  • Although all of us have been communicating with others since our infancy, the process of transmitting information from an individual (or group) to another is a very complex process with many sources of potential error. Thus it is no surprise that social psychologists estimate that there is usually a 40-60% loss of meaning in the transmission of messages from sender to receiver.
  • Examples Curry vs porial I love you Formal dress
  • Contexts 1.
  • If you change the emphasis in the sentence, emphasizing a different word each time you say it, you will change the meaning of the sentence. While the sentence may appear fairly neutral, when the emphasis changes, the emotional tone of the message, and the message itself changes. As we talk to others, it is important to watch our Para-verbal communication, to ensure that the message we send is the one that is heard. The more anxious or agitated a person is, the less they hear the content of your message. They are getting their cues from your voice, not your words.
