The affinity-seeking construct “describes ways people get others to like and feel positive about them. The research is grounded in the presumption that people attempt to generate liking by using various communication strategies.” (Bell & Daly, 1984). In other words, in our efforts to develop affinity with others, we strategically try to communicate our nonverbal and verbal messages in a positive way. Therefore, we hope they will perceive it in a positive light and get a positive response in return. When we use affinity-seeking in our interpersonal communication relationships, we tend to try to set a likeable tone that would hopefully result in a closer relationship.
Can speech analysis lead to personality definition? Traditionally questionnaires have been used to investigate people’s personality and classify them in groups. Different taxonomy models have been developed throughout the ages. Speech analysis provides yet another input to feed those models. What elements of spoken language express personality traits?
You can find people who tend to like the same types of things but not every single little detail of everything that one likes, the other would like too. There are similarities which connects people, but differences is what makes people feel connected to themselves. The choices in life we have are not as limited as people think. People feel pressured to like the same things as others so that they will be well likes but little do they know, if they like something different and express it freely and passionately they will most likely be worshiped for showing a more unique and inquisitive side of
Communication Introduction to Communication Developmental Theory Keyton (2011) defined communication as a process for people to convey, exchange, and receive information with others. According to Cheney (2011), every communication developmental theories basically rooted from the similar principles that involve encoder (sender), message (either in form of verbal and non-verbal), decoder (receiver), feedback, and noise. In this case, we would look into the message part both in verbal (language) and non-verbal (body language) as to review the communication progress of observed individuals. It is because “message” play as a determinant role of quality communication and communication effectiveness is highly depends on this element (Keyton, 2011).
1. Introduction At times, people would borrow words and ideas from other works to fit specific situations and purposes. Whether conscious or not, they are using intertextuality. Originally coined and developed by the poststructuralist Julia Kristeva (1986) in 1966, the term intertextuality has been widely accepted and used in the field of modern and postmodern literary criticism. In their Introduction to Text Linguistics, De Beaugrande and Dressler (2002) state that intertextuality “concerns the factors which make the utilization of one text dependent upon knowledge of one or more previously encountered texts”.
As for Piaget, interaction with peers is more effective than those with people carrying higher skills and capabilities. The reason is that peers’ ability is almost equivalent with each other. So that it is not stressful for people to express different views. Consequently, cognitive development is promoted by interaction with peers through cognitive conflicts. On the contrary, cognitive development is motivated by interaction with people such as teachers and parents in Vygotsky’s theory (Vygotsky,1978).
It states that equivalence is achieved through the learner being exposed to reinforcements of language and a verbal community. Different researchers have come up with different ways to discriminate their procedures therefore the results vary. One such arbitrarily example is when a child learns to name objects and events in their world they are relational responding this according to behaviorist is a stimulus that can be link to many stimuli (Barnes-Holmes , Barnes-Holmes , Smeets , Cullinan, & Leader , 2004). It is important to note that equivalence stimuli is an empirical occurrence and RFT is the theory of how that occurrence came about; therefore they are different in many ways but can work together to derive results that can help researchers learn about the
Hi I’m Chanel and the question I am going to be answering is how and in what ways does language help or hinder our acquisition of knowledge. Before looking at the effect of language on the acquisition of knowledge, i 'll unpack the term “language” as a way of knowing. Language is a tool for people to communicate and it helps us to express feelings and transmit knowledge. There are different forms of language, and every single language all have both advantages and disadvantages. For instance, spoken language is more direct than written language and that body language is more universal and can be understood by most of the people.
Definition of bilingualism The notion of bilingualism is frequently connected to the idea of code-switching since a person should have ability to speak using two or more than one variety. Researchers have made countless studies describing bilingualism as they create awareness in different ways. To begin with is Bloomfield (1933) who defined bilingualism as having the “native- like control of two languages”. However, Haugen (1953) pinpointed that bilingualism is the ability of a speaker to communicate and understand an additional variety. This is to mean that the concept of bilingualism exist only when an individual of a certain variety has the capability to communicate effectively in an additional variety.
According to “Positive Psychology and the Science of Happiness”, “People who volunteer or simply care for others on a consistent basis seem to be happier and less depressed”. Perhaps this is because their focus is now outside of themselves. If the person in the conflict remains positive, he or she will affect their environment in a positive manner. Elevated mental energies are fostered as a result of a positive
This is in contrast with the vertical-goal attack strategy, in that each session focuses on a wide range of sounds in the phonological system (Bernthal et al., 2013). Elbert and Gierut (1986) described the horizontal strategy as one that trains broad, in that it addresses more sounds at once, and therefore, it works to modify the phonological system more efficiently (Bernthal et al., 2013). Furthermore, the client is likely to determine commonalities among speech sounds, thus providing the client with an enhanced overall understanding of the phonological system (Bernthal, et al.,
Research suggests that people who are similar in personality tend to be more attracted to each other than opposites (Lilenfeld et al., 2010). Dating sites specifically match individuals together based on common interests, beliefs, or desires. Even people that do not use dating sites tend to look for a mate that shares similar traits to them. Furthermore, there is a linear relationship between similar attitudes and liking: As the more commonalities between the people are found, the more they like each other (Lilenfeld et al., 2010). Whether it is a friendship or a more intimate relationship, people like those who they can agree with more than those they disagree with.
