Discussion Week 2 Picture

By: Shelby Schroeder

My picture is of a group of girls in a dorm working together to create door stops for their doors.  These girls are all talking and communicating about their different ideas to make their own door stops unique.  However they also communicate simply by working together.  Sometimes when people work together they can be completely silent but are communicating towards the same goal.  It shows that people don’t necessarily need to speak to bond or communicate.  Verbally they are all talking, but non verbally they are  showing each other that they are comfortable with each other with their body language.  For me personally, you can tell when a group really gets along with each other by their body language.  A group of people who don’t know each other might stand far apart from each other, but friends, like these girls in the dorms are more willing to interact with one another.  Overall I think this picture shows that interacting through and activity is a good way to establish a group, rather than just talking to people.

  1. I really liked your example for this week. My favorite part was when you said that you can still be bonding and communicating even when you are silent. I liked it because its so true. When people think of communicating they like of talking, verbally having a conversation. That is not how it always has to be. Working towards the same goal can be communication in itself.

  2. Shelby,
    I like how you talk about the influence of nonverbal communication. Even though the girls may not be talking directly, they can still work together and get a task done through nonverbal skills. It is a good picture relating the influence of nonverbal communication. I also like how you mention body language and how it may portray friendships or acquaintances. Good Job!

  3. Shelby,
    I really like your explanation because I totally agree that when people work in groups they can be completely silent but also work well together and get things done without necessarily communicating face to face.
