But there is also an external context (medium, place and time), which has a crucial impact on the receiver’s interpretation.

  • 24. Influences Feel . Think . Act The ideal reaction on the part of receivers: The feeling gets them to experience something (often conveyed visually). The thought gets them to find out about something (often conveyed verbally). The action is the result of the interplay between the visual and the verbal.
