The Time AspectofVtrbaland Non-Verbal Communication
Cognitive behavior in interpersonal relations is connected with the conscious regulation of time parameters and the structure of the nonverbal component in communication. The level of dialogue performance and acceptance in communication between two partners is connected with equal frequency, duration, and synchronism of nonverbal components per time unit. Personal communicative competence includes time organization of the structure of nonverbal interaction and the ability to introduce kinesics into the dialogue in a consecutive and synchronous way.
The article is focused on the subjec-matter of activity mediation of interpersonal relationships. In contrast with functional-role and personal-emotional ones it is determined by orientation of people's activity towards "universal "I" and by logic of the "object". Levels-layers of intragroup relationships determined by the goal of collaborative activity, personal-business relationships, private emotional-personal relationships are described. The reasons for qualitative difference between activity-mediated relationships in a collectivity and activity-mediated relationships in a corporation as well as the potential of activity-mediated relationships to "warm up" private emotional relationships in a group are analyzed. Phenomena and peculiarities in life of a group revealed by the author of activity mediation theory are related to categories of transactional analysis and the other systems of counseling psychology. That gives the way to the special - personological - approach to the further research.
