This is why when communicating with someone we spend most of the time looking at the person’s face. This assures the person that we’re addressing them and them only, not anyone else.
According to psychology studies, human beings are capable of making more than 10,000 different facial expressions in communication. No wonder most non-verbal communication happens via the facial expressions!
Imagine, if there were no facial expressions, how our day-to-day interactions would be like. There would be no way of knowing how a person feels about what’s going on except body gestures and verbal communication.
