Francis Bacon was the first to consider body language a language
People have used body language for as long as we can remember
We use body language in our everyday life.
When you are mad you... roll your eyes, cross your arms
When you are sad you... act different and you body motion changes
When you are excited you... “jump off the walls” and your really fidgety
If you are tired you... act really drowsy and you move slowly
If you are embarrassed you... get really red, cover your face, sometimes even start crying!
If you are grossed out you... gag, cover your nose, and maybe throw up
Our ancestors communicated their needs with nonverbal communications such as gestors,noises, and facial or body reaction.
We evolved to react to threats and not even think. This is called the freeze, flight, fight response.
The freeze,flight,fight response also communicates to other people around us
Our brain can telegraph our intentions
Our needs, feelings, thoughts, emotions,and intentions are processed through the Limbic sytem
the Limbic system has us react to thinks and not think.
- The Limbic system is primarily responsible for the emotional part in our life
