        • The relationships is one of equality
      • Complementary Relationships - the two individuals engage in different behaviors
        • The behavior of one person stimulates the other’s complimentary behavior

    • 6. Interpersonal Communication Refers to Content and Relationships

    • 7. Interpersonal Communication is a Series of Punctuated Events

    • 9. Interpersonal Communication Is…
      • Inevitable
      • Irreversible
      • Unrepeatable
    • 10. Inevitability
      • A principle of communication holding that:
        • Communication cannot be avoided
          • All behavior in an interactional setting is communication
      • Any aspect of your behavior may communicate if the other person gives it message value
        • All responses have potential message value as well
    • 11. Irreversibility
      • What you have communicated remains communication; you cannot un communicate
        • Electronic messages are virtually impossible to destroy
        • Electronic messages can easily be made public
      • You can try to qualify, negate or reduce the effects of you message
        • But the message itself can never be reversed
    • 12. Unrepeatability
      • Everyone and everything is constantly changing
      • You can never recapture the exact same situation, frame of mind, or relationship dynamics… can never repeat the experience of:
        • Meeting someone for the first time
        • Comforting a grieving friend
        • Resolve a specific conflict
