1) Think of someone (a family member, a politician, a celebrity, a clergyman or clergywoman, an instructor, or a friend) who demonstrates competent and effective communication in a particular context. What behaviors does this person exhibit that make him or her particularly effective? Would you want to model some of your own communication behavior after this person? Why or why not?
2) Have you ever given off an unintentional message that was improperly decoded (for example, blushing during an argument because you are angry, while your significant other assumes it means you were lying)? What did you do the clarify that message? Was it effective?
