Behaviour, context, schemas it is through your behaviour through which people know who you are and understand you. Verbal behaviour: talking and use of language. Nonverbal behaviour: emblems, power of behavioural input ( thin slices") Subtle behaviours are that we do not do intentionally give an insight to better understanding us. Gestures that have well understood meaning within a culture, they serve the purpose of words. Use of emblems and their meanings are very culturally bound ie thumps-up, okay/good, peace signs. An approach within social psychology focused on the attributional power of brief exposure to others. Groups that we belong to, but we do not know that other belong to them unless we are told. Show picture of face and say if the person is gay" or not gay". Thin slices pick up on intuitive signs to help us perceive certain attributes and traits. We use these cues mediate the understanding of future ses related behaviour.
