I watched in passing a scene from an afternoon series on television wherein a senior actress was talking to somebody over the phone; she nodded her head in approval of what was said by the caller. This is what we do at times: we nod our head to show approval or agreement, or affirmation to the person we talk over the phone, with the accompanying word YES! Or we shake our head when we say NO! It is as if the caller can see us nodding or shaking our head. I am sure many of us even give hand gestures when we are stressing a point to somebody we communicate over the phone. Although our speaking voice can demonstrate our emotions like anger, embarrassment, fright, and sweetness, I think all these can be manifested with our body movements, and the caller cannot even see us. Do you do this too when you are conversing with somebody on the phone?

It is possible, Although I have not really noticed it when talking on the phone myself.. I have noticed it in other people. I am often saying what the heck are they doing... ? only to discover that lone person walking down the street looking crazy is just someone on bluetooth talking and gesturing wildly. lol
haha! all the more crazy for someone who uses the bluetooth. talking loudly and gesturing will make a person look lunatic. for me, i usually talk loud because the truth is i cannot hear the voice of the person at the other end of the line. i even shout. and my voice is not good to hear. hahaha.
