What can we tell about our expressions and others as well? It turns out, we can tell more by someone’s expressions than what they say. Before going any further, let us take a look at the meaning of expressions in our Webster Dictionary.
Expressions-1. The process of making known one’s thoughts or feelings . 2. The conveying of a feeling in the face or voice, in a work of art, or in the performance of a piece of music.
Expressions answer much of the communication process, and is a valuable part of nonverbal communication. Expressions use our five senses, and senses send clear messages to ourselves and others. Nonverbal communication, which expressions are a huge part of is responsible for over HALF of our messages we receive from others and convey to them.
“Expressions leave impressions”. This is a small quote I wrote which I think carries a lot of weight. Think of our five senses. If we smell something bad, the first response we hand down to other and ourselves is wrinkling our nose and squinting our eyes or our eyes water.. These are all expressions of the meaning we are conveying to others about something we feel or think.
If we see something interesting or otherwise, we show we are interested or disinterested with our expressions. We must remember again, expressions leave impressions. Think about some of the most important messages we get in our life. For example, when we have been in a love relationship and someone breaks up with us. We can tell through their expressions, what they are going to say, before they say it.
When we go home, and reflect on the breakup, the saddest part of what their message conveyed to us, (the breakup) was reflected through another’s expression. Expressions tell us much, but what about those individuals who have the ability to carry a “poker face” with them wherever they go, especially to play cards. Their expressions don’t show up nearly as often as the rest of us. They, however still are communicating nonverbally. They may wring their hands together, deliberately refuse to make eye contact, because this is the very way we can tell what individuals mean.
How much weight do you place on expressions verses someone delivering a message verbally to you? I look forward to reading your comments today in the “join the discussion area” beneath this post. A poem about expressions or a quote works fine as well.
