When we talk about communication, a question arises. How long do we communicate in our lifetime? And the simple answer is that we communicate for our whole life starting from birth to as long as we live. But while communicating what’s important is the pitch and tone of voice, the speed and rhythm of the spoken words, and the pauses between those words because they express more than what is being communicated by words alone. In addition to that the gestures, posture, pose and expressions make the communication effective. Albert Mehrabian studied the importance of non-verbal communication and developed a communication model, in which he demonstrated that only 7% of what we communicate consists of the literal content of the message. The use of one’s voice, such as tone, intonation, and volume, take up 38% and as much as 55% of communication consists of body language.
