“Communication occurs”= Sender intends to send a message and the receiver recognizes the sender’s intent. “Communication Attempted”= Sender sends a message but the receiver does not recognize the sender’s intent. “Communication Attributed”= Sender does not intend on sending a message but the receiver perceives the sender had a message. “Perception: Communication Does Not Occur”= Sender does not intend to send a message and receiver does not perceive sender intent. 8. What are the advantages of the text’s view of communication? The text views communication as something that specifies what something is; Distinguishes what something is from what something is not. *Communication is intentional. (According to Infante, does communication have to involve at least two people?) 9. What are objections to the text’s view of communication? Some theorists say that behavior is communication. The book (Infante) says that behavior is only communication if that behavior is intentional that is it directly correlates and agrees with what the sender is communicating, making the behavior a symbol. To be intentional, communication must have symbols which are created for the purpose of communicating. These symbols may be Verbal (words) and/or Nonverbal (gestures, facial expressions, etc. that have commonly understood meanings).
