I can see the non-verbal communication in action in many different areas of society. Control feels like a shared component to all of them whether it is needed desired or demanded. Non-verbal feels to be an oppressive and restrictive means to communicate. To communicate is not equivalent to sharing. Non-verbal does not imply being sensitive as in caring rather than controlling. I appreciate the term monolog because it truly identifies the relationship of those communicating non-verbally each responding to an internalized set of rules rather than a consensus and even better acknowledgment and validation. Hands on hips, head set squarely between shoulders and a slight smile on my face.
