Class notes from this week that will also be on the test Social polite touch initial introductions like business relationships or formal occasions like a handshake. Friendship warmth touch most ambiguous type of touch and least to misunderstandings between people. Too much touch is being too friendly but too little touch might makes you seem cold. Love and intimacy touch only for a very few special individuals like close friends family spouses. Sexual touch intimate and most restricted. There are 6 forms of taboo touching: 1. Strangers are the “untouchables” like when you bump someone you say sorry 2. Harmful touches should be avoided children know don’t hit or bite 3. Avoid startling touches a tap on shoulder is something startling. 4. Avoid the interruption touch kiss your partner during an intense movie scene (rejection usually occurs) 5. Don’t move others don’t just move people quickly say “sorry I need to get through” 6. Avoid rub it in wife says “go walk them to the door” then slaps his arm to do it To deal with touch violation: assume the violation is accidental, use descriptive statements to state that you don’t want to be touched that way, uses intense nonverbal cues and a direct firm demand and an apology if it was a mistake.

Beautiful people are viewed to be sociable, happy, sexy etc. These people also tend to get paid more. Bilateral Symmetry the right and left sides match each other. Waisttohip ratio the smaller the waist is compared to the hip (hourglass shape) the greater the perception of attractiveness. Wedge shape broad shoulders and narrow waist and hips Oculesics eye contact and how it regulates conversational turn taking, communicates involvement and establishes connection with others.

Display rules cultural specific prescriptions that dictate the appropriateness of behaviors Manipulators gestures made by one part of the body usually the hands that rub, pick, squeeze, clean or groom another body part.
