Much of the research on nonverbal behavior in social interaction has been analyzed in terms of intimacy exchange. This emphasis is largely the result of the direction provided by Argyle and Dean (1965) in their intimacy-equilibrium model. Because the intimacy-equilibrium model has been discussed in Chapter 2, it is unnecessary to review its substance. It is appropriate, however, to consider the construct of intimacy more closely and examine its place in the present functional analysis of nonverbal behavior.
