    It depends on how you are defining "signs." In communication, signs are often defined as unintentional communications, such as a blush is often a sign of embarrassment.

    We each have our own "code book," which leads us to interpret the words and actions of others. The more similar our background, the more our code books are alike. However, no two code books are identical, so errors are likely to occur.

    Your examples will reflect your own "code book."

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
