  • Communicating: Sending, Receiving, Interpreting Information

There are several factors that will affect how messages are sent, received and interpreted. As you have been reading in your text as well, we explore words and then a lot more than just words in interpersonal communication. We also focus on things like tone, volume, accents, clothing, environment, gender, age, socio-economic status, demographics, etc. These are all factors that will impact communication.
