Worum geht's

Our body conveys more about us than our words, so body language is crucial for communication.

Imagine you’re trying to put your baby to bed and ease them to sleep with a lullaby. Now, imagine you’re delivering the lullaby with wide eyes, a furrowed brow and your shoulders hunched forward. No matter how soothing your voice may be, your body language will send an aggressive message that won’t be very useful in lulling your child to sleep.

This is because our bodies sometimes express more about us than our words. 

In a 2000 study at Harvard University, psychologist Nancy Etkoff ran trials that revealed just how important body language is for communication.

There were two groups of people in the study. The first group was made up of people who had aphasia, a condition where you have trouble understanding speech. The second group consisted of people with no speech comprehension difficulties.

Both groups were shown videos of people talking. Sometimes the people in the videos were telling a lie, sometimes they were telling the truth. The participants were asked to try to detect the lies from the truth.

Interestingly, the study showed that the group with aphasia was consistently better at detecting lies. Etkoff believes this is due to the fact that, since they have trouble understanding the words themselves, they pay more attention to body language than those who can understand the words. And it’s in this body language that the person’s true feelings and thoughts can be read.

As the study proved, body language is a key part of communication, since it reveals signs of our true feelings. This is worth paying attention to, especially when you’re delivering an important speech. For example, if you’re trying to deliver a motivational message, your intentions can be undercut if your body is tense and balled up since your audience will pick up on this inconsistency.

To be an effective communicator, your words should therefore match your body language. For this to happen, you need to truly believe in the message you’re delivering. In other words, you need to be authentic in your communication – and we’ll look at precisely how you can be more authentic and communicate more effectively in the blinks ahead.
