Assignment 2: Nonverbal Communication and Culture
Using the Argosy University online library resources and the Internet, research the differences in culture and nonverbal communication. Every culture has a different understanding of what is appropriate nonverbal communication. In the United States, eye contact is a sign of attention or respect. In other cultures, eye contact is seen as rude and disrespectful. In this assignment, you will compare and contrast how a different culture you interact with in your daily life may interpret nonverbal communication differently than what is “culturally acceptable” in the United States. Make sure to take into account nonverbal gestures such as appearance, tone, space, eye contact, gestures, etc.
Based on your research and your personal experience, answer the following questions:
Explain why you picked the different culture that you are researching. How do you interact with that culture on a regular basis?
Compare and contrast the different cultures. Describe the similarities and differences in the way they both nonverbally communicate.
As the world becomes more global and cultures intersect, describe and analyze at least two ways you can use your findings in your daily life to help you be a more culturally competent communicator.
