▯ 1. Describe a situation where external response to emotions would be used? These are the external responses to emotions: Blushing, sweating ▯ Some behaviors also change: Facial expressions, posture, gestures, vocal tone and rate. 2. Compare and contrast the physiological changes to nonverbal reaction. Your body is actually changing internally for the physiological changes. For example, like pupil dilation or heart rate or blood pressure. In nonverbal reactions they’re external to ways of you actually sweating on the OUTSIDE of your body. 1. What is the difference between state and trait apprehension? The state apprehension is more common. And the trait tends to be more rare. When a person experiences anxiety only in a certain context or with a particular person or group is state apprehension. When a person experiences anxiety about communicating in all situations is trait apprehension. 2. Describe two ways to cope with communication apprehension before a speech? ▯ 1. Reduce self-awareness: don’t think about the performance, think of it as a task to make it through, focus on the topic. ▯ 2. Breathe: Really. If you can focus on your breath, from your diaphragm, not your chest, you will feel better and your words will have more power. ▯ 3. Relax: Easier said than done. Warm-up for speaking like you would for exercise. ▯ 4. Be Prepared: If you are not confident in what you are about to say, it will start a snowball effect that will lead to greater anxiety. ▯ 1. Describe an example of the Direct Effects Model in action, and explain how it is used in your example. Example: Georgia Clooney Movie (Out of Sight) ▯ Chatting with someone you’ve only met from class. A Road Trip with someone for 8 hours (not knowing someone in the car) 2. Give an example of how the relationship is an antecedent of immediacy. ▯ The relationship- we are more likely to give immediacy cues to those with which we have a positive relationship. ▯ ▯ The behaviors increase as the relationship becomes closer but then diminishes as the relationship enters the bonding stage (marriage). 1. Describe what dialectical tensions are and give two examples Dialectical Tensions: conflicts that arise when two opposing or incompatible forces exist simultaneously. Risk vs. Reward Although trust must be earned, all relationships require a leap of faith. Openness vs. Privacy We want to share, but at the same time keep something to ourselves. 2. Name two of the 4 dimensions of intimacy and give an example for each of how it might take place ▯ 1. Physical (Hug when you see a friend) ▯ 2. Intellectual sharing (from classroom to classroom) ▯ 3. Emotional (share with people who we are) ▯ 4. Shared activities
