Overview

"The communications we transmit through touch constitute the most powerful means of establishing human relationships, the foundations of experience."—Ashley Montagu

Touch dominant people are those for whom the sense of touch is the sense that works the best—the one that helps them the most. Unfortunately, ours is a "Don't touch!" and "Keep your hands to yourself!" culture, in which people frequently react negatively to touch, and even to the language of touch. For touch dominant people this tends to mean a life filled with confusing interactions and mystifying rejections.

Now help is at hand from bestselling communications expert Suzette Haden Elgin. Dr. Elgin explains how to identify touch dominance in yourself and others. Using real-life scenarios dealing with a wide variety of typical problems—at home, in school, in the office—Elgin offers advice and easy-to-use techniques for improving communication, including specific problems related to intimate relationships.
