Demonstrative Communication
What is Demonstrative Communication? In order to accurately define the true meaning and concept of “Demonstrative Communication,” one must understand the meaning of each word separately. The word “Demonstrative” is the adjective form of the verb “Demonstrate.” As defined in a dictionary means “to describe, explain, or illustrate by example, specimens, experiments, or the like: to demonstrate the force of gravity by dropping and object,” to demonstrate anger by slamming your fist against something, or to demonstrate love through touching or soft eye contact. The word “Communication” defined in this case means “something imparted, interchanged, or transmitted.” Therefore, we can deduce that demonstrative communication is the act of giving something (the sender) to someone, and receiving a similar thing from them (the receiver) in return through the same illustrative act; in essence Demonstrative Communication is non-verbal.
There are many different ways to communicate nonverbally, and the outcome can be positive or negative based on the attitude or the personality type of the sender and the receiver. For example, some gestures that are commonly perceived as negative, may be an individual’s way of relaxing, or settling into deep-thought; like interlocking   ones arms across the chest (which commonly means closure or disconnect), or squinting your eyes, which could be mistaken for frowning, when actuality your contact lens has shifted in the wrong direction, causing discomfort. Nonetheless, many people underestimate the power of nonverbal communication, and the demonstrative personas it has by definition.
Nonverbal communication goes far beyond head, arm, leg, feet, and general
body posture positioning.   Deep within our brain which controls activity, interest, mimicry
and consistency are the keys that unlock the power of nonverbal communication.
