You in speaking

You in speaking

It is widely held that when we speak 7% of the meaning is conveyed by the actual words, 38% of the meaning by the tone used, 55% of the meaning is conveyed by our body language.

The result of that finding points out some interesting issues such as the importance of body language when speaking. For unacquainted persons these findings may hold true but for close associates, there is an important factor that determines meaning during communication: who we are. If we say the same words, use similar tone, show the same body language, the meaning of the words will depend on our individual character. While the one’s words may give encouragement and peace of mind, the other’s (same) words may bring despair and alarm.
