Video: Busting the Mehrabian Myth

The "7% 38% 55%" rule often gets misrepresented by "communication experts" who didn't do their homework. This short video puts a refreshing view on the work of Albert Mehrabian.

Hint: Yes Mehrabian did report those numbers - but he never said that they represent the message or communication. He was measuring likeability.

Enjoy the video.

Silent Messages - the book in which Mehrabian published his famous numbers.
