Survival of Communicator

Human race successfully survived not only because of intelligence and skills to adapt different environments but also effective interpersonal and social communication. In fact, larger brain evolved to develop better understanding about each other. Effective and harmonious social communication is not only about exchanging data with clarity and accuracy but also building mutual trust and confidence.

Nonverbal communication is universal.
In this modern age, we mostly communicate with help of words and numbers. However words share only few percents of personal insight if they are not judged nonverbally. Literal meaning of words can be acknowledged but motivations or intentions behind them may not be exactly understood if we don’t pay attention to pronunciation and facial expressions of person that utters them.

As like other creatures, we evolved to communicate primarily through bodily expressions because they are definite and apparent. A calm and cheerful person relaxing in a reclined chair gives away a pleasant and non-threatening message whereas out-crying infant expresses helplessness and an urge of immediate attention by others. Hence, no special training or experience is required for interpreting basic emotional expressions.

Communication is vast area and nonverbal domain makes it more broader than our imagination. What makes us as a superior race on this planet is our social and emotional reciprocation with each other which doesn't happen with words and numbers. What lies in our future is completely unpredictable but one this is certain that nature would support survival of better communicator.
