Use of Gestures in Daily Life
According to the findings, it can, therefore, be said that the most obvious gesture that I witnessed is laughing which is an affect display of emotion motivated by fun. Laugh conveyed fun and happiness and familiarity with the person we are with which is why we laugh a lot when we are together. I can no longer count the times that my friends laugh since everybody was telling silly stories and making fun of each other.The second gesture I saw was a cross arm coming one of my female friends that we were making fun of. Again, this is an effective display of emotion but this time, it was motivated by disgust and being defensive because my friends were making fun of her. I only noticed this once followed by with her hands akimbo when she was about to assert her point. I only saw this once because my friends do not want to antagonize her further.I noticed that for young people like us, our adaptors come often in resting our feet on an elevated and then resting our back on something solid. It is like a vacation mode of gesture but we like it a lot because it makes us relax while talking about anything under the sun. I see this often countless times.Some may find it rude the way that we express regulators that would terminate or change conversation which is through yawning. We are essentially conveying to the speaker which is one of our friends that the topic he or she is talking about is boring that makes us sleepy. But our friends only do it with each other because we are already comfortable with each other. But also I noticed that when we talk about serious things such as our lessons, my friends often sat either beside or across from each other with their chin resting on their palm as if they were problematic. This is one of their regulators to indicate that they are absorbed in the topic that is being discussed.
