Research has shown that 55% of communication is a direct result of body language or human physiology. This encompasses a diverse set of human expression factors. These being facial expressions, the gestures, the quality and type of movement of the person who is doing the communicating. Thus body language is far more relevant than actual words which only account for 45% of communication, 38% being made up of the tone of the voice.
Body language and the tonal modulations of your voice infer the basis of your communication. So, to be an effective communicator, you must be flexible enough to modify a range of body language and physiological elements. Some of these are your breathing pattern, posture, gestures, hand movements, accentuation's, attention, etc. We must use our bodies in hundreds of different ways.
