Confusion is of two kinds: verbal and non-verbal. Both can not be overlooked: it is difficult to hide the signs of confusion. If it is of a verbal nature, i.e. There is a failure in communication with the help of speech, then it is difficult or even there is no contact between the interlocutors. The one who is confused will be confused, painfully searching for words, demonstrating the absence of a full or partial orientation in time. This state can last from several hours to several days.
Nonverbal signs of confusion
Communication occurs not only with the help of speech, but also with the participation of information that the human body gives. Are there nonverbal signs of confusion, prompt facial expressions, gestures and gait. Complement the movement, called "tactile": hand shake, friendly pat on the shoulder or back, touch and other direct contacts.
Much will tell the look - its direction and duration. In addition, nonverbal signs are visible even in exactly where: how the person is at the table, the distance, on what exactly he is oriented. Several previously unacceptable postures or movements, even without a verbal contact, can characterize that a person is at a loss.
Panic and spiritual confusion
These terms do not require decoding: their significance has been known for a long time. The key word for "panic confusion" is the word "panic". If we take a literal translation from the Greek "panikon" - "an unconscious horror, it becomes clear that we are talking about a psychological mood, more precisely - a state that provoked external circumstances. They are filled with fear, which covers a huge number of people. Above this fear is the uncontrollability of a dangerous situation, the inability to control it. A typical example is a flood or a "suddenly awakened" volcano.
Mental confusion on its scale is inferior to panic: it is inherent in a particular individual. But to get out of the rut, for a long time and with, at times, tragic consequences, spiritual confusion can. She is able to make a helpless person at the most crucial moment.
