Nonverbal Quotes By David B. Givens

Observations. 1. To see Nonverbal World on TV, mute the sound (gestures and body movements become clearer). 2. To hear emotion on the phone, listen with your left ear (the right brain responds to feelings and moods). 3. To feel the smoothness of silk, flannel, and flesh, touch with your left hand (the right sensory strip is more emotional than the left [in right-handed people; the reverse is (partly) true in lefties]). — David B. Givens

Nonverbal Quotes By Jean Edward Smith

As proof that HOW we see things matters, Gen. Montgomery took a preprepared text that had been deemed an innocuous complement to his American troops and delivered it in such a way that his condescension prompted more division than unity. — Jean Edward Smith

Nonverbal Quotes By Roger Wolcott Sperry

The main theme to emerge ... is that there appear to be two modes of thinking, verbal and nonverbal, represented rather separately in left and right hemispheres respectively and that our education system, as well as science in general, tends to neglect the nonverbal form of intellect. What it comes down to is that modern society discriminates against the right hemisphere. — Roger Wolcott Sperry

Nonverbal Quotes By B.F. Skinner

The simplest and most satisfactory view is that thought is simply behavior - verbal or nonverbal, covert or overt. It is not some mysterious process responsible for behavior but the very behavior itself in all the complexity of its controlling relations. — B.F. Skinner

Nonverbal Quotes By Graham Speechley

Listen with your eyes as well as your ears. — Graham Speechley

Nonverbal Quotes By Louis Cozolino

[Narratives] serve as powerful tools for high-level neural network integration. The combination of linear storyline and visual imagery woven together with verbal and nonverbal expressions of emotion activates and utilizes dedicated circuitry of both left and right hemispheres, cortical and subcortical networks, the various regions of the frontal lobes, and the hippocampus and amygdala. The cooperative and interactive activation involved in stories may be precisely what is required for scultpting and maintaining neural network integration while allowing us to combine sensations, feelings, and behaviors with conscious awareness. Further, stories link individuals into families, tribes, and nations and into a group mind linking each individual brain. It is likely that our brains have been able to become as complex as they are precisely because of the power of narratives and the group to support neural integration — Louis Cozolino

Nonverbal Quotes By Marina Abramovic

When you have a nonverbal conversation with a total stranger, then he can't cover himself with words, he can't create a wall. — Marina Abramovic

Nonverbal Quotes By Saoirse Ronan

I appreciate the written word and spoken word more, but Atonement sort of established so much of me. It was a character that didn't really speak, and I found that a lot of the roles I was gravitating toward after that were kind of nonverbal. — Saoirse Ronan

Nonverbal Quotes By Glen Davis

I was analyzing the guys' nonverbal communication.. — Glen Davis

Nonverbal Quotes By Leonard Mlodinow

One of the most surprising forms of nonverbal communication is the way we automatically adjust the amount of time we spend looking into another's eyes as a function of our relative social position. — Leonard Mlodinow

Nonverbal Quotes By A.R. Ammons

Poetry leads us to the unstructured sources of our beings, to the unknown, and returns us to our rational, structured selves refreshed. Having once experienced the mystery, plenitude, contradiction, and composure of a work of art, we afterward have a built-in resistance to the slogans and propaganda of oversimplification that have often contributed to the destruction of human life. Poetry is a verbal means to a nonverbal source. It is a motion to no-motion, to the still point of contemplation and deep realization. — A.R. Ammons

Nonverbal Quotes By Albert J. Bernstein

Don't let a Narcissist, or any other kind of vampire, get away with nonverbal disapproval. Unspoken communication has much more power than mere words because it is ambiguous. If a Narcissist says you did something wrong, you can at least disagree. If he only hints at it, you are left wondering if what you're seeing really means what you think it does, or if the whole thing is somehow your fault, or whatever else you might be imagining. ... Translate rather than pointing the finger. This is the tricky part because it is subtle, but it will make all the difference. An unsubstantiated accusation of an internal state, like, "You're bored," invites defensiveness. A translation, like, "You keep looking at the clock; I'm assuming you're bored," is much harder to deny. A Histrionic might try, but other kinds of vampires will have to concede that they are indeed looking at the clock. — Albert J. Bernstein

