how loud we talk, how close we stand, how much eye contact we make—send strong messages. These messages don't stop when you stop speaking either. Even when you're silent, you're still communicating nonverbally.
Oftentimes, what comes out of our mouths and what we communicate through our body language are two totally different things. When faced with these mixed signals, the listener has to choose whether to believe your verbal or nonverbal message, and, in most cases, they're going to choose the nonverbal because it's a natural, unconscious language that broadcasts our true feelings and intentions in any given moment."
In Neojungian Typology, there are two different forms of nonverbal communication used by types:
* Types with Organic Execution (OE) and Deterministic Processing (DP) use affective articulation and analytic listening.
* Types with Deterministic Execution (DE) and Organic Processing (OP) use analytic articulation and affective listening.
Affective articulation will be highly aware of the nonverbal communication during articulation. This means that the bottom-up system of the brain will be used to a larger extent than for types with analytic articulation.
Affective listening will be highly aware of nonverbal communication during listening. This means that the bottom-up system of the brain will be used to a larger extent than for types with analytic listening.
Analytic articulation will be highly aware of the verbal communication during articulation. This means that the top-down system of the brain will be used to a larger extent than for types with affective articulation.
Analytic listening will be highly aware of the verbal communication during listening. This means that the top-down system of the brain will be used to a larger extent than for types with affective listening.
The nonverbal communication is handled almost entirely unconsciously by the bottom-up system that will be more described in more detail in the next revision of the Neojungian Typology.
