Have you ever wanted to talk to someone but you didn’t know what to say?
Have you started to type but it didn’t look perfect so you deleted it several times?
Well…you aren’t alone! But now there is a trick to communicating, especially online and you may be familiar with it.
What is it? I hear you ask. Well its emoticons! 🙂 This is a new phenomenon where psychologists have found that our brains are starting to recognise emoticons as actual emotions! That means that a smiley face will produce a feeling of happiness in the person receiving the message. Not only that but the annoying LOL and OMG can be replaced by these simple emoticons to express effectively what you want to say and the person will subconsciously react to those as if you were right in front of them crazy, huh?
This means that you can use emoticons to say how much you like them without putting it into words and they are more likely to reciprocate than shut you down as it produces an emotional response.
I don’t know about you, but I have been trying it out and I have found that it works better than words! Especially when your talking to your girl friends!
Let me know in the comments how you get on and I will speak to you soon!!
