People are perceived in many different ways. Some of these are internal or external. It is the way you view yourself, or the way people examine you. People have their own qualities that make them unique, although people will have the same feelings about certain topics. I interviewed three different people to examine their feelings about different interpersonal communications topics. The result of the interview was that, people all have their own perspective on each individual topic. The interviews demonstrated that people have different quality and traits that would enable them to choose their answer they gave. The first interview I held, I found that he was quite similar to me and my beliefs. I started the interview off by asking him what his public self concept was. He told me that his public self was fun, nice, a good kid, social, and outgoing. Public self is what you want others to perceive you as. These are good traits to have due to the reason that others want to be around you. Since he strives to be a person with high energy, people like to be surrounded by it. I also agree with his assessment. I try to have these qualities for public self. I feel that the characteristics make for an energetic human being. Since he told me about his public self, I was interested in what he was hiding and did not want people to know. I asked him what his real self-concept was. The answer he gave me came as a shocker. He told me that he gets annoyed easily, gets angry easily, closed minded, cocky, and somewhat shy. My initial perception of him was that he was friendly and caring, so that why it came off as a surprise to me. Usually people with those traits are somewhat snobby and closed off. He told me that his self esteem was positive. He referred back to his real self concept and told me that he sometimes he gets full of himself and becomes cocky. He said that he tries to refrain from being cocky, but sometimes can’t help himself. He added that he felt that this was inherited from his parents. This is very possible, because self-concept does affect our attributions. This can be external or internal; external is inherited from our environment

while internal is inherited by an individual. I asked him what his affection level is and how much he needs. He replied by telling me that it was low, but it’s nice to have once in a while. Affection is a part of the three types of major interpersonal needs. Even though, he told me he had a low need for affection, he still said that it was nice to have. This means that he still needs that
