Communication 130 Intro to Human Communication (1/21/16 – 2/2/16) Chapter One [Intro to Human Communication] Why engage in Communication? We communicate every day. Professional Reasons – Job interviews. Personal Reasons – Helps us express our feelings and thoughts. Health – An example of this is when an elderly person passes away, their spouse usually passes away shortly after because of the lack of communication in their life after their partner died. Communication Misconceptions Meaning is in the words we use. o This is false because we, as people, give words their meaning. We have a natural ability to communicate effectively. o This is also false because we must learn how to communicate through socialization. Defining Communication Definition: The systematic process in which people interact with and through symbols to interpret meaning. o By “meaning,” this is referring to a content and relationship level. Communication Models Linear – simplest model, it is a one way flow that involves one person simply talking to another. Interactive – Unlike the linear model, this model includes the second person giving feedback to the first person. Transactional – Includes all the elements of communication. These elements include: Source/Sender (Encoder) Receiver (Decoder) Feedback Message/Channel Noise (And/or conflict happening in the background) Time (Pertaining to the past, present, and future) Context Frame of Reference (The history/similarities between the people in the conversation) Chapter Two [Historical and Contemporary Perspective] Origin of the communication discipline Communication has been around for approximately 2500 years. Originated in Sicily. Philosophers added to the discipline Socrates Aristotle – Pillars of Persuasion Plato Ethos – Who’s do we look to? Pathos – Emotion Logos – Logic Social/ Political Upheaval (1960s and 1970s) Civil Rights Movement Women’s Rights Perception Definition: Active process of selecting, organizing, and interpreting people, objects, events, situations, and activities. Organization – Making sense of what we have selected. o 4 Cognitive Schemata Prototypes: Ideal/Best example. Personal Constructs: Bipolar judgment. Stereotypes. Scripts: The sequence of activities. (We have schemas for everything we do, we just do not realize it. Example: You act a certain way when you are at a funeral; you do not crack jokes or start laughing.)
