Components[ edit ] The expectancy violations theory examines three main components in interpersonal communication situations: Expectancies, communicator reward valence, and violation valence. Expectancies are primarily based upon social norms and specific characteristics and idiosyncrasies of the communicators. Rather, they have various expectations of how others should think and behave.
Information about the relationship and affect of these two skaters is communicated by their body postureeye gaze and physical contact. Some studies have demonstrated that people use their eyes to indicate interest. This includes frequently recognized actions of winking and movements of the eyebrows.
When an individual is interested, however, the pupils will dilate. According to Eckman, "Eye contact also called mutual gaze is another major channel of nonverbal communication. The duration of eye contact is its most meaningful aspect. The length of a gaze, the frequency of glances, patterns of fixation, pupil dilationand blink rate are all important cues in nonverbal communication.
Hogan states "when someone is being deceptive their eyes tend to blink a lot more. Eyes act as leading indicator of truth or deception,"  Both nonverbal and verbal cues are useful when detecting deception. It is typical for people who are detecting lies to rely consistently on verbal cues but this can hinder how well they detect deception.

Fairchild Research Information Center (aka Air University Library). Relatively little attention, however, has been given in language teaching to non-verbal communication as a complement to spoken language, though recent trends in neuro linguistic programming regarding mirroring and parallel body language have filtered into current research and practice.

Those who are lying and those who are telling the truth possess different forms of nonverbal and verbal cues and this is important to keep in mind.
In addition, it is important to note that understanding the cultural background of a person will influence how easily deception is detectable because nonverbal cues may differ depending on the culture.
In addition to eye contact these nonverbal cues can consist of physiological aspects including pulse rate as well as levels of perspiration.
Eye aversion is the avoidance of eye contact. Eye contact and facial expressions provide important social and emotional information. Overall, as Pease states, "Give the amount of eye contact that makes everyone feel comfortable.
Unless looking at others is a cultural no-no, lookers gain more credibility than non-lookers"  In concealing deceptionnonverbal communication makes it easier to lie without being revealed. This is the conclusion of a study where people watched made-up interviews of persons accused of having stolen a wallet.
People had access to either written transcript of the interviews, or audio tape recordings, or video recordings. The more clues that were available to those watching, the larger was the trend that interviewees who actually lied were judged to be truthful.
That is, people that are clever at lying can use tone of voice and facial expressions to give the impression that they are truthful. In an attempt to be more convincing, liars deliberately made more eye contact with interviewers than those that were telling the truth.Communication, Dance, Theatre and Film.

Chair: Rick Skarbez. The effect of realistic appearance of virtual characters in immersive environments - does the character’s personality play a role? Expectancy violations theory (EVT) is a theory of communication that analyzes how individuals respond to unanticipated violations of social norms and expectations.
The theory was proposed by Judee K. Burgoon in the late s and continued through the s and s as "nonverbal expectancy violations theory", based on Burgoon's research studying proxemics.