Nonverbal Quotes By J.K. Rowling

What is the advantage of a nonverbal spell?" Hermione's hand shot into the air. Snape took his time looking around at everybody else, making sure he had no choice, before saying curtly, "Very well - Miss Granger?" "Your adversary has no warning about what kind of magic you're about to perform," said Hermione, "which gives you a split-second advantage." "An answer copied almost word for word from The Standard Book of Spells, Grade Six," said Snape dismissively (over in the corner, Malfoy sniggered), "but correct in essentials. Yes, — J.K. Rowling

Nonverbal Quotes By Carrie Fisher

I have never been much at nonverbal communication. Additionally, I don't have much of an attention span, and what I lack in patience I make up for in ambivalence and an inability to sleep. — Carrie Fisher

Nonverbal Quotes By Joe Riggs

True deduction can only be obtained through a certain amount of self annihilation. — Joe Riggs

Nonverbal Quotes By Augustus Napier

Even if fathers are more benignly helpful, and even if they spend time with us teaching us what they know, rarely do they tell uswhat they feel. They stand apart emotionally: strong perhaps, maybe caring in a nonverbal, implicit way; but their internal world remains mysterious, unseen, "What are they really like?" we ask ourselves. "What do they feel about us, about the world, about themselves? — Augustus Napier

Nonverbal Quotes By Rowan Atkinson

Mr. Bean is at his best when he is not using words, but I am equally at home in both verbal and nonverbal expression. — Rowan Atkinson

Nonverbal Quotes By Asa Don Brown

Communication can be sent or received through verbal or nonverbal cues. — Asa Don Brown

Nonverbal Quotes By Temple Grandin

Children between the ages of five to ten years are even more variable. They are going to vary from very high functioning, capable of doing normal school work, to nonverbal who have all kinds of neurological problems. — Temple Grandin

Nonverbal Quotes By Temple Grandin

Mild autism can give you a genius like Einstein. If you have severe autism, you could remain nonverbal. You don't want people to be on the severe end of the spectrum. But if you got rid of all the autism genetics, you wouldn't have science or art. All you would have is a bunch of social 'yak yaks.' — Temple Grandin

Nonverbal Quotes By Joseph Michelli

Genuineness requires listening through both verbal and nonverbal channels. — Joseph Michelli

Nonverbal Quotes By Maggie Mamen

Rather than being nonverbal, individuals with NLD generally present with abundant verbal ability, with many showing precocious language development and
high levels of vocabulary and general knowledge. — Maggie Mamen

Nonverbal Quotes By Temple Grandin

I was nonverbal until I was four years old. Back in the 50s, I was the kind of kid they used to just put away in an institution. But then you get the milder autism where there's no speech delay, but they're socially awkward. Those kids were around when I was a child. They were just called geeks and nerds. — Temple Grandin

Nonverbal Quotes By Caroline Thompson

Working with Tim Burton is like a psychic experience -Tim waves his hands and says, 'I don't know,' and you go home and do it. He's the most articulate nonverbal person in the world. He doesn't say a word, and you know exactly what it means. — Caroline Thompson

Nonverbal Quotes By Thomm Quackenbush

He seemed like the sort to have a vast arsenal of smirks, shaped over a decade of nonverbal conversation. — Thomm Quackenbush

Nonverbal Quotes By W. Anton

When you are able to confidently hold the gaze of women with the intent of waiting for them to nonverbally submit and look away first, you will notice that some women simply never do. Some even start smiling or blushing, and some look away for a split second only to resume the eye contact immediately. When a woman does this, it is because you just gave her a very powerful nonverbal compliment; you told her that she is attractive and interesting to you, an attractive (confident enough to keep eye contact) person yourself. This is perhaps the oldest form of compliment available to mankind. It is entirely universal, and it conveys the same message all over the world. — W. Anton

Nonverbal Quotes By Jodi Picoult

So much of marriage was implicit and nonverbal. Had I gotten so complacent I'd forgotten to communicate? — Jodi Picoult

Nonverbal Quotes By Max Lucado

Wise is the man who learns the nonverbal language of his wife, who notes the nod and discerns the gestures. It's not just what is said, but how. It's not just how, but when. It's not just when, but where. Good husbanding is good decoding. You've got to read the signs. — Max Lucado

