1. Why is self-concept critical to the development of communication skills? Give an ex- ample of how this applied to an event in your life. Self-concept is critical to the development of communication skills by allowing one to communicate more effectively. Self-concept is composed of self assessments of one’s physical and mental attributes. Increased knowledge of one’s own body and mind means proportionate skills in communicating to others. Having an advanced self- concept may help a person stay away from unpleasant situations or get invited to excit- ing social gatherings. Likewise, a poor self-concept may lead to a person feeling awk- ward and unable to communicate one’s desires and needs. An example of this applied to a real life situation was when I was invited to a Football Sunday Party. Normally I am a very social person, so I had to decide if going to the party would be the right thing to do. I am not a fan of football, know very little about it, and would not enjoy watching it, so I politely decline the invitation.

    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.
