Proxemics

Don’t Stand So Close To Me

Proxemics: Proxemics is the study of how humans perceive the proximity of others.
Developed by Edward T. Hall, this field of study looks at personal space issues and non-verbal language across cultures.  According to Hall, human perceptions of space are ultimately formed and influenced by culture and expectations about personal space vary widely among cultures.
