Dataset Information

Additional Information

A total of 73 customers, aged between 24 and 81 years old, were surveyed. Of the customers surveyed, 38 were returning customers, and 35 were new cus-tomers. The variables chosen are the essential ones that make up the non-verbal communication system. In addition to being the most feasible to evaluate in clients. The non-verbal system is made up of subsystems such as kinesic, paralanguage, proxemic, chronic, and others. In the design of the questionnaire, the indicators that make up these subsystems were taken into account to be explored as part of the client's communication preferences, as well as being feasible to evaluate in clients. The 22 variables analyzed were considered feasible to evaluate by the hotel's clientele.
