Personal Non-verbal Behavior Assessment
For at least four time a day for three days, conduct a personal nonverbal behavior assessment. You might set an alarm on your watch or phone to particular times or choose four daily markers, such as purchasing a cup of coffee or going to the library, to act as a reminder. At these four previously chosen times, stop what you’re doing and pay attention to your nonverbal behavior. Were you leaning or slouching? What was your facial expression? Where you using any gestures? After conducting your nonverbal behavior self-assessment, do you see any patterns or habits in your nonverbal behavior? If yes, describe them. Could any of these nonverbal patterns or habits be misunderstood by others, affecting your ability to communication? If yes, describe which ones and how. Have you identified any nonverbal behaviors that you would like to change? If yes, describe the behavior as you exhibit it now and then describe the behavior as if you have already changed it. How might changing this behavior affect your ability to communicate? You must make two connections (references) between the assignment and your Adler and Proctor II (2017) text.
