Interpersonal relationships can take form in many different ways and are everywhere, such as at the workplace, school, home, and even the grocery store. Interpersonal relationships consist of family, friendship, social, romantic, and online relationships; all of these relationships have one big thing in common: the element of communication. In the movie, The Notebook, the film primarily focuses on the romantic relationship between people named Noah and Allie. Upon meeting Noah, a poor man, and Allie, an upper-class woman, quickly fall in love, however, struggle with maintaining their relationship due to their social differences. The movie displays an array of interpersonal communication concepts, such as the social exchange theory, the declining
Self-reliance. Not very many people have this. Today, our society has grown to become so reliant on one another that people forget how important being independent is in their lives. Ayn Rand shows that this is true through her dystopian novel, Anthem. She does this by developing a protagonist, Equality-72521, who seeks to have the privilege of exploring and taking risks. Equality-72521 lives in a society that shames him for being curious and having an imagination different from the others around him by telling him that he should not be different from others. By placing him into this situation, Rand proves to her readers that the only way to success is through trust in oneself, even through failures and the doubt of others. Rand depicts the theme that self-reliance on one’s own thoughts, actions, and curiosity is the key to success in her novel, Anthem, by showing her readers that taking risks is necessary to learn new things.
This theory was made by Michael Argyle (1925- 2002), who was a social psychologist. In the late 1960s he studied social skills, body language, non-verbal communication and interpersonal behaviour. In this study, he found that non-verbal signals can be much more important and useful than verbal communication when trying to trigger peoples’ attitudes and feelings. His research showed and found that the stronger the relationship between the people communicating so with close friends for example the much better eye contact. However, when the relationship is not very strong so when speaking to a stranger people don’t have very good eye contact and they tend to look away when talking. Argyle thought that a positive attitude and the feelings a close friendship has can be encouraged by the good and effective eye contact. He also found that non-verbal signals are just important and effective as verbal signals or communication.
In Mcleod’s article, it said that people “‘think about, evaluate, or perceive’ themselves” (Mcleod 1). Mcleod talks, in the article, about how people thinking, evaluating, and perceiving about themselves is call self-concept. Whenever people think about themselves, most of the time, people are confused about whether or not they are pursuing right actions for their future, especially people with low self-esteem . Furthermore, people get more confused if their actions dramatically differ from others. However, again, people’s actions determine who they are, so even if their actions are dramatically different from others, it may be a path for that person’s success. Following others do not mean people will be as successful as them.
The book, Interpersonal Communications: Everyday Life describes a family life cycle, which includes various steps that some families go through. The first step is establishing a family, during this phase a couple begins living together and is committed to their relationship. To do this in a positive manner the couple must communicate with each other to decide where they will live and whether to get married or not. Communication brings the couple closer and hopefully will make the transition from living alone to living together easier. The second step is enlarging the family. This is when couples add children to their family and communication must play a role in that decision. Couples must ask each other when they would like to have children

Interpersonal communication has impacted me and my life in a lot of ways. Few of the many ways how it has impacted me and my life are, I learned a lot while just talking to people. Every other person I talk to makes me grow in their own way for example, I interact with my dad’s friends a lot and from them I learned a lot about the different approaches to life and how the success story of each person differs teaches me about the different paths I can walk on towards success. Very small of interactions with people can make a person’s day and it always works for me like for example, when I used to go to college the security guard over there used to always greet me as if he meant it and that small gesture made me feel as if there are people out
Few days after the workshop we had on the office last month . Kavina ( the POC in store 11291) called Stephanie ( my pharmacy partner) introduced her self to her (as they did not know each other from before) and told her that during the meeting I talked badly about her as a weak pharmacist.
The appropriate solution to the supervisor, Ed is not to deliver his negative feedback of a team member by e-mail. He needs to calm down and other e-mail can sometimes be misconstrued and taken out of context. The e-mail can also be sent to others and cause tension between co-workers therefore creating a hostile work environment.
Growing up, I was always happy. Even though I wasn’t the prettiest girl in school or the skinniest I was so content with my two buck front teeth and uneven pigtails. I searched for the good in every situation and never felt the need to dwell on the bad. I laughed every chance I got and admired my smile the second I got a glimpse of it in any mirror. Then one day it all changed. I had someone whom I once thought was a friend abandon me because he was embarrassed at the fact that people thought him and myself were an item. In a way I felt he stopped talking to me because of his own insecurities, he had a journal that he would write his feelings in and one day he left it behind in class, unfortunately some kids got ahold of it and began to make fun of him and call him names. The next thing I know, he was taking his frustrations out on me and told everyone not to be my friend. From that point on I was often teased about the little things apart of me and although I was raised to have tough skin the things people would say and the way they would act towards me began to hurt. I became so self-aware
Hello, I agree with your post in all aspects. I strongly also believe that someone has to be going through hard times to want to isolate themselves from others. I also like how you mention she would soon start feeling lonely after a couple of days as she does mentioned in the video of her history with depression.
“Being assertive means that you express yourself effectively and stand up for your point of view,
Interpersonal communication seeks to understand how humans use verbal and nonverbal cues to accomplish personal and relational goals. It is an important area of study, as it helps us better understand how to communicate with others. This paper draws upon interpersonal communication theories, and applies them to one of my own personal challenges. In doing so, we can see how these theories fit into our everyday lives. In addition, we can also improve our own communication skills, and resolve problems using these communication theories and strategies.
Who am I? I am Quentina Burnett and I have been developed by socialization, to be able to fit within the society. Socialization is the process where an individual learns behavior, values, culture, and norms of the society to develop his or her personality to become a proficient person in the society (Keirns et al., 2016). This process starts in the early stage of a baby, to an adult, and continues until the individual dies. The process of socialization gives people and myself the basic social contact and social interaction needed to develop “self”. Self is the ability to know right from wrong, understanding the society norms, behaviors, culture, and values. An example of this is learning and talking the native language, know how to eat from a spoon, and able to communicate with other people. If people or myself fail to experience socialization, they will not possess the acquired skills needed to develop self. This process is required for me to be apart and successful fit in the society.
Interpersonal communication is intriguing and convincing to peruse. It is amazingly relatable to one's day-to-day life. As one peruses interpersonal communication, he or she may get himself or herself considering cases in day by day life and connections that specifically corresponds to most of the elements of interpersonal communication. I found the elements to be frightfully similar to how people use these elements to communicate with others. Interpersonal communication portrays the communication between at least two people through verbal and non-verbal. I believe these elements are the easiest to understand maybe because of the immediate connection with individuals’ lives. The elements of interpersonal communication are the communicators,
