Print out the Communication Behaviors Chart located in the Learning Resources. Find
a time in the day when you will be interacting with more than two other
people and keep a log for 3 hours with the following information:
your verbal and nonverbal forms of communication, including your emotions
the people with whom you interact
where the communication takes place
the reaction or behavior of the person/people with whom you communicate
how the location of a communication event affects the behavior of the
person with whom you communicate. Why does context impact communication?
on how relationships affect communication. How does the nature of a
relationship influence how you communicate and how the receiver of the
message interprets your nonverbal cues, listens, and responds to you?
With these thoughts in mind:
2-paragraph summary of the interactions you logged, and your
explanation of how your emotional, verbal, and nonverbal cues elicited
the responses you observed. Choose one or two examples from your chart
to illustrate your analysis.
