  12. 12. Content vs Relationship All IP communication has both elements ◦ Example:  Your favorite movie is “Titanic”  Your friend says “Oh that movie is so stupid”  Your feelings are hurt b/c you interpret that to mean your friend thinks you are stupid.  Your friend doesn’t understand – the opinion was about the movie, not you.
  13. 13.  Content: Titanic is a stupid movie Relationship: Does that mean you think I’m stupid!?!? Lesson: We have to be careful not to add content that isn’t there, but also think about how our comments impact the relationship.
