Verbal and nonverbal communication styles in Mexico?
September 13, 2011 4:02PM
Verbal: People in Mexico use longer sentences because the culture values elegance and expressiveness to a higher degree.
Non Verbal: In Mexico, looking on directly in the eye can be considered aggressive between two men and flirtatious between men and women.
A firm handshake, Just as in the U.S., is considered a sign of assertiveness and of being a go-getter.
The Mexican people prefer closeness. They do not have the need for personal space that many Americans do.