Nonverbal Quotes By Leonard Mlodinow

Scientists attach great importance to the human capacity for spoken language. But we also have a parallel track of nonverbal communication, which may reveal more than our carefully chosen words, and sometimes be at odds with them. — Leonard Mlodinow

Nonverbal Quotes By Michio Kaku

In science fiction, telepaths often communicate across language barriers, since thoughts are considered to be universal. However, this might not be true. Emotions and feelings may well be nonverbal and universal, so that one could telepathically send them to anyone, but rational thinking is so closely tied to language that it is very unlikely that complex thoughts could be sent across language barriers. Words will still be sent telepathically in their original language. — Michio Kaku

Nonverbal Quotes By Janet Echelman

The most powerful part of the art is experiential, yet it's the hardest to describe because it's nonverbal. — Janet Echelman

Nonverbal Quotes By Kenneth L. Pike

Verbal and nonverbal activity is a unified whole, and theory and methodology should be organized or created to treat it as such. — Kenneth L. Pike

Nonverbal Quotes By John W. Gardner

All that we know about the interaction between leaders and constituents or followers tells us that communication and influence flow in both directions; and in that two-way communication, nonrational, nonverbal, and unconscious elements play their part. — John W. Gardner

Nonverbal Quotes By Daniel Kahneman

The testers found that training attention not only improved executive control; scores on nonverbal tests of intelligence also improved and the improvement was maintained for several months. — Daniel Kahneman

Nonverbal Quotes By Nancy C. Anderson

Couples who are in love want to gaze into each other's eyes. Prolonged eye contact is one of the most powerful nonverbal ways we communicate interest in others. So — Nancy C. Anderson

Nonverbal Quotes By Gerald G. Jampolsky

Do I choose to experience Peace of Mind or do I choose to experience Conflict? Do I choose to experience Love or Fear? Do I choose to be a Love Finder or a Fault Finder? Do I choose to be a Love Giver or a Love Sender? Is this communication (verbal or nonverbal) Loving to the other person and is it Loving to me? — Gerald G. Jampolsky

Nonverbal Quotes By Robin Marantz Henig

Lies can be verbal or nonverbal, kindhearted or self-serving, devious or bald-faced; they can be lies of omission or lies of commission; they can be lies that undermine national security or lies that make a child feel better. And each type might involve a unique neural pathway. — Robin Marantz Henig

Nonverbal Quotes By Jessica Abel

My drawing, like that of most cartoonists, is intended first of all to be functional: to create believable space and communicate information. My strongest point in drawing has always been my ability to show characters' nonverbal communication through facial expression and posture. — Jessica Abel

Nonverbal Quotes By Tom Noonan

The whole idea of WHAT HAPPENED WAS ... is not about dating. It is more about people who are not committed to who they are or are indifferent about their life in general, which is how I felt about myself when I wrote it. I had turned 40 and I was unhappy and I wanted to write about that. Dating just became the framework ... I like all those fringy, weird, nonverbal, quiet, tiny little things, those powerful interchanges between people, things that go unsaid, that people know are happening all the time but nobody wants to talk about. That's what I want to make movies about. — Tom Noonan

Nonverbal Quotes By Steven Pinker

The elegant study ... is consistent with the themes of modern cognitive neuroscience . Every aspect of thought and emotion is rooted in brain structure and function, including many psychological disorders and, presumably, genius. The study confirms that the brain is a modular system comprising multiple intelligences, mostly nonverbal. — Steven Pinker

Nonverbal Quotes By David B. Givens

Women are superior to men in decoding nonverbal cues (Rosenthal and DePaulo 1979). — David B. Givens

Nonverbal Quotes By Richard Rohr

Our first experience of life is primarily felt in the *body.* ... We know ourselves in the security of those who hold us and gaze upon us. It's not heard or seen or thought it's felt. That's the original knowing. — Richard Rohr

Nonverbal Quotes By Henepola Gunaratana

Peace is not a thought, not a concept; it is a nonverbal experience. — Henepola Gunaratana

Nonverbal Quotes By John Stoker

93/7 Rule: 93% of communication occurs through nonverbal behavior & tone; only 7% of communication takes place through the use of words. — John Stoker

