Research has shown that in actual face-to-face contact, the success of communication is broken down into 3 components
- Tone of voice
- Gestures or body language
Words are a very small percentage of ‘how we really communicate’. In fact, the words contribute only 7% towards the overall effectiveness of the communication, tone contributes 38% and Body Language contributes 55%. This clearly highlights the importance of Body Language in our daily life.
Body Language has a major impact on one’s personality. Most of the time, one is not aware of one’s postures and gestures but people who observe us are able to figure out in case there is something wrong. It is, therefore, important that one should be aware of right body postures and gestures in order to exhibit a confident personality.
