McFall in 1982 and Spence in 1995 identified a range of verbal and non- verbal responses that influence the perception and response of other people during social interactions. Spence (2003)1 states that: ‘it is important that individuals are able to adjust the quantity and quality of non verbal responses such as eye contact, facial expression, posture … according to the demands of different social situations’.1
