Interpersonal functions of nonverbal communication

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Nonverbal communication helps people accomplish several interpersonal goals, such as: forming first impressions, developing and maintaining relationships, communicating dominance, and expressing emotions. This chapter examines research on these topics, including work on the what-is-beautiful-is-good hypothesis, thin slice impressions, positive involvement (immediacy), flirtation, the bright and dark sides of nonverbal dominance, and the expression of affectionate and hostile emotions. Dyadic patterns related to immediacy, dominance, and emotional expression are also discussed.
