When we want to communicate with other people, we use verbal language, resulting in a dialogue which we prodece in a conscious and controlled fashion. But we are mistaken if we believe that this is the only form of communication occurring al any given moment.

Various nuances impact on our dialogues which provide valuable information to our interlocutor for understanding the words we say and what we are saying unconsciously. What we are talking about here are gestures, postures, intonation, etc, or in other words, what is known as non-verbal language or body language. The key here es that this accompanies verbal language, but is not normally under the speaker´s control, with the implication being that as something unconscious and uncontrolled, it expresses reality.

We can see this in practice when we listen to another person. We must observe the degree of coherence and congruence between these two forms of communication, in order to know the degree of truthfulness. 

Observe it.