Nonverbal Quotes By Graeme Simsion

Did you get the cup?"
I held it up.
"Is it the right one?" she said.
I am not good at nonverbal communication, but I believe I managed to convey the fact that while I might be a petty thief, I do not make errors of observation. — Graeme Simsion

Nonverbal Quotes By Terry Teachout

Instrumental music is nonverbal and thus radically ambiguous. It doesn't lend itself to what might be called content-oriented analysis, though plenty of intellectuals have tried to analyze it in precisely that way. — Terry Teachout

Nonverbal Quotes By Edward Sapir

Nonverbal communication is an elaborate secret code that is written nowhere, known by none, and understood by all. — Edward Sapir

Nonverbal Quotes By Daniel Goleman

People's emotions are rarely put into words , far more often they are expressed through other cues.
the key to intuiting another's feelings is in the ability to read nonverbal channels , tone of voice , gesture , facial expression and the like — Daniel Goleman

Nonverbal Quotes By Camille Paglia

Elizabeth Taylor is, in my opinion, the greatest actress in film history. She instinctively understands the camera and its nonverbal intimacies. Opening her violet eyes, she takes us into the liquid realm of emotion, which she inhabits by Pisces intuition. Richard Burton said that Taylor showed him how to act for the camera. Economy and understatement are essential. At her best, Elizabeth Taylor simply is. An electric, erotic charge vibrates the space between her face and the lens. It is an extra-sensory, pagan phenomenon. — Camille Paglia

Nonverbal Quotes By Kelly Moran

I'll never get to hear her say, 'I love you, Mommy,' like other parents take for granted. — Kelly Moran

Nonverbal Quotes By Larry Moss

You must create the character's internal life. What do I mean by internal life? I mean the thoughts, feelings, memories, and inner decisions that may not be spoken. When we look into the eyes of actors giving fully realized performances, we can see them thinking. We're interested in what they're experiencing that may never be spoken, that quality of nonverbal expression - which is as much a part of the characters as breathing and as real as what they say and do. This is their internal life. It helps us believe in the characters and care about them. — Larry Moss

Nonverbal Quotes By Jordan Castillo Price

Jacob cut his gaze to me. I wasn't quiet sure how to convey, /I know we hate him, but based on the circumstances, it was the most logical thing to do/, with a nonverbal signal. I widened my eyes a little. — Jordan Castillo Price

Nonverbal Quotes By Betty Edwards

Art has this long history, predating even language, of expressing nonverbal information. — Betty Edwards

Nonverbal Quotes By Stanley Kubrick

In any case, once you're dealing on a nonverbal level, ambiguity is unavoidable. But it's the ambiguity of all art, of a fine piece of music or a painting - you don't need written instructions by the composer or painter accompanying such works to 'explain' them. "Explaining" them contributes nothing but a superficial 'cultural' value which has no value except for critics and teachers who have to earn a living. — Stanley Kubrick

Nonverbal Quotes By Daniel J. Siegel

At the most basic level, therefore, secure attachments in both childhood and adulthood are established by two individual's sharing a nonverbal focus on the energy flow (emotional states) and a verbal focus on the information-processing aspects (representational processes of memory and narrative) of mental life. The matter of the mind matters for secure attachments. — Daniel J. Siegel

Nonverbal Quotes By Molly Harper

I opened my mouth, but I just couldn't find the words to express the mishmash of frustration and plain old mad I had spinning through my head. I moved my lips. I narrowed my eyes. I made angry hand gestures. But no words came out. I started to pace, gnawing my fingernails to the quick. Fortunately, they grew back almost instantly, which meant I had an endless supply.
Andrea stopped me in my tracks by grabbing my shoulders. OK, sweetheart, I'm all for nonverbal forms of communication, but you're starting to look like an extremely pissed-off mime. Use your words. — Molly Harper

Nonverbal Quotes By K.A. Applegate

The knights nodded with exaggerated casualness, showing respect for the wizard but not fear. Or so they thought. The fear came in the way they parted for the old man, took a half step back without really thinking about it.
That's one of the things you learn to do when you study acting. You watch the nonverbal cues. That's what gives a performance depth. The knights were all like, "Hey, Merlin, what's up?" But get past the easy words and bluff tone and you saw faces drawn back, bodies turned at an angle to protect the vitals, an unconscious cringe. — K.A. Applegate

