Excerpt from Lesson:

When we communicate with other people it is not only our words that contain the meaning. On the contrary, it is said that words are 7% effective, tone of voice is 38% effective and non-verbal clues are 55% effective. By non-verbal communication we mean facial expression; gestures with hands, arms, legs; the way we sit or stand; the way we touch other people; the distance we keep between ourselves and the people we are talking to; our dress and our appearance. These all communicate a message to other people.
