“Donald Sessions said, “Connection even for a brief moment produces the powerful enchantment of presence,” (Baumgardner, 2017). The connection an individual makes with one another is through communication; whether it is verbal or nonverbal. A review of current journals on the effects nonverbal communication has on religion, workplace interactions, peer friendships, and family relationships was conducted. During the review it was found nonverbal communication makes an impact on the type of individuals in another’s life whether it is consciously or unconsciously done. It was discovered individuals leave a lasting impression with their audience and they do so with the type of communication that they use and only seven percent of communication is what is verbally spoken. The type of nonverbal cues a person demonstrates tells his audience what he is really thinking or feeling without any verbally spoken words. This is done through smiling, nodding your head, eye contact and other forms of nonverbal cues.
