One of the most important concepts of humanity is Interpersonal communication. Our communication skills vary from one person to the next. There are many ways that we communicate in society with one another. Communication consists of verbal or nonverbal communication. Each individual has a unique style to communicate with society that it’s made up of diversity. Emotions are powerful feelings that may change the emotional well-being of a person. Emotions range from the feeling of joy, happiness, fear, sadness, anger, hate. Feelings will define the happy life journey of one person or the destruction of another.
Interpersonal Communication many times is a very difficult process due to the uniqueness of a person and the individualism we all poses. It involves verbal and non-verbal attempts to assist the other person to understand the argument or point that we are trying to communicate. Despite the strategies and paraphrasing and summarizing of information people will still have trouble in understanding our point of view or knowledge that we are trying to teach. Communication occurs on a daily basis in our lives. Many times we communicate our emotions without even thinking. All our daily activities require for us to communicate in one form or another. It is important to communicate in order to pass on information to people that we interact with.
Communication is any action, verbal and nonverbal, which is conveyed by a person and received and understood by at least one other person. These actions or behaviors can be ideas, feelings, values and attitudes. When the receiver perceives the message, a meaning is obtained from the message. A relationship is formed between people as they engage themselves in a communication process.
Our communication output is composed of verbal, vocal and visual signs or signals. Verbal signals are words or speech
