Signaled Agreement With A Movement Of The Head

When a person shakes the finger or shakes the head, he shakes it several times, usually to show that they are angry nodding can also be used as a form of non-verbal welcome or recognition of the presence of another; In this context, it is essentially a particularly gentle form of flexion, with just enough movement to show a certain degree of respect without additional formality. This includes the traditional headbly down or the headbly up (which is more informal and is usually used among friends or subordinates). To increase the formality, the nodding down can also be accompanied by an appropriate oral welcome. In Greece, the simple head-down sign, which indicates « yes », is often combined with the simultaneous closing of the eyes. .
