background image Chapter 1: Foundations of Communications   -What is an example of psychological noise?  Daydreaming  -The concepts of intimacy and control help explain which communication principle?  Communication is relational   -What best captures our knowledge of communication?  Communication is learned   - What is something that is not necessary for communication competence?  Happiness   -Jalisa is giving a speech in her class. The air conditioning in the room isn't working, and because there 
are so many students in the room seated so closely together, the classroom is unusually hot that day. As 
she approaches the podium, she begins to sweat. What element of the communication context is 
described here? 
Physical situation   -If a person communicates a response to a message, that person is providing the speaker with  Feedback   -What is an aspect that is not true of culture?  It determines whether or not a communicator is ethical   -A __________ is an actual text of what to say and do in a specific situation.  Script  -The ________ context is the background provided by previous communications between participants.  Historical  - _________________ is a complex process through which we express, interpret, and coordinate 
messages with others. 
  Communication     -Sarah asks her friend, Tony, what he thinks about her new haircut. While Tony isn't crazy about Sarah's 
haircut, he replies, "It looks great." What kind of message is this? 
Easy dark side  -Encoding is the process of interpreting another's message. 
background image False  - Julie's communication interactions with her boyfriend are an example of intrapersonal communication.  False  -When Jeff noticed that he had a particular skill he needed to improve to become a better speaker, he 
devised and carried out a strategy for improving on this skill. This strategy is known as a method for 
measuring progress. 
False  -The ability to manage your nervousness and anxiety about speaking so that you don't appear to have 
speech apprehension is known as social ease. 
  True  -When Darius was giving his informative speech about health care in America, he made a concerted 
effort when researching to gather all relevant facts, consider only information that was relevant to 
informing his audience, and not to let personal opinion influence his speech. His careful attention to 
impartiality is a reflection of his duty to behave fairly as an ethical communicator. 
  True   -Messages that are spoken without much conscious thought are known as constructed messages.  False  -Bill asks his wife to go on vacation. She replies that she's not sure that a vacation is in their budget and 
will get back to him. Bill responds by saying "Let me know if you think we can do it." This is an example 
of complementary feedback. 
  True   -It's OK if we say things that offend people because we can take back things that we say as if it never 
False  -Communication is crucial to the development of an individual sense of self.    True             
background image Chapter 2: Perception of Self and Others  - We pay attention to and select things based on our needs, interests and goals.  False  - Heuristics are a subconscious approach that draws on previous experience to make sense of what we 
False  - If Justin could be anything, he would be a professional basketball player. So he plays regularly 3 times a 
week and runs daily. Justin's behavior is a reflection of his ideal self-concept. 
  True   - Our self-concept is partly shaped by the way that others react to us.    True   - When we encounter things that are out of the realm of our normal experiences or expectations, we 
engage in the process of unconscious processing to make sense of what we are experiencing. 
False  - The process of perception involves selectively attending to and assigning meaning to information.    True   - Independent self-perceptions are based on the belief that traits and abilities are specific to a particular 
context or relationship. 
False  - One way to increase the accuracy of your perceptions is to mindfully pay attention to the person you 
are interacting with in order to understand his or her uniqueness. 
 True  - Self-perception is the overall view we have of ourselves, which includes both self- concept and self-
False  - Offering your interpretation of a behavior is a part of the perception-checking process.   True  - Molly goes into a job interview thinking that there is no way she will get the job. She performs terribly 
in the interview and is not asked back for the second round of interviews. Molly's experience is an 
example of 
Self-fulfilling prophecy
