Touch is the first sense we acquire and the secret weapon in many a successful relationship. Here's how to regain fluency in your first language.
You're in a (0) LiU 02_01 The power of touch.JPG subway car on a Tuesday morning, or perhaps on a city bus. Still-sleepy commuters, lulled by vibrations, remain hushed, yet silently broadcast their thoughts. A toddler in his stroller looks warily at his (1)  passengers, brows stitched with concern. He turns to Mom for reassurance, reaching out a small hand. She quietly takes it, squeezes, and releases. He relaxes, smiles, turns away – then back to Mom. She takes his hand again: squeeze and release.
A twenty-something in a skirt and blazer sits (2) , a leather-bound portfolio on her lap. She repeatedly (3)  a few blonde wisps off her face, then touches her neck, her subconscious movements both revealing and relieving her (4)  about her 9 a.m. interview. A couple propped against a pole (5)  messages of affection; she rubs his arms with her hands, he nuzzles his face in her hair. A middle-aged woman, squished into a corner, assuredly bumps the young man (6)  her with some elbow and hip. The message is clear; he instantly adjusts to make room.

In a series of studies, Hertenstein had volunteers attempt to communicate a list of emotions to a blindfolded stranger (11)  through touch. Many participants were apprehensive about the experiment. "This is a touchphobic society," he says. "We're not used to touching strangers, or even our friends, necessarily."
