Nonverbal communication is one of the most powerful ways that we
communicate in our interpersonal relationships. Sometimes, however,
we may find ourselves unintentionally communicating something that
we do not mean to. This tends to happen quite often in
intercultural communication situations (when we are
communicating across different cultures).
Provide an example of a time when you nonverbally communicated
something other than what you meant. Or, use an example of when
someone else nonverbally communicated something to you that was
different than what they meant. What happened in this situation? Be
specific in your example and also discuss what you will do in the
future to avoid this.
