Listening, Personal Space And Body Language

Published on 7/28/2017

body language is a powerful tool


Through Listening, personal space and body language, we communicate more than words alone can.


If you want to find the truth

The above quote is by Bhavesh Chhatbar

When you truly listen, you are  listening not just with your eyes and ears, but your mind and body.  With your eyes, observing the body language of the person speaking to you, hearing the tone and inflection in their voice, you get a sense of who that person is and then you can answer appropriately, not with some off handed remark which is off putting.  You will also be able to tell by their tone if what they are saying is what they really mean. In other words you are fully present with no distractions.

Personally, I have what I like to call a default listening mode. If I am going to talk to you I like to be in your presence because I use my eyes while listening to your tone or as is suggested, the inflection in your voice. I can pick that up over the phone too because I close my eyes and really lean into listening. But, depending on the relationship my preference is physical presence.

have you ever had the experience of people saying one thing but conveying by their tonality the shiftiness of their body and the look, or lack thereof, that they mean something entirely different?


I once had an experience that was a bit of an awakening, years ago. A person I knew in authority posed a question to me. I thought it was important enough to give specifics as briefly as I could. So, I began to answer and within minutes I realized that the person was not listening although the stance suggested he was. I immediately stopped talking waited a few seconds and then moved away. The person had lost interest in the answer to his question almost immediately he posed it. It came as a shock to my system because it was quite unexpected, but I learnt a valuable lesson that day.

Develop the habit of going deeper and practicing the art of listening. It will serve you well in your personal relationships, your business, with family and friends.

"If the conversation is worth having, it is worth listening"

Communication is more than words. It is not words just going in one ear and out the other. It implies awareness and respect for the other person's personal space.

You may or may not have noticed communication between two persons where one keeps stepping back each time the other steps closer. Some people's force field or aura is so strong that you are not allowed to invade, and if you do there are different reactions; that of anger, annoyance or anxiety.

In fact it is quite funny to observe sometimes. It is like a dance person moves forward the other steps back. The person moving forward is probably quite unaware or just insensitive to the other's personal space. In other cases people have what they refer to as the meter rule, the distance they keep in preventing their space from being invaded.

The art of listening is linked to personal space and body language. What say you?
