Challenge yourself, today, to employ at least five of these techniques in meetings, restaurants, and other public forums.

Quote:
In 1846, Dr. Andrew Comstock published A system of elocution, with special reference to gesture, to the treatment of stammering, and defective articulation, comprising numerous diagrams, and engraved figures, illustrative of the subject. The book was, he wrote, "designed for the use of Schools and Colleges, as well as for the instruction of private individuals who desire to improve themselves in the art of reading and speaking." The book includes not just instructions and exercises in articulation, pitch, force, and time, but also gestures to use when expressing certain emotions or feelings (largely sourced, Comstock explains, from Gilbert Austin's Chironomia, or a Treatise on Rhetorical Delivery). Normally, you'd use these while on stage, but feel free to employ them in your everyday life, too.



1. Reproach



2. Apprehension



3. Terror



4. Horror



5. Listening Fear



6. Admiration



7. Veneration



8. Deprecation



9. Appealing to Heaven



10. Shame in the Extreme



11. Resignation Mixed with Desperation



12. Grief Arising from Sudden and Afflicting Intelligence



13. Mild Resignation



14. Surprise



15. Melancholy



16. Anxiety



17. Distress, When Extreme



18. Self-sufficiency

There is only one way I prefer to express myself with gestures.
