How to use "Tells" in context?
Tells are a form of communication that rely on body language and other nonverbal cues to send a message. They can be used when one person doesn't have the time or inclination to speak out loud.
Tells are often used as a way to keep a conversation flowing by communicating without having to use words. They can also be used to relay messages that might be too personal or confidential to speak out loud.
Some tells that are common in conversation include making eye contact, speaking in a clear and confident voice, and keeping a degree of distance between the sender and receiver.
