Abstract


Key elements in non-verbal communication are movements, posture, gestures, distance, touch, verbal follow-up, intonation and voice power, appearance. The distance between the speakers is very important. Optimal is the distance at which both feel safe and comfortable enough. Communicating by touch is another modality of non-verbal communication, which in a sense occupies an intermediate position between physical and psychological attention. Last but not least, the non-verbal components of behavior are the tone and tone of voice, as they acquire particular meaning in the meaning-forming elements in the context of the speech.
