Solution:
On observing individuals communicating with each other, I observed the following non-verbal signals:

     Facial expression like smile, frown etc. which express a variety of emotions.
     Gestures which are the signs that are used in conveying explicit meanings like shrugging the
        shoulders to say “I don’t know”
     Body language and posture which depicts the likeness between the sender and the receiver. It
        clearly demonstrates how much the receiver likes the message and views of the sender.
     Personal space which communicates the amount of distance that both the party expect to
        maintain between them.
     Touch communicates the level of intimacy of the sender and the receiver.
     Intonations like tone of the voice, pitch of the voice, the loudness which conveys arrogance,
        fear, shyness etc.
     Eye contact which explains the receiver’s focus on the sender.
     Appearance, with regard to clothes and accessories, conveys information about the social
        status, context and the individuality of the communicating person.

On undergoing this exercise, I became aware that these non-verbal signals are very vital part of the
communication and can both complement and complicate the verbal communication. I understood
that I should be cautious in sending non-verbal signals and also pay close attention to the signals sent
by the person communicating with me. I should maintain good eye contact with the sender to
emphasize that I have total focus on what is being conveyed. Also, I should concentrate on the
signals that could be misleading my message to the receiver.
