Body language speaks much louder than words! The verbal portion of a message is responsible for only 7% of what people remember…body language accounts for 55% of what people retain. Body language is particularly important in the collectivist culture of Thailand, where it communicates the social order & respect.
I found a cute school project that some Thai students produced (unfortunately they didn’t post enough information to give any more credit than this…the longer original is @ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrkMuD_5mh0).
My edited version illustrates some important gestures, facial expressions, & postures for maintaining proper relationships in Thai culture—both what to do & what to not do.
Effective intercultural communication starts with understanding that others see the world differently than we do.
