While traveling to New Orleans and Philadelphia, I started noticing non-verbal communication examples. It all started from the chair with the rope, which I saw at a former plantation in the countryside of Louisiana. It made me wonder: what are the benefits of non-verbal communication, if any? Is it calming? Is it less intimidating? Does it make our lives easier? I feel like non-verbal communication, if effective, is like good UX design: we don't notice it. So I guess I'm just trying to give a shoutout to this medium of communication that I think is under-appreciated.
