Sobs and Growls Come Across In Any Language LiveScience – StumbleUpon

Social Sciences

Sobs and Growls Come Across In Any Language LiveScience – StumbleUpon. Interesting. Some communication always seems to be understood. I wrote a response to that in the comments.

Interesting that language is so rich isn’t it? We really communicate in many ways don’t we? ​http://chimac.net/2011/04/15/languages-​more-diverse-in-africa/

Seeing in the Dark. When people dismiss the idea of an unconscious affecting their behavior I will share this story. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be aware of things and not consciously aware of them?
