    Another crucial thing that is part of it (or should be) for clear
    communication, is intentionality: what actually is what you are
    trying to get across - or what is that they are really trying to
    say to you?

    The more congruity between the verbal and non-verbal, and
    the clear and more authentic the intention, the clearer the   
    communication will be. The navigation menus here direct you
    to some articles on various aspects of the intricate aspects, and
    complexities of our day to day communication activities. Enjoy         
    your exploration.
Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear
it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or
wrong, how  we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we
behave with loved  ones, and a million other things." All of
which contribute to forming and shaping our reality - that which
we call "
Normal" for us. Our "reality" has been socially engineered.

While behaviour, and rules of behaviour are two of the major
aspects of "culture", Communication is its hallmark.

One of the most important and critical activities we engage in,
a lot of it being words, but there are other
simultaneous more "basic" verbally communicative things going
on.  These "things" are body language and facial expressions:
they "work" interdependently, either augmenting the intended
"message" or contradicting it. In some cases, it may sabotage
the message completely because one or the other (or both) of
the non-verbal "channels" are  not in sync with the words.
