What’s Being Said About The World’s Largest Nonverbal Cue Catalog

“…you definitely did do a good job handling a difficult topic. I was also impressed by how up to date the research is.”

~ Dr. Aaron Sell

Dr. Aaron Sell is the Undergraduate Program Director (Mount Gravatt Campus), School of Criminology and Criminal Justice and Senior Lecturer, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Griffith University. His research focuses on anger and its evolution. One of his main tenants is that anger is adaptive and used as a bargaining tool in favor of the displayer. That is, by using the expression one is offered specific gains in light of those who observe it. Thus, anger is a tool of negotiation and used in order to provide an advantage to those who display it. Read more about his research here: http://www.cep.ucsb.edu/grads/Sell/

“Although it is difficult to provide a dictionary for nonverbal behaviors in the same way that we have done for words, Christopher Philip has done a wonderful job. Keeping in mind that gestures and facial expressions are context dependent and have multiple meanings, the user will still find the body language project nonverbal dictionary enormously helpful.”

~ Dr. Monica Moore

Dr. Monica Moore is a Professor at Webster University, Experimental Psychology and Clinical Respecialization. In her pioneering research Dr. Moore observed hundreds adult women in order to build a catalog of nonverbal sexual solicitation cues. Ten years later, she replicated this research in adolescent girls. In all, 52 sexual courtship behaviors were uncovered. Since her pioneering work in courtship, she has since moved into nonverbal fashion research. Her recent work focuses on investigating dress and identity and how people, women in particular, make decisions to construct a professional appearance in the workplace. For more information about her research please visit here: http://www.webster.edu/arts-and-sciences/faculty/moore.html

“The Nonverbal Body Language Dictionary is an outstanding resource for a wide ranging readership that presents the latest scientific evidence on nonverbal behavior in an engaging and entertaining way without losing sight of scientific scrutiny”.

~ Dr. Philip Furley

Dr. Philip Furley is a lecturer at the Institute for Human Cognition and Sports Game Research of the German Sport University Cologne. He is head of the Department “Cognition & Motivation.” He has published several papers dealing specifically with nonverbal communication in sports.
