Chapter 13 Communication Notes Relationship: An association between at least two people, which may be described in terms of intimacy or kinship. Uncertainty reduction theory: A theory suggesting that when we meet others to whom we are attracted, our need to know about them tends to make us draw inferences from observable physical data. Entry phase: we learn info that is easily observed—sex, race, age, height, economic/social status; don’t ask personal questions. Personal Phase: share attitudes, beliefs, values, and more personal info. Comm is less constrained and more open. Exit phase: the future of the relationship is decided (exchanging numbers after a party) Social Information Processing Theory: A theory suggesting that electronic-mediated communication relationships grow only to the extent that people first gain information about each other and use that information to form the impressions. Social Exchange Theory: a theory based on the assumption that people consciously and deliberately weigh the costs and rewards associated with a relationship or interaction.

What students are saying

    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.
