What is Your Body Language Saying About You?
Your body language, nonverbal cues, tell a lot about
how you perform at a job, career and on stage as a public speaker. Research suggests that nonverbal cues are more important
than verbal ones. I came across one study that spoke about body language comprising 55% of the force of any response, whereas
the verbal content only provides 7%, and "paralanguage," or the intonation, pauses and sighs given when answering or speaking,
represents 38% of the emphasis. Our schools put more emphasis on the spoken word. I suggest you learn to use a few simple
tips to accentuate your body language as a public speaker or even interview for a job.
