CHAPTER 1 Communication A conscious or unconscious, intentional or unintentional process, in which feelings and ideas are expressed as verbal and/or nonverbal messages that are sent, received and comprehended. The process of communicating can be accidental, expressive, or rhetorical. There are 3 levels: Intrapersonal communication- communicating with yourself (ex: listening, decision- making) Interpersonal communication- communication that takes place between 2 or more persons who establish a communicative relationship (ex: interviews or small-group discussions) Public communication- a speaker sending a message to an audience (ex: through radio or tv) Communication is dynamic (always changing), continuous (always occurring), irreversible (cannot be taken back) and interactive (we are always communicating with ourselves or other people). Selective Communication is when we choose the symbol we believe best represents the idea or concept we wish to express. When we communicate, we encode (put ideas into message forms), send the ideas through our primary signal system (our five senses) to someone else’s primary signal system, and decode (interpret) received messages.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
