Nonverbal Mimicry of Textual Paralanguage

This research explores nonverbal mimicry in response to textual paralanguage (TPL). Consumers mimic nonverbals after being exposed to messages containing TPL due to a heightened level of empathy evoked by exposure to TPL. We reveal a cross-modal visualization effect such that visual and tactile TPL facilitate auditory processing of messages.
