Interaction adaptation - Sarah Chepregi

  1. 1. interactionadaptation<br />Sarah Chepregi<br />
  2. 2. What?<br />a theory of theories; a compilation, if you will.<br />this theory<br />attempts to make <br />predictionsabout <br /> communicative <br /> interactions <br />between humans<br />
  3. 3. what do you expect <br />when you approach <br />this group of people?<br />
  4. 4. vs. this group of people?<br />
  5. 5. we go into conversation with others with:<br />expectations <br />about how they will communicate.<br />THE POINT<br />we have <br />requirements<br />based on how we need<br />them to communicate.<br />and we have <br />desires <br />based on whatand how we want <br />them to communicate.<br />
  6. 6. expectations come from social norms. <br />involves: appearance, context, attire<br />I’m not stupid.<br />requirementsentail biological needs. <br />hard of hearing? you need others to <br />speak loudly and clearly. <br />GET IT?<br />desires stem from personal goals of the conversation. <br />what do you want to gain or accomplish?<br />
  7. 7. =<br />when one individual’s <br />expectations, requirements, and desires matchthe other individual, littleadaptation is required. <br />communication can proceed normally.<br />
  8. 8. OR…<br />if the three elements are different,<br />one party must alter or adapt<br />their behavior in order to effectively communicate. <br />
  9. 9. humans feel the need to adapt for a number of reasons: <br />1) the need to fit into a mold, or to meet standards set in place by our society<br />2) to gain social approval from the party they are communicating with<br />3) to maintain a positive identity to those they are communicating with<br />
  10. 10. Who cares?<br />…EVERYONE!<br />
  11. 11. interaction adaptation theory <br />is useful for all communicators.<br />everyone experiences this<br /> theory in practice, though<br /> almost always unaware of it.<br />especially useful for those involved with:<br />Applied/organizational communication <br />(training to improve communication between supervisors and employees)<br />Intercultural communication <br />(similarities vs. differences of cultures)<br />Interpersonal communication <br />(communication between pairs)<br />
  12. 12. there are few blatant criticisms of this theory since it basically took the good parts out of other theories and made a new one. <br />however, not all social norms are perceived the same way from everyone, and people will have different expectations based on their life experiences. <br />this theory cannot be<br />subjective.<br />*it is important to note that all communication is circumstantial. <br />
  13. 13. So…<br />expectation, requirements, desires <br />offer to make predictionson how we will communicate with one another<br />we need to adapt to others when the situation when it calls for it<br />you do this unconsciously<br />
