It has been widely argued that speech makes up only a fraction of Human Communication. The researcher Albert Mehrabian famously broke it down as follows:
- 55% of communication is through Body Language.
- 38% tone of voice.
- 7% relies on the meaning of the actual words themselves.
Regardless of the actual figures, it is known that much if the communication isn´t verbal. Facial expressions, hand gestures and Body Language are essential elements of how we communicate with one another.
