Demonstrative Communication 1 Demonstrative Communication xxxxx University Of Phoenix BCOM/275 Demonstrative Communication 2 When you mention the word communication it can be described in several different ways. A plain explicate is, communication is the process of transmitting, conveying or sending and accepting or receiving messages (Cheesebro, O’Connor, and Rios, 2010). It rally’s with the reciprocation of messages, data or ideas, either thru writing, signals, speech, behavior or kinesics. Communication can be undertaken either verbally or nonverbally. Verbal communication surrounds written and oral communication. Nonverbal communication may be performed by facial expressions, tone of voice, body posture or gestures, and eye contact. Demonstrative communication can be effective and ineffective. Many do not realize that this form of communication can also be positive and negative for both the sender and the receiver. Demonstrative communication involves sending or transmitting and accepting silent messages (Nayah, 2010). It is often acted upon to draw attention to verbal communication, despite the fact that it can work single singlehandly to express messages by itself. The most commonly used amongst every nonverbal communication is facial expressions. As stated by Nayah (2010), it is likely that body languages as well as facial expressions represent approximately 55% of all communication. Demonstrative communication emphasizes verbal communication. For example, if a person walks into a business dressed and well groomed, provides a firm handshake and has a pleasant smile; their conduct may articulate more or less a person on a job interview. An individual could reckon on these behaviors to strengthen the verbal performance (Sutton, 2011). When people Demonstrative Communication 3 meet, they each can sense the character of the other. You can tell if a person is friendly by their hello, if they are smiling while conversing and how they treat you personally. A person can also determine a clue on the impression the person is giving you thru their nonverbal actions. The persons involved can always look at each other to determining whether or not the reaction is negative or positive. Then you can use it to your own benefit. For example, if a car salesman quotes a prospective buyer the price of the car and the buyer looks surprised and grits their teeth. Perhaps at that point the buyer is realizing the price is too high. This also gives the car salesman the opportunity to visual see at that moment the price being asked is too high for the buyer. Demonstrative communication provides perspicuity (Sutton, 2011). The personality of a person is exposed by the way he or she shows themselves to other people. For example, when a woman can dress stylish and walk with confidence, she shows she is in control. Herself assurance allows her the ability to achieve deference without pursuing it. Each day people bring demonstrative communication into play unknowingly. Symbols, hairstyles, clothing, tattoos, paintings, and architecture are several forms of demonstrative communication. Although these styles of communication are positive people must be careful how they exploit it since it may be misunderstood. Oftentimes, facial expressions, gestures, and appearances, which include body language can easily imply something else to people. It may be unfriendly for someone to misunderstand a person they hardly know. For instance, you are engaged in conversation with someone who has their arms folded. They may just be cold or feeling comfortable. In some occasion nonverbal communication shall not be only reckon on since there are no regulations pertaining to the uncommon expressions and gestures they imply (Sutton, 2011). Demonstrative Communication 4 Demonstrative communication requires the intricacies the languages have to provide (Sutton, 2011). A person cannot deliver the solution of the day to anyone lacking words; expect the person can mime the entire story. Even with miming a person is not always adequate to express the entire tale. Demonstrative communication encompasses some degree of distance (Sutton, 2011). Usually when you wave to someone or say hello or goodbye and the person is far away, they may not catch the message. The same goes if you are talking on the telephone and a person is nodding their head at the same time. It does not necessarily mean that the other person is agreeing with what is being said. In this instance demonstrative communication does not convey perfectly. Demonstrative communication requires listening and responding which is similar to other forms of communication. You may have heard it said “action speaks louder than words”. Well, a person can gain knowledge from someone else’s actuations rather that just their words. There are many times a person may have to listen with their eyes instead of their ears. If a person constantly tells you do not put trash in their garbage receptacle. Next thing you are aware the entire neighborhood gets a notice about it, no one wants it either. Then you need to see what is being said and look for another form of trash disposal. It is imperative that a person applies effective listening skills while accepting some style of communications. This includes culminating an attention together with the sender and the communication (Cheesbro, O’Connor, and Rios, 2010). You must bring the appropriate response into play to advance awareness to both the sender and the receiver. Demonstrative Communication 5 Demonstrative Communication is being exploited in everyday activities whether knowingly or unknowingly. It may be in the form of a wink, a smile, a wave, or stylish dressing. However done it is one of the many ways of executing demonstrative communication. Interacting and listening to a demonstrative communication is an art by itself. Remember any respondent may misunderstand or misinterpret a demonstrative communication.
