People Meeting & Greeting

Greeting is the social act of intentionally making oneself known to another and can suggest relationship dynamics and social status depending on the type of greeting used. They oftentimes precede a conversation, but can vary from a quick hand gesture or verbal acknowledgement in passing, such as on a hiking trail, to a more formal series of physical gestures that may include bowing or kissing. Common across every known human culture, the geographical region and social status’ of those greeting each other, along with other factors such as gender, familiarity, and so on will determine the appropriate form and technique of the greeting.
