Principles of nonverbal communication
Helping manage impressions
Examples of this would be to smile to make yourself look polite, or to stand firm and make eye contact to be believed.
This means imagining how others see you, or doing things so that others see you in a certain way.
Using facial expressions such as a smile for happy and a frown for sad.
Influence and deceive
Deceiving someone with a smile when you are actually angry is a form of decisevness. Influence can be more than just what a person says, it can be through facial expressions as well.
In a strutted conversation people will make cues that they are ready to speak when the other person is done talking.
Interaction with verbal messages

Making it painfully obvious you would like to speak or do something by shaking your hand up and down, or sighing.

Smiling when someone is telling a story or shaking your head in disaproval.
Raising your voice to show that you are mad, or putting emphasis on a certain word to convey the mood you are in.
Doing the OK sign with your fingers instead of actually saying OK.