Nonverbal Quotes By William Landay

The leopard in the zoo wanders to the edge of his pen and, through the bars or across an unjumpable moat, he stares at you with contempt for your inferiority, for needing that barrier between you. There is a shared understanding in that moment, nonverbal but no less real: the leopard is predator and you are prey, and it is only the barrier that permits us humans to feel superior and secure. That feeling, standing at the leopard's cage, is edged with shame, at the animal's superior strength, at his hauteur, his low estimation of you. — William Landay

Nonverbal Quotes By Lindsey Rietzsch

The things you say, the things you don't say, the things you do, or the things you don't do are always sending a loud message to those around you. What kind of a message are you sending? Is it a true reflection of who you are? — Lindsey Rietzsch

Nonverbal Quotes By Gay Hendricks

If you want to create vital, long-lasting love, you must become a master of verbal & nonverbal appreciation — Gay Hendricks

Nonverbal Quotes By Asa Don Brown

Children are sponges, soaking up every verbal and nonverbal interaction. — Asa Don Brown

Nonverbal Quotes By Leonard Mlodinow

Nonverbal communication forms a social language that is in many ways richer and more fundamental than our words. — Leonard Mlodinow

Nonverbal Quotes By David Wong

Tyler reacted to this for some reason, looking at John with a "when are people gonna learn" look, and then he spat on the ground. Tobacco spitting is a kind of nonverbal communication in many parts of the Midwest. He must have spilled his coffee a lot as a kid because he had one of those big spill-proof mugs, the kind that flare way out at the bottom. It looked like he was speaking into a megaphone every time he took a drink. I — David Wong

Nonverbal Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Few realize how loud their expressions really are. Be kind with what you wordlessly say. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Nonverbal Quotes By Jeffrey Kluger

Habitual texters may not only cheat their existing relationships, they can also limit their ability to form future ones since they don't get to practice the art of interpreting nonverbal visual cues. — Jeffrey Kluger

Nonverbal Quotes By Mike Judge

Who is Mike Judge? Let me think. The only way I could possibly answer that question would be in a nonverbal fashion. I think I could do an interpretive dance that would answer that question for you. — Mike Judge

Nonverbal Quotes By Jane Goodall

The chimpanzees taught me a lot about nonverbal communication. The big difference between them and us is that they don't have spoken language. Everything else is almost the same: Kissing, embracing, swaggering, shaking the fist. — Jane Goodall

Nonverbal Quotes By Darrel Ray

In the Christian view, sex was an unclean act. Ask Christians, "Did Jesus have sex?" and watch their nonverbal response. Or ask, "Did Peter enjoy sex with his wife?" or "Did Mary and Martha, 'whom Jesus loved,' ever enjoy a good orgasm?" Such questions do not compute in the Christian mind. The Christian founders are seen as asexual. — Darrel Ray

Nonverbal Quotes By Elizabeth Wurtzel

It's nonverbal: I need love. I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on. And I know it's around me somewhere, but I just can't feel it. — Elizabeth Wurtzel

Nonverbal Quotes By Adam S. McHugh

When introverts are in conflict with each other ... it may require a map in order to follow all the silences, nonverbal cues and passive-aggressive behaviors! — Adam S. McHugh

Nonverbal Quotes By Harriet Lerner

Request an apology when you believe you deserve one, but don't get in a tug of war about it. Instead, be a role model and tender a genuine apology yourself when an apology is due. Your willingness to apologize can be contagious and models maturity for your partner. Also, your non-apologizing partner may use a nonverbal way to reconnect after a fight, defuse the tension, or show you he's in a new place and wants to repair a disconnection. Accept the olive branch however it's offered. — Harriet Lerner

Nonverbal Quotes By Asa Don Brown

Reading is a source of liberation. Children who are taught to read early on, are commonly taught to communicate in other significant verbal and nonverbal ways. — Asa Don Brown

Nonverbal Quotes By John Stoker

Authority - when abused through micromanagement, intimidation, or verbal or nonverbal threats - makes people shut down & productivity ceases. — John Stoker

Nonverbal Quotes By Leonard Mlodinow

We routinely participate in elaborate nonverbal exchanges even when we are not consciously aware of doing so. — Leonard Mlodinow
