The TV series, which I have chosen, and believe to be one of the best examples of interpersonal communication behavior, is the American television comedy series called The Office. This outrageously hilarious comedy TV series portrays the everyday lives of office employees located in Scranton, Pennsylvania, a branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company and is filmed in a documentary type style by a team of film crew members.

To start off, the first concept that can be evidently seen in one of the episodes of this TV series is the concept of emotional messages, specifically, the emotional expression of sadness, which is exemplified by the character Jim Halpert as his boss, Michael Scott, is about to leave the company in the episode titled “Goodbye, Michael.” In this episode, the verbal expression of emotion known as sadness is shown by Jim Halpert as well as Michael Scott as Jim explains what a wonderful boss Michael Scott truly was to him.

I decided to share about one of my favorite TV shows, The Office. I enjoy this show because there are so many different characters with unique personalities. Each character interacts with one another in their own personal ways. In this show, there is no character that is the same. Certain ones give a representation of how to communicate appropriately and others show an inappropriate way to communicate. The three characters that I have chosen to look closely at are, Michael, Dwight, and Jim. Michael is the boss of the paper company department, Dwight and Jim are sales representatives. Michael and Dwight are not very good at appropriately communicating with one another or with others in the office. Jim is one of the “normal” ones on the show.

Nonverbal communication not only reveals hidden messages, but it also complements, substitutes, and exaggerates verbal communication.
