  • 1. Different Non-verbal Communication Between Men and Women
  • 2. Facial Expressions
    Women tend to use facial expressions more in order to express their feelings and intentions.
    The messages that women give out tend to be more subtle and sophisticated than the messages that most men give out.
    Women are more “experienced” in using their facial expressions.
  • 3. Eye Contact
    Men will look into the eyes of the person they are talking to.

  • 4. Men and Listening
    Many men are misjudged on their no-verbal behaviors when it comes to communication between women.
    If they don’t make a “listening noise” or grunt then they are seen as not paying attention.
    Most men who don't make this noise may in fact be listening very intently to the conversation.
  • 5. Women and Listening

    • 6. Many women nod and make listening noises such as “Yeah”, “Ah” or “Oh really?” during conversations and are assumed that they pay attention more.
    • 7. This kind of feedback is more of a way to show interest in the conversation whether they truly mean it or not.
  • Gestures and Mannerisms
    Women are more likely to use more “warm” gestures and mannerisms than men do.
    Use fewer and less obvious gestures
    Hugging, lowering of the eyes in aggressive behaviors.
    Men tend to use obvious gestures such as talking with their hands than using facial expressions.
  • 8. Touching
    Some men take touching as a sign of sexual intentions and are less likely to touch other men during a conversation.
    Women are more likely to touch other women because touching is mostly used as a form of friendship or sympathy.
  • 9. Body Proximity
    • Men sometimes tend to be more uncomfortable with close proximity
    • 10. Prefer more face-to-face conversations

  • What Do We Need to Know?
    Because interpreting body language requires a great deal of observation try getting to know the other person and their characteristics.

    Be respectful and don’t judge either gender based on their body language issues.
