  • 1. Chapter 7 Interpersonal Communication
  • 2. Interpersonal Communication
    • Interaction with others; usually informal
    • Emotional intelligence – the ability to understand and get along with others
  • 3. Emotional Intelligence
    • Being self-aware: recognizing your own emotions and being able to take a step back from them from yourself and others so you are not overwhelmed
    • Managing emotions: displaying emotions that are appropriate for the situation and setting. This may be difficult to do
  • 4. Emotional Intelligence
    • Motivating yourself: setting a goal and working until you meet it; not getting distracted
    • Recognizing emotions in others: using empathy which is the ability to recognize and share someone’s feelings
    • Handling relationships: having a sense of balance in your life with work, relationships, etc
  • 5. Attraction
    • Physical – sexual or otherwise; what is beauty? Are you first / more attracted to beauty or personality?
    • Perceived Gain – often we are attracted
    • to people because of what
    • they can give to us or do
    • for us; social hierarchy
  • 6. Attraction
    • Similarities and Differences – do opposites really attract? Are you compatible in your beliefs and / or attitudes?
    • Proximity – the contact you have with a person; do you work or go to school together? Sometimes you BECOME attracted to someone just because you spend so much time with them
  • 7. Motivations for Interpersonal Communication
    • Pleasure
    • Affection
    • Inclusion – Maslow’s social level
    • Relaxation –
    • Control – over selves or others
    • Health
    • Cybermotivation
  • 8. Roles, Relationships, and Communications
    • All relations are governed by peoples’ roles
    • Role expectations sometimes become very fixed in a relationship and may be difficult to change
    • Gender roles – these have changed for some; may cause issues
  • 9. Small Talk
    • This is how you begin a conversation or
    • used as a standard greeting
    • (how are you?
    • Did you
    • see the game
    • last night? etc.)
  • 10. Bids and the Bidding Process
    • Bids are what holds a relationship together
    • A bid – a look, touch, etc that says to someone “I want to feel connected with you.”
    • A response to a bid – the reaction you give to someone’s bid (positive or negative)
  • 11. Bids and the Bidding Process
    • Bids must be continued to have an on-going relationship; a one-time look or touch DOES NOT make a relationship
