>what about forms of communications outside the written/verbal spectrum?
OPs question did assume the mode of communication was language, and thus the question focused on which form of language was more accurate. On that assumption all non- verbal cues are listed (in ops pic) as potential distractions. But you're right that things like art and music, being non-verbal, fall entirely outside the range of his question. I suppose if we were to add a third c)Non-verbal
as an option, then the question would be how does non-verbal communication rate in terms if accuracy? I think that would be an unfair question. Art is communication, but it's best for all the fuzzy stuff(read: emotions) we can't use words for. How well can a lecture convey fear?
Or hope? Not nearly as well as a painting or a symphony. And so before we could ask: what is more accurate?
We would, again, first need to know what was it that was being communicated?
. Beyond that is the additional question of Does the person I'm communicating with speak my language?
Above in this thread there are good points made that even speakers of the same language may not speak the same language. In situations where a language barrier exists, non-verbal is easily the most accurate form of communication. And of course this third non-verbal category isn't limited to formal 'art'. You can say "turn left" in any number of ways, but none would be as accurate as simply pointing.
