Health Chapter 4 Notes: Communication and Relationships
The Communication Process
A variety of styles make up the communication process, including verbal, nonverbal, and meta messages.
Nonverbal messages are communicated primarily by body language and facial expressions.
A meta message has an underlying meaning or an implicit message, and may be used in advertising to encourage product interest at an almost subliminal level.
Communication Goals
In communication, your primary goal should be to convey your thoughts and ideas clearly and accurately, and to comprehend the thoughts and ideas articulated to you by others.
Learning to communicate is a lifelong process that improves with practice.
Good communication should not be about winning, losing, competing, or having the last word.
A communication style that involves both the speaker and the listener creates a reciprocity that is meaningful for both individuals.
Communication: The exchange of thoughts, opinions, or information in speech, writing, or signs.
Gender and Communication Styles
Gender and role models influence how our personal communication style develops.
Most people identify with same gender role models and emulate same gender communication patterns.
The way we speak say much about us and can identify regional, ethnic, cultural differences, and even level of education.
Men are often competitive in their communication patterns, especially with other men.
Women are often more affiliative in their communication patterns, tending not to initiate conflict, and usually trying not to hurt the feelings of others.
Women may take statements said in anger more personally then men.
Affiliative: A more submissive communication style that seeks to minimize conflict.
Effective Communication
In modern American life, we organize our lives on our personal digital assistants, and send and receive e-mail on our computers.
The ability to clearly state thoughts and hear exactly what someone else is saying
