Haptics- Non verbal communication

  1. 1. NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION HAPTICS SUBMITTED BY-AJEETESH
  2. 2. NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION Nonverbal communication is the process of communication through sending and receiving wordless (mostly visual) cues between people. It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as body language (kinesics), but nonverbal communication encompasses much more, such as use of voice (paralanguage), touch (haptics), distance (proxemics), and physical environments/appearance.
  3. 3. Haptics  Haptic communication is a form of nonverbal communication and the way by which people and animals communicate via touching.Touch is the most effective means to communicate feelings and emotions.  The withholding of touch may communicate a variety of negative feelings.
  4. 4. Touch in Animals  Gentling – stroking and touching of newborn animals.  Licking – to clean the offspring. Also plays in important role in stimulating the physiological functions of newborn animals and therefore contributes to their survival.

  6. 6. Touch in Humans  Tactile communication in the early stages of life may establish the foundation of all other forms of communication that humans later develop.  As one grows older, the frequency of touch decreases.  Touch sometimes help better than verbal communication.
  7. 7. Categories of Touch  Friendship-Warmth Touch – lets another person know we care for, value, and have an interest in her or him. Probably the most difficult to interpret, both for the receiver of the touch and the outsider.  Boys distance themselves from their parents at an earlier age than girls. There is more touching with the same sex parent than with cross-sex parents.
  8. 8. Examples…
  9. 9. Categories of Touch  Professional-Functional Touch – Managers should know the effectiveness of using touch while communicating to subordinates, but need to be cautious and understand how touch can be misunderstood. A hand on the shoulder for one person may mean a supportive gesture, while it could mean a sexual advance to another person  A handshake or a pat on the back.
  10. 10. Examples…
  11. 11. Categories of Touch  Social-Polite Touch – serves to communicate a limited form of interpersonal involvement. We touch another person as more than a mere object.  Blessing some one or meeting in a party or just a casual meeting.
  12. 12. Examples…
  13. 13. Categories of Touch  Love-Intimacy Touch – may include caressing the cheek, holding another person around the waist, hugging, embracing, kissing, and many other gestures that signal a particularly close and involved association between individuals.  Public touch can serve as a ‘tie sign’ that shows others that your partner is “taken”.  Touching between married couples may help maintain good health.
  14. 14. Examples…
  15. 15. Categories of Touch  Sexual-Arousal Touch – often equated with intimate touch. Is the most intense form of touch. It also may be the most communicative.  Hugging- The embrace is the most basic way of telling someone that you love them and possibly need them too.  Kissing- Moving in concert by turning heads to allow for the lips to touch is the final part of the fourth stage of courtship, the kiss.
