    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.
