Males VS Females
As described in Weiten, Dunn & Hammer, the Characteristics of traditional masculine and feminine body language differ in many areas. Many people may look at the behavior of aggression as a traditional body language as masculine for a male. Man people may look at the traditional body language of a female as being nurturing and loving for the feminine role. It’s very obvious that men and women differ in physical appearance as well as body parts but there are still many differences (Janet Shibley Hyde, 2004).

Nonverbal signs can go from as simple as making eye contact with someone; which can mean many things like a person may like that person or a person is lying and it may differ in many other cultures. Nonverbal signs can also be as simple as one’s self touching which can mean many things also, but most may take it as something sexual.
