While the previous lectures explored the biological evolution of nonverbal communication, which are hard-wired into most living creatures, this lecture delves into the fascinating impact culture has had on nonverbal communication. Examine the nonverbal communication differences that are driven by the integration of biology and culture, including the unwritten display rules that every culture adopts. You’ll learn about the concepts of mono- and polychronic time cultures, of high and low context cultures, and individualist versus collectivist cultures. Lastly, you’ll learn things not to do in certain cultures, even if they are perfectly acceptable where you come from.
