Watching the film Dunkirk last year, I suddenly realised that if I inhabited this cinematic world for real I would spend the entire time saying 'What was that, mate? I didn't quite catch it. You're mumbling.' (I would also keep walking into rooms and switching the big light on, but that's another matter.) It struck me that modern attempts at 'realism' don't feel very 'real' at all, and the idea for this month's special feature(p.28) was born. I hope you'll agree it's a fascinating collection of pieces from the experts on how people really communicate, in a variety of ways.

Of course, a vital way that you modern folk communicate is via the electric interweb and all the social medias. We've doubled the amount of users of thepsychologist. in the last two years (compared with the previous two). There's more exclusive content than ever. 82,000+ follow us onTwitter @psychmag for updates. You're busy, but please try to find time to look: and communicate back this way!
